29th Thurs Dinner couscous, veggies,
chickpeas I didn’t soak the chickpeas long enough, so I decided to use all the chickpeas for hummus
30th Fri Dinner homemade hummus, tortilla chips, cheese sticks, and fruit
homemade hummus is pretty easy and healthy. I loved making it. Here’s some great hummus recipes I made our hummus with dried chickpeas, I soaked them overnight in TONS of water, cooked them the next day with lots of seasoning then added our ingredients. I added some pesto, cilantro, and dill. Wonder what I will try next time?
31st Sat Dinner
leftovers This was the day of Dino’s birthday party, I was happy to whip up leftovers and eat whatever, but hubby kindly got burgers and chicken fingers form our favorite place. The cake was from Stop and Shop, sadly it was NOT GMO free… IT would have cost too much. The snacks and juice I got for the party were all NON-GMO though.
1st Sun Dinner pasta, sauce, leftover turkey meatballs – Love when I have leftovers I can incorporate into another meal.
2nd Mon Dinner coconut chicken, potatoes, carrots, squash – DID I get a picture of this? NOPE.
3rd Tues Dinner sports skills night AND DINO’s BDAY Dino LOVED going out on his b-day. He chose our favorite pizza place (we had the leftovers for lunch) and had gelato for his bday dessert. He always orders the pepperoni pizza, I got the pesto pizza.
Leslie from Pampers, Play dates, and Parties asked that I show some healthy snacks I have for Dino… Thanks for the idea Leslie
While I want Dino to eat organic and NON-GMO, I know that we still need chocolate and sweets occasionally. If they are made from safe foods then I will buy them.
I always have fruit that Dino can get anytime he wants…bananas, raisins, apples, pears… I love to put peanut butter on anything…
Some of our favorite snacks are…
Yes, buying organic/NON-GMO is expensive. Until there is a big change in food production and what consumers buy, healthy choices will always be more expensive. If you want to start small with organic…here are some great tips.
