These Baked Beef and Black Bean Nachos are a simple way to serve nachos at home but a much healthier version that only takes 10 minutes to bake!
This past week has been one of the longest I’ve had in quite awhile. It started with strep throat for me, then three days later my son being diagnosed with strep throat and my daughter with an ear infection. So that’s three of us on antibiotics. Thank goodness for modern day medicine! A week later and we’re finally all healthy and can enjoy summer! And now I can get back to cooking!
Now onto this super simple recipe. I’ve come up with another way to enjoy delicious Mexican food but much healthier. And the best part is that it only takes 20 minutes to make! And when you’re sick or have sick children the last thing you want to do is spend time in the kitchen.
Family meals are such an essential part in raising healthy eaters. With three children 5 and under, I’ve experienced my fair share of picky eaters. Thankfully I have used some strategies that have really helped make meal time less stressful. One major strategy I focus on is always offering at least one food that I know my children enjoy. This way if they don’t want to eat the other foods served, at least there is something I know they will eat. And if they only eat fruit for dinner, it’s not going to hurt them!
Another important but often overlooked strategy is eating together as a family. Research shows that when children eat together with their parents, and are served the same food, they are much more likely to eat the food offered. This is definitely very true with my own family. When we eat together as a family my kids are much more likely (and surprisingly) willing to eat new foods.
