My 14 year old daughter has finally emerged from her bed at 11.30 (school holidays and teenage hood). She’s doing her best to eat well, to trim down a little. My daughter is very active, plays club soccer and waterpolo, and has a very healthy appetite. I was intrigued to see the meal she put together for herself – here’s a picture, sorry about the quality- by the time I downloaded it the meal had been eaten!
The red soup is Borscht, a family favourite, left over from dinner, made from beef – I use bones and cook for a couple of hours in water before adding grated carrots, sliced cabbage and grated beetroot, plus garlic, dill, lemon juice and beef stock – very easy and yummy. A bit more protein just for variety – mussels and tuna. Fresh vegetables – carrot and cucumber sticks. Fresh fruit – apple, grapes. Healthy fats- macadamia nuts. A treat – a few slices of tinned peach. The bottles have fish oil supplement. And a glass of water.
