Just a few days left in our 31 Days of Real Food Reality series! Hopefully, reading the series has been an encouragement to you. Or at least maybe you’ve been convinced to eat real butter. :)
Today’s Real Food Reality Tip: Have fun playing with recipes, making them work for your family’s real food tastes and needs!
For instance, our family has fallen in love with this Cheeseburger Soup recipe. I have been making it once a week for the past few weeks. To keep life exciting (because clearly, not much exists in life that is more exciting than soup in a bowl) – sometimes I substitute the potatoes in the recipe with whole wheat or brown rice pasta. It is delicious this way! Plus, dumping in noodles saves me a few extra minutes if I don’t want to take the time to prepare potatoes.
I’ve also shared that sometimes I make our Raspberry Oatmeal Bars with different varieties of jelly. It’s fun to take basic, favorite recipes and play with them to add variety without adding extra work!
Here’s our menu plan for this week. I may or may not be tweaking some of these recipes to keep life interesting. :)
Do you like playing with recipes or do you prefer to follow a recipe precisely?
