This week we literally went rogue and tried One New Food a day! We had gluten free waffles, gluten free pancakes, pot roast (ick!), plantain chips (double ick!), and then this whole wheat couscous sent to us by Hodgson Mill.
So I took a little video of us trying this delicious whole grain during dinner, check out our adventures in mealtimes starring whole wheat couscous! Oh and our girls…
Ironically edamame was a fan favorite…who knew? We will definitely be adding that to the snack rotation this week!
ONE NEW FOOD FEATURE OF THE WEEK
Each week Lauren from Oh Honestly and I choose our favorite #OneNewFood, and this week I loved what Traci Cummings from Your Wellness Journey was cooking up! Butternut Squash soup is a favorite of mine…adding that to the list.
Eating with the seasons is so good for your body! Eating seasonal helps to support our bodies natural cleansing and healing abilities. Now that it’s fall move to the warmer autumn foods! We are enjoying butternut squash soup for Jaylen’s #onenewfood challenge. It’s a fantastic food for your heart, immune system & it regulates your blood sugar. #yourwellnessjourney #healthymama #healthykid

haha.. I’m sorry but Lila cracked me up. “I need some salt.” Scarlet loves to spit food in a napkin or in the garbage can. And Cassidy is all, “Just swallow it!!”
I almost didn’t post it…but too good not to share right? kids…sigh.
Your video is super cute! My kids are not big fans of couscous, but this week I am planning on springing a new food on them. I’ll share with you how it goes. Fingers crossed.
HAHAHAHAHAHAH your oldest and the couscous – dying. So funny, that’s what my youngest would do. Immediate reactions, always really huge reactions, and often very messy reactions haha! Loved your video!
Oh my goodness I LOVE your video!!! Your girls are so cute!
That video is pure awesomeness! Seriously! Those girls crack me up!
