Making healthy food novel encourages children to achieve an adequate nutrient intake as well as energy intake. Healthy eating need not be boring, bland or difficult to achieve. This light family breakfast is a great way to start off a weekend day with eating socials on the forecast.
Cooking at home is an easy way to maintain control of your dietary intake and is often good for the budget too. Some things might seem more convenient to buy but hummus is easy to make and the yield for cost is worthwhile. The bonus is that homemade hummus can be easily converted into a salad dressing by increasing the liquid ingredients or a delicious pasta sauce when added to a can of diced tomatoes. Making your own hummus also means that you can flavour it as you wish. Additions of fresh basil, extra paprika, roasted red pepper or cooked red lentils make this easy to make recipe both versatile and entertaining worthy.
Date paste is my latest and greatest Pinterest success! Already a fan of dates, I did not need much convincing to give this recipe a go. Incredibly easy to make, date paste makes for a tasty sugar substitute. While it does have an energy value due to the natural carbohydrate content of dates, it is not nutrient empty and very little paste is required for the reward of its incredible flavour contribution.
