CURRY RICE WITH SUN DRIED TOMATO CHICKEN SAUSAGE AND VEGGIES:

Rice:

  • 1 cup brown rice
  • curry seasoning and other seasoning of your choice
  • 2 1/4 cups water
  • butter and coconut oil (amount of your choice)
  • put seasoning, butter, and oil in water and boil. Add in rice and boil, then simmer for about 50 minutes. Leave a bit of water in…for a “creamy tasty”

 

Sausage and Veggies:

  • coat cast iron skillet with olive oil and a bit of coconut oil
  • slice sausage into thin slices and throw in veggies of your choice
  • mix all around to coat in oils
  • sprinkle with seasoning of choice

This was such a tasty dinner, had a nice flavor and kick without being too spicy. Dino ate every bite!

MASHED POTATOES AND CHICKEN:

Mashed Potatoes:

  • potatoes peeled and cut into small cubes
  • seasoning of choice
  • olive and coconut oil
  • butter and milk
  • coat potatoes with oils and seasoning and bake at 350 for thirty minutes
  • after potatoes are cooked and soft, either mash by hand or in blender.
  • because I season while baking, the flavor is locked in and has wonderful taste. The coconut oil also adds that extra flavor. 

 

Chicken:

  • two large boneless chicken breasts
  • flour and seasoning of choice
  • olive and coconut oil
  • slice breasts into thin slices and marinate, then coat with flour
  • quickly saute breasts on each side for thirty seconds…then cover and place in the oven and bake at 350 for twenty minutes

 

I seem to have lost my potato masher, so I put it in the blender which made it VERY thin. I prefer thick and bumpy mashed potatoes. Will have to try this and make sweet potato soup!!!!

CHOCOLATE CHIP, BANANA PANCAKES:

Pancakes:

  • pancake mix
  • NON-GMO chocolate chips
  • bananas
  • chocolate milk
  • butter
  • coconut oil

 

Dino likes to eat his plain, because they are just THAT good! The times he wants a syrup, we use an organic/NON-GMO jelly with fresh fruit and butter. I mix and microwave together to make a tasty and healthy “syrup”.

What is Dino drinking? R.W. Knudsen makes organic and NON-GMO juices. While I believe the best nutrients come from actual fruit, sometimes a kid just wants to drink juice. This is a juice I can safely give to my son.

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.
