Many of you who follow me on Instagram know that I love posting up quick and easy meals that I prepare for my family, and most especially my son. We’ve always been a foodie family and love snapping pics of our plates. Many of you also know that I have a little picky eater on my hands so it’s a must that I frequently cook the same meals on rotation.
Lately, these are Nathan’s favorites:
Breakfast: Steel-cut oats mixed with cacao nibs, flax seeds, and agave syrup. Bananas & clementines are his usual fruits of choice.
Lunch: Baked lemon pepper sole with brown rice mixed with quinoa. Baked yellow squash & brussels sprouts on the side. This meal is ready in less than 20 minutes!
Dinner: Deconstructed ground turkey tacos. Nathan was served with brown rice topped with steamed spinach (added a little TJ’s 21 seasoning salute on top) & sliced avocados.
Snack: Our go-to snack! Homemade “raw energy balls” & clementines. The energy balls were made with oats, dates, flax seeds, cacao nibs, shredded coconut, and vanilla extract. NO sugar-added!
See those cute divided plates above?? They’re from Re-Play Recycled! Our current household obsession! I simply love them, and Nathan is excited to eat when he sees his plate!
