It wasn’t until I hit my 30s (and when I had my babies) did I really start to care about the medicinal properties of food. How do I pack the most nutrients into every meal, and still make it enjoyable for all?
Today we hit the jackpot. Yes, it took time and effort (and a few extra dishes), but it’s the best feeling to know they had a healthy snack. A fun combination of highly nutritious veggies and fruit blended into a sweet and tangy smoothie. We lovingly named this concoction, Bunny Smoothie.
Blood Orange, Pineapple, Carrot, Ginger, Turmeric and Ice.
Grandma DiDi began by juicing the carrot, ginger and turmeric.
Then we added the pineapple, orange and ice to the blender.
Our kitchen has another chef these days. She can’t really cook, but she likes to observe. We place her in her highchair to keep her contained and give her pieces of whatever we are cooking.
The cub added the carrot, ginger and turmeric juice to the blender.
and Grandma DiDi blended it up! Look at that vibrant color!
A tasty and nutritious treat for both cubs in their new bunny cups. Happy Easter!
