Dinner 7: Hamburgers with Crispy Potatoes and Vegetables
Although I serve red meat once a week, we buy 100% grass fed beef locally raised beef from Whole Foods--and, I serve it with a lot of vegetables to make it a healthy meal. This week I had raw zucchini, asparagus, cherry tomatoes and crispy baked potatoes.
I love pulling every vegetable I can find out of the fridge and having a colorful assortment on the table for everyone to eat. Even if they don't eat their vegetables, they know what a healthy meal looks like. It took a while, but my kids do eat their veggies now. Sometimes I have to insist. But it's easier if there are a bunch of choices and an overwhelming abundance--not just one lonely carrot on their plate.
