Hello! Wow – 25 hits in one day! I have not had that in a long time!
So – in the last post – I talked about what we have for dinner.
I thought in the next few days – I would share what we do for breakfast, lunch and dessert. Today, it is snacks.
I feel like the kids are constantly snacking. I try to get them to fill up on nutrient rich foods.
Here are what we eat most days:
Annie’s bunny grahams
Honey wheat pretzels
I am very picky about what I serve my kids. I know it and they are picky about what they choose to eat. Seriously, do you know what GMO’s are? Do some research – it is kind of freaky to learn that they are in most traditional kid snacks.
Then, you might ask – how are MY kids going to make the transition? Well, with anything – start slow. Take away those Goldfish crackers – I know they say they are all natural but NOPE! Replace with Annie’s Bunny Grahams. So much yummier and healthier.
Today – I have my dehydrator going. I love that thing. Most weeks it is in use! Today, I am making dried pineapple and homemade fruit leather. Am I a domestic goddess? NOPE. I thrive on simplicity!
Any fruit puree (throw thawed frozen fruit in the blender)
Same parts applesauce. (no sugar added)
(Example – 6 cups to 6 cups is what I used)
Mix and throw in the dehydrator. Sits for 12 hours.
Big can of pineapple pieces (bought at Costco for $4.50)
Drain (save liquid if you want homemade jerky marinade or use for fried rice chicken marinade)
Put on dehydrator trays!
Let sit for 12 hours.
Uses about $1 for electricity.
