It’s been said that children don’t like their vegetables and that it’s difficult to get kids to eat healthy foods. In reality, kids and adults alike would love eating fresh, nourishing foods as long as they are prepared correctly and look appealing. While not every child is going to go for eating green beans from a can, many may consume fresh, whole foods–vegetables included–if they are incorporated into a chili, vegan burger patty, or spaghetti sauce. If you’re searching for vegetarian recipes that your kids will love, keep reading.
10 Vegetarian Recipes Kids Love
Nutritious recipes kids love can be hard to find, but it’s not impossible. To raise a healthy eater, you want to get your child involved in the cooking process. Most of these recipes below can be prepared with your child’s help. Here are 10 vegetarian recipes kids love.
1. Black Bean Burger
A burger is the quintessential American food that most people can’t pass up. Just because you and your family are vegetarian doesn’t mean you also can’t enjoy burger night. This recipe for black bean burgers is not only delicious, it’s also high in vegetarian protein and fiber, two qualities that are seriously lacking in the meat department. Use a gluten-free bun or lettuce wraps to eat.
2. Carrot Fries
3. Spaghetti Squash with Marinara Sauce
Kids will love helping you open a spaghetti squash and peel out the spaghetti-like strings. This squash can replace your typical spaghetti noodles. Try this recipe for homemade spaghetti squash with a simple marinara.
4. Chickpea Nibbles
5. Winter Veggie Soup
A warm soup during the winter months is a staple, but you should look into deleting the meat and upping the vegetable quantity. This recipe for veggie soup is enjoyed by kids and provides them with the essential vitamins and other nutrients necessary for proper growth.
6. Quinoa Chili
Chili is another winter favorite and is loved by kids, so definitely include this quinoa chili recipe in your meal plan sometime this week. Quinoa is a perfect vegetarian replacement for meat in this recipe, because this healthy food provides a complete protein.
7. Almond Granola
Looking for a delicious and nutritious breakfast or snack food? Granola is a perfect option! Most granola bought in the store is full of sugar and other hard-to-pronounce ingredients. But, this recipe lets you use your own natural sweeteners and provides nourishing fats and proteins from the addition of healthy nuts. Let your child experiment with this recipe, giving them a number of different dried fruit, nuts, and grain options.
8. Peanut Butter Stir Fry
Peanut butter in savory food may sound off putting for some, but some kids surprisingly enjoy the nutty flavor in their food. Stir fries are fun to make, so let your child help in the preparation process for this recipe.
9. Summer Fruit Salad
A fruit salad that is as delicious as it is beautiful is always welcome. Fruit not only provides a high concentration of essential vitamins (like vitamin C), it also provides a natural sweetness that isn’t addictive.
10. Vegan Chocolate-Chunk Cookies
These vegan chocolate chunk cookies are fun to make and even more fun to eat! Your kids will enjoy helping out with this recipe. With only 5 ingredients, what’s not to love? You can also experiment with different sweeteners and different types of dark chocolate for these cookies.
You can also try to “sneak” a few vegetables into your casseroles, sauces, and soups by blending cooked or raw green vegetables into the mix. This takes a bit of experimenting, but it’s definitely worth it when it comes to the health of your children. Most importantly, it may be best to start a child off early in the appreciation of whole, fresh foods, and getting them involved in the preparation process. This will facilitate a life-long respect and love for healthy foods that will surely benefit their health.

Do You Know Your Body’s Most Important Weight Loss Secret?
By J. Davis III
Tags: HEALING | HEALTHY FATS | REMEDIES
Recently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.
Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.
Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.
Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.

Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.
You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.
Here’s how it works...
“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”
“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”
Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.
Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.
“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…
What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?
Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”
So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.
Watch Liz’ free presentation. It’s packed with revolutionary weight loss information—information that works. Because it’s based on how nature works.
