What this teacher is accomplishing is remarkable! Not only is his class growing the food for their own school cafeteria, they are altruistically feeding the homeless and the elderly. His class attendance has gone from 43% to 90%! THAT IS A BIG DEAL! The future is bright.
Those of us with toddlers know that pasta is often a go-to dinner and sadly a staple for many, but this sweet little recipe may take some of the guilt out of all of the empty carbs it is served on 🙂 I love that the ladies at Super Healthy Kids recommend soba noodles made from buckwheat which, despite it’s name, is actually not related to wheat at all. Buckwheat is not even a grain, it is a pseudo-cereal super seed (say that 10 times fast) and not only is it gluten-free, it is very high in manganese and has loads of fiber.
Kudos to anyone who can get their kiddos to eat vegetable noodles – a sauce like this might just do the trick!
My Poor little guy is literally scratching off the bites at night and leaving gaping wounds 😦
I found a few simple and other not so simple recipes on this site, whichever your preference, this link has lots to choose from.
Fresh is always best, but in our house kale is one of those things that lives rent-free in the fridge and expires before it is used; I find it time consuming to wash and cut, but with this alternative I only have to do it once. These cubes make it really easy to add nutrient rich kale to shakes, sauces, smoothie drops, soups – you name it!
