The Real Food for Hungry Teens eBook provides delicious, nutrient-dense recipes specifically designed for active, growing teenagers, and which aims to keep them coming back for more.
If you are a health conscious parent, you might be struggling with your teen’s apparent obsession with the school canteen and the fast food options of the local take-away. It’s quick, it’s easy, and it’s a health trap. So, by providing them with tasty meals at home, you can offset all the junk they inevitably have on the run in the outside world, while providing them the tools to make better food choices even when they are eating out. With any luck you might even catch them whipping up a few of these recipes at home by themselves!
My food-loving son helped create the menu and recipes for this eBook, which means taste and fulfilment were high on the list of priorities. Because our pantry and fridge is full of wholefoods, the recipes are also inherently nourishing and nutrient-dense – perfect for teenagers who are transforming right before our vey eyes.
Using everyday foods rather than hard to get items, all the recipes are truly a reflection of how we love to eat when at home, and we hope you love them as much as we do.
Ingredients used are repeated throughout several recipes so that nothing goes to waste. For example, the ricotta and yoghurt used in the Ricotta, Ham and Spinach Hot Pots make an appearance again in the Cherry Cheesecake Pizza which, in turn, uses leftover pastry from the recipe for Pie-Sagna. You get the drift. The motto is to make the most out of what you’ve got.
Each recipe has a wonderfully descriptive picture to whet your appetite, helpful tips, and candid shots of Orlando and I scattered throughout.
We really hope you have as much fun as we both did cooking up a storm in the kitchen!
