It hasn't been the easiest transition for Ava. Like most 7 years olds she loves cakes and bread and sugary treats. One big problem we were having was that she kept pouring over kids cooking books and getting upset that she couldn't eat anything in them. So I bought her a couple Paleo kids cookbooks. One of them was Eat Like a Dinosaur
I think she must read this book at least once a day, pouring over the different recipes. We've tried quite a few in the book and they've al been a hit. Yesterday we decided to make Steak and Strawberry Salad. We'd had steak for dinner so it was the perfect way to use up the leftovers.
Steak and Strawberry Salad
Ava loved it (I could not get any good shots of her eating)
We sat outside and had a little picnic. It was beautiful and fresh on a warm winter's day.
We didn't end up dressing the salad and I don't think it needed anything. The combination of meat and fruit was surprisingly delicious. Definitely one we will be making again!
