Te-Man Chose Carrots over Crackers!

Say WHAT?!  That boy is the biggest carboholic I have ever seen.  Seriously, he would live off of bread and fruit with the occasional egg thrown in there.   I worry about it constantly.  So, I endlessly brainstrorm and search for new ways to get him to eat vegetables, meat, milk, and just to get him to drink enough water during the day.

Yesterday morning I made him a smoothie with milk, kale, pineapple, and frozen berries.  He drank way more of it than I thought he was going to.  YAY!

But the real success came later in the day when I made these carrot coins  from Weelicious.  He actually chose them instead of a cracker and they were in the same container!!!  I must agree, they are quite tasty and will be seen in the Land of Honey's kitchen very soon.

Carrot Coins
What's In It:
2 c sliced carrots (4-6 carrots)
1/4 t paprika
1/4 t salt
1 t oil

What To Do With It:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Slice the carrots about 1/4-1/2" thick.  I went closer to the 1/2" size.  Toss the carrots with the oil and spices.  Spread on a baking sheet.  Bake for 30 min.  Mine only took 15 or so, so keep an eye on them!

Watch them's magic!

  1. Glad to hear he liked the carrots. They look scrumptious.
