Eat your vegetables! Have some fruit! How many times did you hear that growing up?
And for those of you with little ones, how many times do you say that each day?
I have two very different eaters here at my house. My son is our fruit and vegetable lover – he is just as happy eating a whole watermelon or a bowl of edamame as he is a burger. My daughter, well, it’s a little more challenging. Fruit is her preference, with a slant towards the tropical. But when it comes time to eat her veggies, it requires lots of persuasion.
As you know, we strongly emphasize healthy eating. There are always fresh fruits and veggies packed in lunches, salads at dinner, and fruit bowls on the kitchen table. One walk through the kitchen, and I hope that you’ll always be tempted by a bowl of berries or slices of melon. When everything is already rinsed, sliced, and within reach, it’s easier to eat healthy.
And then there’s the smoothies.
Daily Smoothie Ritual
Our smoothie ritual started when our daughter was a toddler when we were living in LA. Back then, my husband trained on his road bike for hours, hugging the coast and climbing the hills in Malibu and back. When he would return, he needed something to replenish after his ride, and we started making smoothies full of fruit, soy milk, and yogurt. My daughter would lap them up, as did my son when he came along a few years later. To this day, the kids look forward to a smoothie after school, and I am always happy to make one, knowing they will drink extra servings of fruit.
Mango Coconut Smoothie
I don’t stop there. I try to incorporate fresh fruits or vegetables in lots of dishes, as you know by now. Zucchini finds its way into becoming noodles, bread, or even cupcakes. Bananas find their way into muffins of all varieties. Beautiful salads are a great way to enjoy variety with each bite.
With ultra-filtered water from the first ever hands-free dispenser, and micro-climate controls powered by TwinChill technology, the new GE French Door Refrigerator is engineered to push the limits of fresh.
