#1 Goji berries
You can just throw a handful in stews and soups. The children won’t even notice it but it adds a good amount of Vitamin C into the broth. It has been used in Chinese receipes for hundreds of years.
Usually, I mash 50% of cauliflower with 50% of potato – a great way to disguise the cauliflower. This can be thrown on top of a shepherds’ pie or just served with oven baked organic salmon or chicken.
#3 Chia Seeds
One of the latest (although Chia seeds have an ancient history) supercharged foods that is beneficial for the body and brain. It is a great source of magnesium, calcium, phosphrous and many other nutrients. I throw them into the children’s home made pesto sauce, or sprinkle it onto salads.
The only way I can get the children to eat chickpeas is to make homemade hummus by blending it with lemon, garlic, tahini and olive oil. Or if I am brave I blend it into their home made squash or carrot soup.
#5 Coconut oil
Most of my children’s food with the exception of pasta is cooked with coconut oil. It is a much healthier option with great health benefits for every part of the body. My husband even takes a tablespoon of coconut oil as part of his morning ritual every day.
