A great addition to my ‘deceptively delicious’ lifestyle

I came across a wonderful product by

qq-nurturme.jpgNurture me.  It’s freeze dried, ground up organic fruits/veggies.

How awesome is that!  It’s made to be baby food that you can just re-constitute by adding water.  However, they also give you ideas on how to add it to your regular foods to boost the nutritional value in the foods your kids(& yourself) eat.  Obviously, this should NOT replace fresh fruits & veggies but can be a good addition, especially for those children who are not getting enough fruits &/or veggies.

I’ll let you know once I’ve tried these in a few recipes.  So far I bought squash, carrot & sweet potato…but I may have to try some more soon!

UPDATE:  I have found that these powdered veggies have a stronger flavor than most of the purees that I have made.  I’ve had to use less than I’d like because it alters the flavor of the food, sometimes, too much.  Also, sprinkling these in foods usually alters the flavor wayyyyy too much…so much so that the kids won’t eat.  BUT as a baby food, baby ate them just fine!
