~ Food Has Power ~
The Lara bars have inspired me. I have a gorp mix which I take whenever we leave the house - instant portable nutrition. So, I finally made the Lara bars with dates (remember to remove the seeds, they are hard on your food processor. ask me how I know...) and tossed in my gorp mix. OH MY!! fabulous!! delicious!! Amazing!
There was some old Chinese theory of food that we should eat a variety of 31 different foods every day.
So, I counted and there were 15 different foods in my Lara bar! I figure, if I can make a couple of different versions of Lara bars with 10 foods each, we could have a HUGE variety of nutrients very conveniently.
I could do this with smoothies and meatloaf and spaghetti sauce and bone broth and ??? What other foods are easy to combine/hide many different foods?
Any favorite combo/recipes where we can Take Ten Foods and make a delicious treat. We already make cookies with spinach and have started adding spinach to burritos. But, a big combo of grated veggies could be added to many foods. I know I toss in many veggies and meats into my bone broth and I could add veggies and organ meats to my meatloaf or spaghetti sauce...
Other "Deceptively Delicious" ideas?? (I haven't seen the book yet, but it sounds resourceful!)
