Apple Pecan Salad

Posted by on Oct 10, 2013 in Nutritarian Recipes, Salads, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Salads in our house usually come together with whatever we have on hand and each persons salad looks a little different. Some salads are simply lettuce, some are lettuce and dressing and then some contain a few more textures and ingredients. With the kids we just keep building upon flavors and textures that they have become a custom to. This one is a favourite of nearly everyone in the house and goes well with either our Perfectly Pomegranate or Poppy Seed Dressing.

Perfectly Pomegranate Dressing

Posted by on Oct 10, 2013 in Dressings, Nutritarian Recipes | 0 comments

Ok so you know you’ve created a keeper when your child literally drinks a whole jar of dressing when your not looking right after she just finished 3 bowls of salad. No Joke! Let’s just say we’ve taken new measures to prevent such an incident from happening again, lol. The 3 bowls of salad previous however, were indeed big drops in my happy bucket that day. This no added oil dressing (aside from what’s in cashews of course) is again one of our favourites. If you’ve ever had an Apple Pecan Salad from Wendy’s with the Pomegranate dressing from there…then I think you will be pleasantly surprised with this...

Whole Grain Blender Pancakes

Posted by on Sep 18, 2013 in Breakfast Recipes, Nutritarian Recipes | 2 comments

My daughter has this thing for pancakes. It doesn’t matter what time of day, thats what she wants to eat. I took an old family favourite that my sister Deb shared a number of years back, changed a few things and created a new family favourite that I feel completely comfortable feeding to my little flapjack girl! Although this picture does not show it, adding blueberries or any other small fruit like black berries or raspberries is a welcomed addition straight into the mix. If you prefer it to be vegan you can substitute the egg with a flax or chia egg no problem. Simply mix 1 tablespoon of...

Apple Sauce

Posted by on Sep 18, 2013 in Nutritarian Recipes, Sauces & Dips | 0 comments

If you are looking for a yummy sweet dip idea for kids, I don’t think it gets any easier than making your own homemade apple sauce. It is so versatile that we use it in multiple ways. Our latest favourite is as a dip for whole grain blender pancakes instead of your conventional breakfast syrup. We try our best to make sure that when the kids are eating anything sweet, it is complimented by something high in fibre as well to help regulate the glucose (sugar). Apple sauce is great because it contains the sweetness kids love with all the fibre from the apples as well. Combined with our...

Thai Peanut Curry & Brown Rice Bear

Posted by on Sep 17, 2013 in Dinner Dishes, Nutritarian Recipes | 0 comments

I would have to say that Thai food is one of my very favourites and my little family enjoys it as well. I’m not sure if it’s just their personalities or if it’s because I ate a lot of spicy foods when pregnant and nursing that my kids like spicy, but they REALLY do. Even at two and three years old they were loving it. This dish has a little bit of spice but not so much that you can’t enjoy the wonderful & colourful flavours. If you really like spice you could add more curry but I would try it as is first. Obviously it’s not a recipe...

Chocolate Dip

Not only did we sort of fall into this recipe but we also fell in love with it rather quickly. I had purchased some fresh figs from the market and knew if I didn’t get them all used right away, they would be going bad soon. So we started to have fig everything…fig salads, fig smoothies and fig desserts. This is a delicious chocolate dip, pudding, spread or what ever you want to call it. All I know is that I hardly got it out of the blender before it was all gone once the kids discovered it. It is great for a fondue party: dipping fresh fruit like...
