Baby steps

One of the first steps I took years ago was to eliminate the use of red meat.  My husband at first had a problem with eating ground turkey instead of beef but in a matter of months (or maybe it was more like a year :) he actually preferred the taste of the ground turkey.  Eating enough vegetables has always been a challenge but by offering different vegetables and dipping sauces my kids slowly began eating some vegetables.  They are still not super veggie eaters but making progress.  Since the new year began I have been making them green smoothies everyday.  They don't taste like vegetables and my kids really like them.  I feel good knowing that they got some green vegetable goodness into their little bodies.  Stay tuned for some of our favorite green smoothie recipes.
