Happy Thursday Shinny!
And here's to your flounder & spinach!
One fun idea that kids may enjoy, is a romaine "wrap."
It's fun to make and it crunches and is "taco-esque" in ways, messy, child-like, delicious, and still very healthful too!
One lays out the leaves of a big romaine lettuce head on the table, as if each leaf is a sheet of paper.
Then in a bowl, one can take a can of wild salmon (there are healthful brands without added sodium) and in a bowl mix that with mashed avocado, or Dijon mustard, or olive oil and a little sea salt. All healthy and fabulous!
Then chop up some red pepper on the side, and place the bowl and sliced peppers on the table and let everyone scoop servings into leaves, and roll them up and eat, crunch, and enjoy, as if a wrap!
Sometimes having mustard on the table as a dipping sauce, or a good salsa without sugar added etc., is fun too.
THEN, once they've tried that, you can take a fresh piece of wild salmon, put it on your smoker to cook it, and then slice it up in a bowl and mix it with your avocado or whatever you wish, (the same way as before), and have the freshly made version!
Getting them to "help make" each version is half the appreciation and fun, and then they seem to have some exciting pride about eating what THEY made etc.
(Or I have seen kids - and adults - just downright love this simple and healthful dish and ritual anyway).
And so, if that helps any, then wonderful!
If not, then just ignore me! Smiles.
I simply get excited, and enthused, (about exotic, healthful, and minimalistically arranged food), and therefore come from a well intended place!
OK, happy fabulous Thursday!!!!!! Great to see your post!!!!!!! Cheers!!!!!!!! - Leah
