For the Moms of Kids Who Don’t Like Veggies

Here’s what you need to know about my family:

Just because I promote the veggies, encourage the veggies, and always provide the veggies doesn’t mean my kids always love or want to eat the veggies.

Fruits and Veggies On the Go 2

Can you relate?

It drives me a little bit crazy until I remember that when I was a kid about the only veggie I ate was canned green beans. I finally learned to like iceburg lettuce when I was in college. Somehow I survived until I learned to love many different kinds of veggies. I want better for my kids, and thankfully, they are getting way more veggies than I ever did, even if it isn’t always what I would consider “enough.”

Veggies for veggie scramble

Some tips I’ve learned through 19 years of trying to get enough veggies into my kids:

1. Provide them for every meal.

They can’t learn to eat them and love them if you don’t buy them and serve them.

2. Offer a variety.

I don’t love every single veggie in the world, so why would I expect my kids to? Not all of my boys like the same veggies, but they all like some. I try to serve more than one at each meal. That means that sometimes they’ll get more than one if they like everything I serve. But even if they don’t, they can at least choose the ones they like.

3. Sneak the spinach into (almost) everything.

You can’t even taste it. Check out this list of foods I tear spinach into while cooking.

4. Be a good example.

If the parents are whining about the veggies, so will the kids. Again, you don’t have to like them all, but you can be a great example to your kids when you take a nice portion of those you do love. I encourage you to try new ones every once in a while too. Our palates really do change through the years!

5. Relax.

I know we all want what’s best for our kids, so it can feel pretty awful if our kids hate vegetables and only want to eat gold fish crackers. Keep trying. Don’t nag. Don’t force. My kids have gone from eating very few veggies to loving many as they’ve gotten older.

By the way, after we had been on the road for so many days during our Christmas trip, ALL of my kids were begging for veggies and were even asking if we had spinach for salads when we got home. Their bodies have learned to crave the good stuff. Hallelujah!

Calling in for back up

I think our nourishment comes best from food. But supplements can help make sure we’re all getting what we need each day since most certainly, our diets are going to have gaps.

Our family was recently sent Juice Plus+ Orchard and Garden Blend Chewables for our kids to try. From their website:

Juice Plus+ is whole food based nutrition, including juice powder concentrates from 30 different fruits, vegetables and grains. Juice Plus+ helps bridge the gap between what you should eat and what you do eat every day. Not a multivitamin, medicine, treatment or cure for any disease, Juice Plus+ is made from quality ingredients carefully monitored from farm to capsule to provide natural nutrients your body needs to be at its best.

juice-plus

I personally found that the chewables are too sweet for me (it doesn’t take much!). I’m glad they are not sweetened with high fructose corn syrup, and wish they weren’t sweetened at all. But, just like I don’t mind my kids dipping veggies in ranch dressing as a way to get the veggies down, I have to land on the fact that even though these have added sweetener, at least it’s getting the nutrients in. My kids really like the taste and don’t mind at all helping themselves get some extra nutrients in the form of a gummy! (Also, Juice Plus+ offers capsules in addition to their gummies – no sugar!)

If you are concerned that your kids aren’t getting enough nutrients from veggies and fruits, Juice Plus+ is a great option to consider. In fact, it’s not just for kids! Adults are also often short on getting enough veggies. Juice Plus+ has capsules for the grown ups, for the kids, for everyone who wants to get more necessary nutrients from fruits and veggies.

Want to try some for free?

Jennifer, a Juice Plus+ representative working with me here, is offering to give one of you a month’s supply of Juice Plus+ Kid Chewables. Warning: If your kids are like mine, they’ll need to be held back from eating the entire package at once. My kids thought it was cool I had gotten them some “healthy fruit snacks.” That’s how good these taste to them! I had to holler in, “Hey, whoa! One per day, guys!”

Juice Plus+ is definitely worth checking into as an option for supplemental nourishment for your family. Check out Jennifer’s Juice Plus+ site here. Enter to win the giveaway for a 2-month supply of chewables below! I’ll draw a random winner on Monday, January 9.

Win 2 Christian DVDs and a $25 Target Gift Card!

Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year.

This year, our family enjoyed putting together some little goodies for several people in our disabled and low income community who have become our friends. It isn’t much, but hopefully it showed the love of Christ. I hope these dear ones know how special they are and how much they’ve come to mean to me.

Can you tell those candy canes are supposed to form a heart?!

community-gifts

Our prayer as of late is that God will help us to:

  • See people through His eyes
  • Learn how to truly love people

You wouldn’t think either of those would be difficult, but we most definitely need God’s help in these simple areas. He is faithful. It’s been amazing how He’s opened our eyes and hearts and helped us learn to love better. It’s been amazing who we “see” at church and in the community when we ask God to “help us see who you need us to see today.” Truly amazing. I encourage you to try it.

As the countdown to Christmas is winding down, here’s a fun and inspirational giveaway for you! Grace Hill Media has recently released two DVDs, Hillsong: Let Hope Rise and Greater. I love watching films like this with my family!

I haven’t seen these yet, but they are to arrive in my mailbox soon. Guess what else? I’ll be receiving copies for one of you, too!

AND, they are sending a $25 Target Giftcard to share with the winner! What a fun Christmas package that will be!

Enter to win this set of DVDs plus the Target giftcard in the Rafflecopter below. I’ll draw a random winner on Friday, December 23.

Easy, Low Sugar, Mini Crustless Cheesecake Recipe (and an amazing Blendtec Giveaway!!)

This has got to be one of my most exciting giveaways to share with you! Why? Because ever since I invested in a Blendtec my kitchen life has become soooo much simpler! I wish I could give one to every person reading this.

I haven’t splattered cream all over my countertops and walls in months. Why? Because I don’t have to whip cream using my hand mixer anymore. Instead, I pour cream into my Blendtec and it whips it for me in less than 30 seconds. It is so, so easy.

I use my Blendtec for homemade applesauce now, throwing cooked apples in peel and all, and it makes beautifully smooth sauce. I use my Blendtec to mix muffin batters, cake batters, cheesecake, and so much more. Of course I use it for smoothies and all the normal blender needs. I use it at least once every day if not three times.

But about the cheesecake! Please allow me to introduce you to one of my favorite new recipes to make:

easy-mini-crustless-baked-cheesecake

I throw the five ingredients into my Blendtec, whip it for a few seconds until it is smooth, pour it into muffin cups, and bake. The stevia sweetens it, the small amount of maple syrup takes away any stevia aftertaste, and I’m left with the most delicious treat!

Leave Your Elf on its Shelf and Use the Shepherd’s Treasure Instead!

I’m not sure I’ll be able to put into words how much I love this. I’ll do my best though. :)

shepherds-treasure

Our kids were already pretty big by the time Elf on the Shelf became a thing, so we never got one for our family. It’s a fun idea, sure, but can I tell you about something that is about a million times better?

The Shepherd’s Treasure

You must check out The Shepherd’s Treasure as a new Christmas tradition for your family!!! I don’t even care that most of my kids are over 6-feet tall. This is the coolest and I want to at least enjoy the idea of it with them as we prepare for the Christmas season.

THIS is something that will point your family toward Jesus. It’s not about “being good” and having an elf report your behavior to Santa. (I’m not knocking that idea, just saying that I love this Shepherd’s Treasure idea so much more!)

Instead of an elf, your family can take part in the adventure of a shepherd boy on a journey. Who is he in search of? Jesus, of course.

There is a beautiful picture book, created by Stephanie Parker, that comes in The Shepherd’s Treasure set. It’s perfect to read with your family as you start your Jesus-seeking adventure with your shepherd this December. Each night, the shepherd can be moved so that your kids can discover him in the morning. He’ll provide your family with a new card to read, which offers scripture and service ideas or activities to read and participate in.

Did I tell you I love this? I really, really love this.

Take a look at this video for more information:

Stephanie, the creator of The Shepherd’s Treasure is providing us all with a discount code HeavenlyHomemakers which gets us all a $10 discount on The Shepherd’s Treasure Book/Doll Set with Advent Cards! That is a HUGE discount considering the entire set of high quality products is such a reasonable price. What a fantastic opportunity for all of us!

I’m thankful for wonderful options like this for families to help us enjoy fun Christmas traditions while keeping Jesus as the center of our celebrations.

If you give your teenager a zit stick… (Win a $50 Gift Certificate to Grandma Bea’s!)

We got a box in the mail, and suddenly the age of each family member in our household became very apparent. Allow me to explain.

Grandma Bea sent us a lovely, full box filled with many of the natural products she offers on her site so that our family could enjoy reviewing them to share with you. We all happened to be in the room at the time of the unpacking. That’s when it happened.

1. Our teenagers saw the Zit Stick and grabbed it quickly. “I hate zits. Let’s see if this works.” Seeing as it only contains coconut oil, beeswax, and essential oils I was absolutely willing to let them put it on their skin. (As it turns out, this stuff is pretty amazing!)

zit-stick

2. Our almost 12-year old saw the Restore Healing Salve and grabbed it. Why? Well, let’s just say he’s a typical, active boy and has a few scrapes and bruises to attend to. Remember though, he’s my boy with super sensitive skin. It’s rare that I let him put ANYTHING on his skin for fear that it will cause a break out. Never fear. After looking over the ingredients in Restore, I gave Malachi the green light.

restore

3. Well, the first two were more fun to tell you about. Now I have to tell you that while my kids were grabbing their age-appropriate goodies out of the box, I reached for the one called Remedy. As Elias was reading about each of the products and he said, “Remedy: to reduce inflammation, relieve pain, muscle and body aches…” I said, “Ooh. Give me that!”

remedy2

So that’s where we are now. My kids are teens and I have aches and pains. (Remedy helped, by the way! Matt appreciated using it the next day, too, when he woke up with a sore elbow.)

The box also contained Refine, which is a lovely face cream. I took that for myself, because I may be getting older, but I AM MOM and I get the luxurious face cream all to myself and I don’t have to share. I applied some to my face right then and there (you know, after I rubbed Remedy on my sore wrist) and I instantly felt refreshed and younger. This stuff feels amazing!

refine

We are all very impressed with Grandma Bea’s products! If you look through her online shop, you’ll see that there are products for just about everything. Don’t pay full price though, because Grandma Bea gave me the code hh10off to share with you. That’ll get you a 10% discount!

Also fun is the fact that Grandma Bea is giving one of you a $50 gift certificate to spend in her shop in any way you wish!

Thank you, Grandma Bea for sending us a box of such useful, wonderful products!

The Simplest Bread Recipe in the World (And Enter to Win a Nutrimill Worth $264!)

The first time I had bread made by my friend Anne, I didn’t believe her when she said it was 100% whole wheat.

no-knead bread 3

I mean, I believed her, because why would she lie? But the bread looked and tasted so much like my grandma’s bread that was most definitely not whole wheat. And the only whole wheat breads I’d had before that were very dense and strong flavored. Anne’s whole wheat bread was light (both in color and in density) and had a most delicious flavor!

She told me that the “secret” to her delicious whole wheat bread was two things:

  1. She used white wheat instead of traditional red wheat flour. The white wheat gave the bread a milder flavor and light golden color. (Up until this conversation, I never even knew that there were different kinds of wheat. So what that I grew up in Kansas?)
  2. She bought wheat as a whole grain and ground it into flour herself. That made the flour much more delicious and healthy.

Well, blow me over. I’d never heard of such things. But I guarantee you right then and there that I wanted to buy some of that grain she was talking about and grind my own flour too.

I started saving up for a grain mill. (Anne recommended a Nutrimill.) When I finally had enough, I bought this beauty:

nutrimill 2

Since then, we’ve gone through thousands of pounds of wheat and made many wonderful whole grain baked goods. I prefer Hard White Wheat for yeast breads and Soft White Wheat for everything else. Everything tastes so much better with freshly ground flour! (Read more information about varieties of wheat and my preferences here.)

I grind more than wheat. My Nutrimill grinds corn, kamut, spelt, hulled buckwheat, oat groats, hully barley, triticalae (though I have no idea what that is!), rye, brown rice, wild rice, popcorn, sorghum, soybeans, split peas, and dried beans. Now that’s one amazing machine!

When I started making my own Whole Wheat Bread consistently, I used this recipe. It’s easy enough, but requires that I block out a few hours for mixing, kneading, rising, kneading, shaping, and baking. No biggie. It’s homemade bread. It’s delicious and worth the effort.

But then last year I discovered Stir-and-Pour Bread. I’m at a time in my life that if there’s a way to make anything simpler (without compromising flavor and health), I absolutely jump on it. The Stir-and-Pour Bread tastes just the same as my old Whole Wheat Bread recipe, but it’s practically effortless to make.

stir and pour sandwich 3

I’ll stick with the Stir-and-Pour Bread, loving the fact that all I have to do is stir the ingredients, let the dough rest, then pour it in a pan to bake. It takes very little time and practically no energy. Talk about SIMPLE!

This Stir-and-Pour Bread is a perfect compliment to the Simple Recipes I’ve shared lately and without a doubt, is wonderful to serve with most of our Simple Meals options!

Go get the Stir-and-Pour Bread Recipe!!

But first…how would you like a chance to win your very own Nutrimill? It’s worth $264 (but is on sale right now for just $219, so take note of that!). This appliance has saved us hundreds of dollars in the years we’ve had it (actually, probably  more like thousands at this point), so it is well worth the investment. Put it on your list. Ask for one for Christmas. And do me a favor. Buy it from Paula’s Bread.

Paula is a dear lady, running a small but thriving online business. I’ve been working with her for years and years. Her price is just as good (if not better) than her bigger competition, and what she offers in customer service can’t be matched. You will love working with Paula!

Let’s all give Paula a round of applause because she’s the one giving away a Nutrimill this week. Told you you’d love her!

So let’s review.

Stir and Pour Bread is amazingly simple and tasty (and did I mention that it’s so easy a 3-year old can make it?). This bread is a perfect supplement to many of our Simple Meals, and you definitely want to join all of us who are enjoying Simple Meals! Finally, Paula is giving away a Nutrimill. You will LOVE baking with freshly ground flour!

Enter to win a Nutrimill in the rafflecopter below! I’ll draw a random winner on Wednesday, November 9.

Low Sugar Treats ~ the Real Food Way — New eBook Giveaway!

Here’s something I’ve been working on for quite some time…

Low Sugar Treats cover5

It’s my newest recipe eBook, filled with 41 recipes that cut the sugar without cutting flavor and fun!!

You’ve seen many of these recipes here as I’ve been experimenting and enjoying the fact that ain’t no one need as much sugar as we see in most recipes. I’ve learned to cut sugar in everything from cake to cookies to ice cream. It’s super exciting that we can enjoy so many delicious treats and serve them to our families without feeling like we’re overloading them with oodles of sugar!

Finally all of these recipes (and a few more) have made it into an eBook to make our efforts even easier.

I’ve decided that the timing is perfect on this, seeing as now’s the time many of us are thinking about lunchboxes and after school snacks. So many of these treats are fantastic to offer our kids! They’ll get to enjoy a “dessert” and still be able to concentrate on school work!

Low Sugar Treats ~ the Real Food Way is in its final editing stage. We’ll be rolling it out next week, and hmmm…should we offer it at a discount? You’d probably like that, huh? Low sugar, low cost. Of course.

For today, we’re offering a sign up for a chance to win one of five free copies we’ll be giving away once the eBook is complete. Want to win a free book? Sign up here!
