LJ, Thanks for the chocolate pudding recipe! Funny thing - I already make that ALL the time and my kids DO love it!
) We add almonds on top for the kids, and sometimes put it in a pie crust (cookie or graham cracker) and add a little xantham gum to thicken it so it will keep it's shape when you slice it. Keep the recipes coming though! I so appreciate it!
chrisv - my kids are anything but strict McDougallers - but I'll keep that in mind. My 12 year old son is so funny, when he eats meat (if we go out, I let them order what they want) he'll say, "I'm eating this, but I'm still vegan!" At least they have a sense of humor about it.
I wish all the fat they ate was from plant sources - but I'm too weak to force this all on them right now - I make them eat this way at home and I don't buy the junk - and when they are out I let them choose.
But it's been great, because they are starting to say foods are greasy! (like mother-in-laws garlic bread) So I think over time, they will start choosing better when they are out too!
