My kids love pasta with meat sauce. It’s one of the few meals I make that I know they will eat, even if they’ve had a snack five minutes before dinner (which I never, ever allow because that would be foolish…. insert guilty cough). So when Hodgson Mill sent me an awesome care package after […]
#ONENEWFOOD: Quick Vanilla Ice Cream
Before I get into our #ONENEWFOOD of the week, I have to tell you this: The other night Annelise, my pickiest eater, willingly tried broccoli, rice, and chicken. That was HUGE for her. I absolutely attribute it to #ONENEWFOOD. Insisting that the kids try new things on a regular, consistant basis is paying off. Please […]
I love soup. Chicken noodle, cream of broccoli, even tomato (if I have a grilled cheese to go with it!). There’s just something comforting about it, especially as the days grow cooler. My kids, however, don’t share this sentiment with me. I don’t know how it started, but for some reason, every time I make […]
#ONENEWFOOD: Homemade Oatmeal
Before I get into our one new food of the week, I want to take a moment to recognize Jennifer Tyler Lee. Kristen and I were introduced to her and her 52 New Foods Challenge this week and were surprised when we saw how similar it is to what we’ve been doing. She has a […]

After last week’s #ONENEWFOOD success with the whole wheat flour, I decided to stay on the same track, but up my game. Enter: Flaxseed Honestly, I knew nothing about flaxseed, but I saw it on the shelf at Walmart and thought it must be healthy because of all the other things around it (great way […]
#ONENEWFOOD: Whole Wheat Flour
Last week Kristen and I both had mixed results with our #ONENEWFOODs. She tried snow peas and I tried both kale chips and raspberries. The snow peas and the kale chips did not fare well. The raspberries had mixed success. This week I needed a win, so I went back to basics. I wouldn’t exactly […]
Kristen and I are so excited by the response we got last week regarding #ONENEWFOOD. A lot of you expressed interest in joining us and we say “The more the merrier!” Why? Because: Everyone who does this is making a commitment to their family’s health and that is AWESOME! The more people who do it, […]

#ONENEWFOOD: Teaching Kids to Try New and Healthier Foods
You’ve heard me sing my Picky Eater Blues before, but in case you forgot the lyrics, here’s the chorus: My kids don’t want to eat anything except pizza, nuggets, pasta, and fruit (hey, it’s not all bad!). In fact, nine times out of ten, Annelise will not eat one bite of dinner. I put it […]
