I cook mostly vegan food in my home but my husbands only request is that I cook him fish at least once per week. So, I thought that was pretty fair. Tonight was the fish night. I fried up some catfish fillets along with a side of potatoes and broccoli. I knew my toddler wouldn’t eat any fish, which I was completely fine with because we are probably the two strictest vegans in the house.
But as I was cooking, my boys were running around and I heard *SPLAT* and I look down, and I see my toddler picking himself up off of the kitchen floor. He was already cranky and sleep and now running. I check him out and everything was okay except he had bit his tongue. Poor guy!
I hadn’t thought much of it until it was time to eat and when he tried the potatoes or broccoli, he gave a crazy look and asked for his “cup”. Then I realized that he wouldn’t be able to eat what I cooked because the seasoning was hurting his tongue, so I whipped him up a smoothie.
Here’s what I threw in there:
- Ground Walnut (Optional)
I just happened to have some ground walnut from yesterday’s Veggie Bowls. Yesterday, I ground them up and dusted them over our food and I had some leftovers in my Bullet container so I just used all of the leftovers in this smoothie.
My tot loved it! Drank it all up and probably had a more nutritional dinner than we did.
- 1/2 Cup Spinach
- 1/4 Cup Watercress
- 1/2 Banana
- 2-3 Strawberries
- 1/4 Avocado
- Ice (use ice if fruit is not frozen)
- Wash spinach, watercress and strawberries.
- Add a splash of water.
- Combine all ingredients up and blend until smooth. Depending on the consistency, add a little more water to thin it out.
