It Works and is SOOOOO Yummy!!



Oh my gosh has it ever been a long time since I last posted on here! Time sure does fly!
Anyway, a few weeks ago I saw Jessica Seinfeld on Oprah talking about her book "Deceptively Delicious". I thought it was such a great idea so I ran out and bought a copy of it! With the craziness of my life I didn't use it even once until this week and let me tell you how great it is! The other night I made Meatloaf (for the record I'm not a meatloaf fan) with mashed potatoes and it was SOOOO good. The Meatloaf had pureed carrots in it and the potatoes had pureed cauliflour. My kids chowed and had no idea I had snuck Vegi's into their meal. My older two do pretty well with eating fruit and vegis but my younger two, especially me five year old, are BRUTAL!! It was so great to see them eating everything I served them and say how good it was.
Tonight I made Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs with pureed pinapple and sweet potates in them. Once again the kids had NO IDEA there was healthy stuff in their food and it tasted fabulous!
So if you have children who give you a hard time with eating the healthy stuff, try this, you'll love it!

PS-there is another book out there that is VERY similar to Jessica's book. Apparently hers was published first and they even tried to get Oprah to do a show about it. Of course because the author wasn't a celebrity, Oprah said no... anyway, you can imagine the issues about that! Anyway, either book is great and helps kids eat healthier!

Oh I've been wondering about this book since you showed it to me. How many dollars? I could use some new healthy ideas!

I've been wanting to get that book, too! Maybe Santa will bring it...

p.s. Just a little name dropping, the second book (by Missy Lapine) is written by my mom's sister-in-law-in-law (if that makes sense).

i bought it a while back and love the idea...i made a whole bunch of puree's and have yet to try a recipe...maybe the whole thing about remodeling my kitchen has something to do with it!
