Local Farmers Market Foods - Yummy!

Do your kids have a hollow leg?

Lately I find myself wondering where my three little monkeys put all the food they’ve been eating. Ever since we have taken them off processed foods they eat all day every day. Every time I turn around there is at least one child in the fridge and another asking what we are having for a snack. Has anyone else ever experienced this with their children?

Thankfully we discovered the farmers market because this is seriously the only affordable way to satisfy both the little ones and my pocketbook. Last weekend we bought apples, peaches, nectarines, two huge baskets of blueberries and strawberries, broccoli, peppers, a cucumber and green onions . Thank goodness Sunday is coming because we have nothing left from our trip. Running out of our vegetable haul is great since it means there’s no waste, but holy moly they are eating us out of house and home.

Loading Up On Healthy Breakfasts

So I have come up with a plan. I will start making them healthy baked goods and I might even try giving them some oatmeal so they have something to stick to their ribs as the saying goes. Now I know my kids won’t eat a bowl of oatmeal so I plan on sneaking it into their smoothies with breakfast (which, by the way, is the only way I can sneak protein into my 6 year old in the morning). I use greek yogurt in his smoothies since he doesn’t eat eggs or bacon although recently he had started to eat sausage patties so I will count that as a win.

I guess I will just have to deal with their hollow legs for now but I can’t even begin to imagine how much food we will go thru once their all teenagers!
