Eat Your Green Veggies Family Fun Friday

Eat Your Green Veggies Family Fun Friday

June 26, 2014Danita

Hi! Welcome to another addition of Family Fun Friday!



 Here we are at the end of June already!  How can it be?  

I don’t know about you but we’ve had a fun summer so far even though our schedule has been turned upside down.  We don’t mind that so much but because of all the extra activities we haven’t been eating too “healthy”.  That’s why I wanted to encourage you (and myself) to Eat Your Green Veggies this week on Family Fun Friday. 

Sometimes it’s hard to get our children to eat well but hopefully, this week’s features will inspire you to make some yummy green veggies that your kids will eat!

Eat Your Green Veggies Family Fun Friday…

 #1 – Luv a Bargain’s Balsamic Broccoli Slaw is a great low cal, side dish but add some grilled chicken and you’ve got yourself a meal!

#2 – A Dash of Sanity’s Blueberry Kale Breakfast Smoothie a.k.a. Smurf Smoothie.  What a fun way to get our kids to eat something healthy!  

#3 – Luv a Bargain’s Asparagus Quiche.  Admittedly, this may be a little more appealing to grown-ups.  It’s packed with healthy stuff and sounds perfect for breakfast or brunch.  I also love that she (like me) doesn’t make her own pie crusts!

#4 & #5 – Come from Pure Grace Farms.  First, she tells us How to FREEZE Broccoli!  This may be my favorite post.  I love broccoli but it gets so expensive at times.  I’ve never tried to freeze it but I’m about to!  Then she gives us a wonderful Spicy Stir Fried Broccoli and Peanut Sauce recipe.  

#6 – One Creative Mommy’s 20 Super Salads…Perfect for a Summer Meal.  Salads really are the perfect summer meal!  Lots of fresh veggies available and no cooking required.  What’s not to love about that?

Off to see what our other hosts chose…

    Thanks for another great linky. I’m afraid I may have goofed. I didn’t realize that the posts were supposed to be green veggies 🙁 I thought that was a feature of one of the hostesses. Sorry!! 🙁

      No you were right! I did feature green veggies, you can link anything. It doesn’t even have to be a recipe. Thanks for stopping by!
