Welcome!

We are two sisters that feed our families almost completely vegetarian. With 5 children aged 2 to 12 years between the two of us, we have had the joy and pain of experimenting. We plan to Blog 365 simple and kid approved meals. Most will be made-from-scratch but we will also share what we do when eating out. It may take more than 365 days to accomplish this but we hope you'll check back often, try our suggestions and give us your feedback.

73. Carrot Soup


I copied and pasted this from All Recipes - Joan Carney


I have made this several times and my husband and I really enjoy it.  If you don't use chicken stock I recommend 365 organic Vegetable Broth from Whole Foods Market and add a slash of whit wine to spruce it up. 

  • 3 pounds carrots, chopped
  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons dried dill weed
  • 1/4 pound butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt

  • In a medium sized stock pot, over high heat, combine the chicken stock, carrots, garlic, dill weed, salt and butter. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes or until carrots are soft.  In a blender, puree the soup, return to stock pot and simmer for an additional 30 to 45 minutes. Season with additional dill or garlic if needed.

72. Good Morning Toast

One of my favorite breakfasts is toast, but of coarse it's not the toast your mommy made you. (Unless your mom was really cool!)

Ezekiel Bread - (usually found in freezer section) lightly toasted
Earth Balance (or butter)
Raw Almond butter (or nut butter of your choice)
Raw, unfiltered honey
Strawberries - sliced
Blueberries
Raspberries and/or Blackberries

Make your toast, spread the butter, spread the peanut butter, spread the honey and arrange in your creative way, the berries.  I recommend piling on as many berries will stick to the honey surface of your toast.  If you've never tried this, you will be surprised with how much better it is than PBJ!  I also love using fresh peaches or apricots when they are in season.  I usually eat two pieces of this toast and sip some Earl Grey and boy do I feel good in the Morning!
