I used to not care about health and nutrition at all. Okay, maybe that is not true, but I only had a vague concept of what was healthy. And, on top of that, having picky eaters in the house, sometimes you just are trying to get the kids fed.
Then, a few years ago, I started making some changes (to a more paleo, natural food lifestyle). Almost immediately I realized mac and cheese, spaghetti o’s, and corn dogs were not giving the kids the nutrition they needed. I am sure I knew this already, but like I said, when you are busy and have picky eaters, it can be a battle just getting them to eat.
The next few months weren’t so fun. Tears, going to bed early, half eaten meals. As someone who does not like cooking in the first place, this was almost enough to derail the whole “kids should eat healthy” plan I had created. I saw all of these blogs where these amazing super moms could get their kids to eat kale and all kinds of healthy stuff, and my kids (well, one of them ha) fought me every step of the way…even the “hidden” veggies were detectable somehow.
I finally found this recipe, and it made me think maybe I am not crazy or doomed. 🙂 It is easy, paleo, and the whole family likes it (for now, at least, ha). Plus, I quadruple the mix and store it in the refrigerator in an air-tight canister. We have it about every two weeks and it is super easy to make with the mix already ready. If you freeze some chicken tenders, then you have a nutritious, paleo, kid-friendly meal ready to go at a moment’s notice.
