I’ve been leaning towards eating healthier for a while now, not everyone is completely on board and when that happens you know how hard that can be. It doesn’t matter if it is spouse, friends/co-workers or your kids. When there is resistance it is hard to fight and stay on track. My goal right now is to start with the young ones. Why? My girls already love to eat healthy, they just tend to eat sweets when allowed. I found a new snack idea that the kids love and I feel great about. Rich in veggies too……They are….. Garden Lites Muffins!
I end up snacking during the day and so does Nicoli. Instead of giving him some junk I can now give him a chocolate muffin without guilt. Why? Simply because Garden Lites have mixed up veggies into their muffins. We got two different ones to try out: Chocolate Muffins (made with fresh zucchimi & carrots) and Banana Chocolate Chip muffins (made with fresh zucchini and bananas). Nicoli will never know the difference. Truth is as long as I start him early he will always love zucchini muffins/cupcakes. Isabella once tried them at a Farmer’s Market and has loved them since.
