I’ve posted about Paleo Parents in the past and raved about the resource that it is for how to teach the importance of eating healthy to your kids. Just having one little tyke, I can start to imagine how tough it can be to juggle multiple little ones, busy schedules, and demanding jobs. Luckily, Matt and Stacy (the Paleo Parents themselves) published a great cookbook entitled, “Eat Like a Dinosaur” filled with easy, delicious recipes with fun names. It even suggests ways to involve your children in each recipe!
Because they understand how hard it can be to transition children from the SAD (Standard American Diet) to a clean one, the first chapter talks about realistic ways to do this. For example: including bringing your kids to the market and having them pick out their fruit, or (even better) growing some of your own. They also sprinkle a bit of tough love in there about tough choices parents have to make when it comes to what kids eat (ie “Tony Danza is not the boss…you are”).
I love the book so far and made Eggs in a Nest for breakfast the other day. Cade loved the meat muffins (yes, he is his father’s son) and they were super easy to reheat for snacks (and travel easy too!). Here’s an excerpt from the recipe:
1. Grease muffin pan. **
2. Press a spoonful of sausage into the muffin tin to make a muffin ‘cup.’ **
3. Drop an egg into each cup and drizzle olive oil on each egg. **
4. Bake at 350 for 23-28 minutes.
5. Cool and use a butter knife to pop them out.
**Steps for kids to help with.
A few other recipes I’m dying to try are their various jerky recipes, grain-free granola, and coconut ice creams! You definitely don’t need to have kids to use this book! You can buy it here at Paleo Parents.
Wish Frances a Happy Birthday! He’s had quite a year with the new addition to his family. Hope you have a great day!
