As summer approaches, fresh produce is becoming more and more available. I can't wait for some garden fresh zucchini, tomatoes, and carrots like the ones seen below from my garden last summer. It is very important for people to eat vegetables. The recommended number of servings is 3-5 per day and many people do not reach even close to this number. Vegetables are full of vitamins and minerals which are essential for our bodies. It is very important to start children young on loving vegetables. I recently read that you cannot tell if someone does not like something until trying it 9 times. Sometimes it takes awhile for their tastebuds to like something but they will eventually come around with it.
I was asked to make a recipe from the Clare Crespo cookbook to try out. The recipe that I chose to make is called "Hashbrains". It uses potatoes, eggs, and Country Crock butter to make a kid friendly breakfast treat. They are simple to make and very tasty! The Country Crock spread that I used helped to brown up the hashbrowns so they were crispy on the top and bottom. Each serving has 220 calories, 9 grams of fat, 3 grams of fiber, and 4 grams of protein. I loved these. They also store well and can be eaten later on heated up. To make these, check out the Clare Crespo Cookbook.
The ingredients all mixed together.
All ready to be baked!
All done and ready to eat! Time to add a squirt of ketchup.
