Pant! Pant! I Will Eat Your Veggies

We've been having raw food dinners lately, in the form of smoothies. Very healthy smoothies comprised of avocados, bananas, apples, pears, pineapples etc... I toast linseed and wheatgerm in the little toaster oven and grind them into a powder that smells of toasted nuts in a bakery.

Then, I blend everything together with some water and fruit juice.

So, dinner these days is a smoothie with a pile of pistachios, almonds or cashews. This diet has been good for me and The Husband. We've both lost weight, and I haven't been feeling my PMS symptoms very much since I started on this diet.

The Family chatted over dinner tonight and we wondered aloud if Milo would like the smoothie. Little Boy was fast to confirm that Milo loves smoothies as well as all other types of green stir fry. Hmmmmm... The Father asked "How do you know for sure?"

And Little Boy was caught out. The vegetable diet that I had been carefully apportioning to my son had all gone down Milo's throat. Whatever the smoothie or the stir fry, Milo has downed them with gusto, unaware that dogs don't eat plants... and possibly unaware that he is a dog!!

Oh, Milo will win the healthiest dog award!

What does Little Boy eat then, if he gives all his mmeals away to Milo?

Ting - The children have different nutritional needs. I provide small portions of meat or egg for Little Boy and The Daughter. Little Boy can go nuts with meat at lunch and makes sure he does. Then he tops up at supper with the stash of buns I keep ready in the fridge... or toast with jam. I guess now I know why the stash of buns go down so fast these days!!

I shall have to be Tiger Mom and lock up the fridge!!
