Recipe for Eating a light dinner your kids will love!

My kids are big fans of a "light dinner".  We love doing this after eating a late lunch or if we get home late from being out and the kids need something to eat before bed.  Try muffins and smoothies.

Yogurt, Date, and Oat Muffin Recipe

1 cup vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup agave nectar or honey or raw organic sugar
2 eggs
1/3 cup sunflower oil
mix well
1 T flax seed meal
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup chopped dates (nice to soften in hot water first)
1 cup spelt flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon

Mix for 2 min.

Spray muffin tins and fill 3/4 full.
 Bake at 350 for 12-15 min

Try this "Hulk Juice" smoothie with it.

2 quarts grape juice
1/2 cup pineapple
1 banana (frozen or fresh)
5 frozen apricots (or canned)
5 kale leaves
3 comfrey leaves or comfrey leaf powder
3 red chard leaves
1 tsp spirulina
large handful of spinach leaves
handful of frozen blueberries

 Blend thoroughly.  Serve with a straw.

This light dinner is full of vitamins and minerals.  The muffins are a perfect fiber source along with Omega Fatty Acids.  The hulk juice is high in antioxidants, magnesium, calcium, vita C, B vitamins, iron, protein, and more.

Muffins are my go-to-food.  If I'm craving a treat or if we need something light to eat, muffins are perfect.
