Summer is here!! I don’t know about you, but I think this school year flew by! Time to keep the kids busy and plan some fun summer activities! If boredom strikes, which we all know it will, plan some fun days in the kitchen and experiment with some new recipes. Cooking with your kids will not only keep them busy, but it will keep them healthy too!
Most of my recipes include produce that is growing seasonally in a school garden and in our own garden. If you don't have a garden, I would recommend visiting a local farmers market to find some of the freshest produce (another fun activity to do with the kids)!
So gather your kids, aprons and chef hats and basic cooking utensils, and let’s have some fun in the kitchen!
Cucumber Guacamole Boats
This was one of my favorite recipes to teach! Avocados have over 20 vitamins and minerals! Probably one of the healthiest things kids can eat! A healthy fat that is good for brain health too! Make a batch of guacamole and add to cucumber "boats". Kids can add their favorite toppings: diced tomato, bell pepper, cilantro, onion and more! Find the recipe here: Cucumber Guacamole Boats
