Otis Food, Recipes & Healthy Kids
Simple Otis Cucumbers
4 cucumbers peeled and sliced (even the youngest kids love peeling these!)
regular vinegar, 1 cup
1 tablespoon garlic salt
1 tablespoon Stevia (or 2 table sugar)
1 sliced red onion.
Mix together, put in tupperware and turn upside down so all the pieces can "pickle" our kids eat like chips! I leave on the counter and they walk by and nibble. Stays good even in heat because of the vinegar so a great picnic option.
Sheff put up pull up bars in most door ways. If Kids act up they need to do pull ups until they are spent. This payed off when they do the physical fitness tests yearly:)
Chopped Kale Salad
1 head of kale, take off the stems, chop and microwave for 1 min to soften
add 1/2 cup of dried cranberries
Mix vinegar and Stevia to taste, about 1/2 cup and 1 teaspoon
Chop 1/4 red onion finely toss wit kale, dressing and cranberries.
Add crumbled feta when served. Also good with chopped fresh cucumber or other veggies and in a pinch a greek vinaigrette is really good as well.
|Lil Mark & Nate, we have treats too! I just find balancing sugar with fiber and protein helps behavior and energy for all the kids and PARENTS|
Apple Pie Apples
6 apples sliced
Ground cinnamon, 1 tablespoon
Sugar, 1 tablespoon
Fresh lemon juice 1 tablespoon.
Toss and leave out for kids. Lemon stops from browning and the apples really taste like a treat!
