The sun is shining today and after the last few hellish weeks, we needed to get outside. (post coming soon about the last few weeks). It was a perfect day for a little picnic and while little miss baby pants snoozed inside, the boys and I spread out a blanket and ate in the yard.
We veered off course for paleo eating when I was pregnant and have been slowly getting back on track. The boys are grumbling and complaining a bit about the lack of grain, mainly in the form of crackers and cookies, but they’re adjusting pretty well. I notice something when we follow a paleo eating plan. My kids eat better, gain weight, and have better behavior.
So what does one feed kids on a paleo diet? This was their picnic lunch today :
- Almond Butter mixed with coconut oil and a bit of honey, served on apple rings.
- Sliced green peppers
- avocado chunks
- coconut chips from Trader Joes (not perfectly paleo, since there is a bit of cane sugar)
And guess what, they loved it! I normally have a lot more protein in their meals, but I seriously need to hit up the grocery store, so I made due with what we had in the fridge. Oh and did you notice, poor Mr. B Bear (Who is nearly 6 by the way!) has a big ole’ goose egg on his forehead! Poor kid ran right into a fence post at school today. He got to visit the nurses office and everything.
