There’s something about a chicken tender, isn’t there? You immediately feel guilty eating them, but they bring you right back to childhood when it was totally acceptable to order those every time you went out to dinner, no matter what kind of restaurant it was. I LIVED on chicken tenders growing up. Nowadays though, I prefer my food a little more sophisticated (most days). Every once in awhile though, I want some good old chicken tenders. So I decided to make my own – a healthier version so I could feel a little less guilty about it.
So far (knock on wood), my 9 month old will eat anything I give her. So, I try and give her healthy choices as much as possible. If everything tasted good, wouldn’t you eat the healthiest stuff all the time too!? I read an article on superfoods for babies and decided to try and pack as many of those as possible into one french fry shaped “finger” that she could easily feed herself. I found a winning recipe! I made them over the weekend and they will probably last all week – plus they are easy to pack for daycare.
You start with the five superfoods:
- 1 can of Black beans
- 1/4 cup Frozen spinach
- 1 cup Quinoa
- 1 Egg
- 1/2 Sweet potato
Mix all of your ingredients and form into french fry shaped “logs” or “fingers”.
Here’s another recipe that I’ve tried time and time again. I’ve played around with it a lot and now twice in a row, I’ve gotten the “This meatloaf is really good” response from my husband. That kind of response? That’s an A+! Trust me. If there was something he didn’t like about it, he would let me know in…only in the most loving I want you to be the best cook you can be way of course 🙂 I promise he will deny saying that my meatloaf was really good (twice in a row, mind you), but you’re all my proof that he said it.
So, first things first. Here are (most) of the ingredients you’ll need (I get distracted and forget to get all of the ingredients in the picture – forgive me!). You want to mince the onion and garlic, like I did in the picture.
