Everyone….and I mean EVERYONE told me that once my beautiful little bean turned 2 she would no longer be interested in eating her ‘super green’ breakfast. I, however did not believe a word of what anyone told me. They had no idea that I was about to prove everyone wrong and have that perfect little child who asks…no demands…to have her kale mixed into her porridge and broccoli with ever meal.
I seem to have a new mantra for 2015, start something new! Well I started a blog, started a cleanse, and now I vow to make fresh meals for the family. Don’t get me wrong…I wasn’t serving my family TV dinner every night, but I was (am) the Queen of ‘make ahead meals’. I would make a big lasagna, shepherds pie, or a stew on Sunday and that would propel us well into mid week. On Wednesday I would make a pizza and Thursday and Friday it would be pasta. My husband nor bean ever complained, but I was getting bored. So I took a vow (after my ‘cleanse’) to eat better and fresher.
So here I am taking this big step into cooking fresh meals every night. I know there are tons of moms (and dads) that do this every night, so why not give it a whirl. Now I need some ideas for quick, simple and fresh meals. I tapped into my cousin’s wealth of information and she supplied me with a few tools to get started. So yesterday it was fish tacos with fresh black bean salsa and tonight we will be feasting on chicken stir fry with ginger jasmine rice. Sounds pretty good huh?!??! I just have to get out of the mindset that as soon as I get home from work I relax…nope…not until dinner is done.
Tell me your quick, easy, and fresh meal ideas!!!!!!
