I know there are a lot of parents out there that can relate to this dilemma "what can I make for the kids that doesn't scream plant friendly vegan, is healthy, low in salt, no fat" without the kids saying "Is that VEGAN?"
If your kids weren't brought up on a plant based diet, chances are they're not too happy you're embracing this. The two meal dinner is becoming the "New Normal" when it comes to family dining. I've encouraged my sister-in-law to make the same meal in two pots so that they think one has meat and one is vegan, and I know this has worked to a small degree, but mostly they're on to you. But here's something that everyone can enjoy and it's kid friendly and easy.
Make a batch of Homemade Fat Free Tortilla Chips
Find your favorite no fat, low sodium fresh salsa
Buy a can of Fat Free refried beans (heat in the microwave covered for about a minute to minute and a half)
Grab some ripe avocados (cube them and pour on the salsa)
A little Siracha or Tabasco to the beans if you like spicy.....
....and you're sure to have a healthy SUCCESSFUL FAT FREE SNACK! If the chips are already made, this is 5 minutes tops. Not bad for a quick appetizer when your carnivorous friends stop by unexpectedly as well.
