Brussels Sprouts Chips
Brussels Sprouts Chips are the new kale chip! My daughter Catherine’s love of the crispy, almost burnt leaves of Roasted Brussels Sprouts was our inspiration for Brussels Sprouts Chips. They’re like potato chips, only 500 times better. I promise, you won’t regret adding this recipe to your rotation.
Whole Wheat Crepes
Crepes are an easy and fun way to cook with your kids! My kids love them hot off the pan, but they can easily be made ahead to save time on busy mornings. This recipe also makes it easy to shift to whole-grain flour. With Homemade Nutella or Warm Cinnamon Apples tucked inside and a touch of real maple syrup, you’ll never miss the refined flour.
Quinoa Crumble Cakes
Quinoa Crumble Cakes are so delicious and easy, you’ll never buy another veggie burger in a box. Made with rainbow quinoa, and packed with veggies, this recipe is great fun to cook together and makes for a simple and fun meatless meal. My kids love mixing the ingredients and forming the cakes with their hands, just like play clay.
Praise for Jennifer Tyler Lee and The 52 New Foods Challenge:
“Fun? Simple? Rewards dinner conversation, good manners and setting the table? Encourages even the most reticent child—or adult!—to eat their veggies? Supports non-profits dedicated to combating the childhood obesity epidemic? You can see why we love this.”
– Laurie David’s The Family Dinner
“A simple, fun, and playful way to get kids to eat healthy and try new foods.”
– Rachel Ray’s Yum-O!
“A mom and a genius game creator helping kids eat fresh food!”
– Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution
“Jennifer Tyler Lee’s solution-based book is filled with thoughtful advice, surprising nuggets of information, and, most of all, a welcome dose of proactive optimism. This is a lovely blueprint for making family meals much more fun.”
– Katie Workman, author of The Mom 100 Cookbook and creator of TheMom100.com
“The 52 New Foods Challenge is quickly becoming THE resource guide for inspiring my kids to eat the full spectrum of foods.”
-Melissa Lanz, author of The Fresh 20 Cookbook and CEO of The Fresh 20
“A year from reading this book, the fact that your family is eating healthier will be a symptom of something far deeper. The food will have been a delicious prop, an opportunity to think and communicate differently. That’s what makes Jennifer Tyler Lee’s book so valuable. If it helps, think of The 52 New Foods Challenge as a delicious blend of Dr Spock and The Joy of Cooking for 21st century foodie parents. But it’s much more than that.”
– Raj Patel, author of Stuffed and Starved
“Invites kids of all ages into the kitchen to cook, and gives them exactly what they need to get excited about kale, salmon, and quinoa instead of pasta, pizza and other “kid food.” Jennifer Tyler Lee has planted the seeds of comfort and confidence in the child’s kitchen.”
– Jesse Cool, author of Simply Organic
