I found a great cookbook called The Fresh 20. I’m always looking for new ways to serve healthier fare and chicken, Mexican and pasta are big winners in our house, but eating the same foods week after week gets old fast. Melissa Lanz serves up some fabulous looking dishes made simply that I think even the pickiest kids will love. And her pictures are gorgeous.
Throughout the book she interviews various families and surveys them on their family food culture. I loved the idea right away and thought I would share our family food culture.
Our Family Food Culture
Special or Restricted diet: None
Who Cooks Most Meals: My husband is the real chef, but I cook most meals
Favorite Family Meal: anything Mexican
Least Favorite Family Meal: Salmon
Strict Rule: No Soda
Indulgence: Homemade cookies and banana bread
Best Advice For Health: Treat yourself to everything, just use moderation. Eat REAL food!
Hardest Treat To Give Up: Biscoff Spread and Nutella straight from the jar
On The No-Eat List: Cucumbers and persimmons
Think about your own food culture and what it says about your family. Sit down tonight with the kids, discuss the questions and you just might learn something about each other. If nothing else, it gets everyone talking about food. What could be better than that?
