1) I am still trying to add new vegetables to our dinner rotations and trying to branch out and like new things. I do not like cooked carrots. I never have. I will eat them if they are mixed in with things - like stew or soup, but I am not crazy about them plain. However, I tried this recipe for Maple Glazed Carrots and they were SO good. They are not as healthy as straight up carrots but the recipe only calls for 1 tablespoon of syrup and I bought the fancy organic grade B maple syrup like my sister told me to because she knows about healthy cool paleo stuff and I get confused and overwhelmed and just read you are not supposed to eat soy or your thyroid might die and oh my gosh I love edamame and I like to eat oatmeal for breakfast which apparently is not a superfood so sue me. Anyway, the carrots are delicious. Even the next day the leftovers were still good. I will definitely be making them again.
2) Lara Bars, mmm. My sister introduced me to these. I have only tried a couple so far, but I want to try more of them. Some contain just 2 ingredients, like peanuts and dates. Cambry likes them too. I finally stopped eating chocolate chip granola bars (I pretty much ate one a day for years), so this is a good alternative for a snack on the go.
3) I still love making smoothies, and Cambry loves them too. I recently wrote a post for HMB with 3 smoothie recipes. You can read it here.
And a bonus item related to food. Greg and I want to try out Costco. I went once a while back and didn't think it was really for me. Still, I always hear such great things about it and friends that find great products there. I think the problem it that it is just so big and I don't know what to get. So if anyone has suggestions on products that they love from Costco, please share!
