Teehee!!!!!!!!!!!! I have noticed that she likes the spinach sauce I make for her, for her sandwiches and wraps. Also the enchilada sauce! Since she doesn't like to eat nuts or seeds, I just add seeds or nuts into these herb sauces or tomato sauce. I been worrying so much about her and her fat intake. Also I worry so much about her not eating enough greens, she rather eats fruits. But I have nailed it with the spinach sauce and today she ate a nice sprouted sandwich of spinach sauce w/ mashed avocados and she didn't even blink and ate it all. I can believe it, my daughter is coming around....
p.s. happy proud mama! :D :p

That's great!!! Will she drink green juice or green smoothies if you add fruit to them? That might be another way to get the greens in.

THAT"S a big problem! :( I try today to get her to drink a smoothie but she won't do it. She rather get Kefir, she won't drink the ones I make even if they are only fruit. Today I tried to get her to drink only a banana smoothie, I even asked her to help me out. When I gave it to her, she says: "No mami that's for YOU!" aurgh!!!!!!!!! lol and how funny because she loves banana. I was thinking, maybe if I just incorporate greens later in her smoothie... but NOPE, she is just reluctant! :( The only green she will eat is the spinach sauce. She won't eat salads either. Last night I got her to eat a wrap with some spinach sauce then I put in there some avocado and lettuce, she barely noticed it, but was barely chugging them down. oh well... baby steps...
thanks so much Brianna! :)

Well, the spinach sauce is a good start! Maybe you could incorperate other greens into the spinach sauce, like make it with 3/4 spinach and 1/4 of another green like kale or collards, or bok choy or Swiss chard. That way, she could get some more variety. Also, sunflower sprouts are yummy and a lot of kids like them, even picky kids.
