Well, this is sort of true.
Here’s the truth: I am a Registered Dietitian with a very, very picky eater living in my house. He is four years old, and has the determination of a 20 year old! And when he is determined not to eat something, he won’t.
I have been known to try to trick him into eating something new, but usually it doesn’t work. Can you relate?
As a dietitian, this type of problem can really stress me out. I, of all people, know the importance of getting a well-balanced, healthy diet.
Imagine my shock when my dad started giving my picky eater “green drinks” (full of fruits and vegetables) and he actually drank it. And sometimes even asked for more!
I have shown how to make your own peanut butter and make pesto with the Vita-mix, but the shakes we made with the Vita-mix are just as amazing. My picky eater says “YUCK” about a blueberry but he sure will drink it!
I “hide” all sorts of things in these yummy “milkshakes” (as my picky eater calls them!): flax seeds, Greek yogurt, spinach, carrots, strawberries, blueberries and lots more!
It really does help me sleep at night.
