Never Trick the Kids to Eat Healthy Again + Sauce Recipes


⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

No matter how much I expose my daughters to exotic and healthy foods, they still have their own tastes and as much as they love fruits and veggies it can be a fight that I simply don’t have the patience for after a long day. Several months ago John decided (for many reasons) to go back to vegetarianism. Now, I love meat and as someone who has to literally eat every 2-3 hours or I get lightheaded, I need substance. I would love to be able to eat vegan/vegetarian but I find I am starving every hour if I don’t eat something filling and truth be told, I’m not a huge fan of beans.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

John brought home “chicken” nuggets from the grocery store a few months ago and the kids devoured them. Filippa had no idea she had just eaten vegetarian and Leni was ecstatic that something healthy tasted amazing. My friends at Quorn make the most baller vegetarian meat products. (I know I just said ‘baller’ — because they are that good, I couldn’t think of a better word.) If you’re someone who is making the transition from carnivore to veggie these have a realistic meat texture to them that trick even the pickiest eaters. 

As a trainer and health-conscious individual I find this convenient meat substitute to be a great source of filling nutrition. And as a mom I love that the products are frozen which makes them easy to prepare in the oven, and non-GMO so I don’t have to worry about what I’m feeding my children. 

I’ve included some sauce recipes below, “sophisticated” enough for the foodie and irresistible enough for the kiddos.

I hope you guys appreciate my expert recipes. Sarcasm, ya’ll. I rarely measure anything and really have to pay attention when I want to share something with you, friends. I hope you enjoy these super easy sauce recipes and make Quorn an addition to your grocery list. Whether you’re vegetarian or not, they are a better option than a lot of frozen foods out there.

Just ask Little Boo.
