I have a love hate relationship with Pinterest. I love to find new recipes to try, but when they don't work out I find myself irritated and frustrated that my creation doesn't taste or look like the gorgeous pictures represented. This week I have tried several new healthy recipes. They have been a hit! The week prior we were on vacation and I tried lemon muddy buddies that was a terrible soggy flop. Here are the healthy hits. As a bonus they are all dairy, gluten and refined-sugar free!
Black Bean Hummus
We made this for lunch today and my children asked if we could have it again tomorrow. Three out of the four loved it and it's super good for them. That makes me happy. We spread the hummus on Food Should Taste Good Brown Rice crackers and topped them with avocado and tomato. On the side there were cut up vegetables that tasted equally as good in the hummus.
Quinoa and Kale Winter Salad
This was what we ate for lunch this week-end. I didn't have cranberries so we just used raisins and I did not use orange oil in the dressing. The kids didn't like this as well, but my husband and I liked it.
Chocolate Banana Breakfast Quinoa
Again 3 of the 4 children loved this recipe. I can't help but wonder if they have a conspiracy against me to never all like the same thing?
