In this week’s cookbook review, we are back with a fantastic family meal cookbook. The Adventurous Eaters Club is the first book from the TV star Misha Collins and his wife, journalist and historian Vicki Collins, that show to families how to be mealtime adventurers so that kids might have a lifelong relationship with real food.
We all know how difficult it is to get a nutritious and delicious meal on the table every night. One of the biggest struggles that parents go through with kids is getting them to eat diverse and healthy meals. Life, after all, has more and better things to offer than just chicken nuggets and boxed mac and cheese.
The Adventurous Eaters Club tells the Collins’ story of struggling to get their firstborn to eat more than the usual pre-packaged foods. At first, they succumbed, anything to end the mealtime battles. But with sinking hearts, they realized fruit snacks and buttered noodles weren’t just void of nutrition. They were setting him up for a lifetime with a limited palate and a reliance on convenience foods.
So, as a family, they decided to lean into what they love best – adventure – and invited their kids to be playful and exploratory in the kitchen. In this book, Misha and Vicki share how they created a home where mealtime doesn’t involve coercion or trickery, and where salad, veggies, fresh soups, and fruit are the main course.
Combining personal anecdotes and practical tips with over 100 creative, delicious, whimsical recipes little hands can help prepare The Adventurous Eaters Club offers all parents the support, encouragement, and practical advice they need to make lifelong adventurous eaters out of their kids.
But what we really like in this book is that it isn’t just for families! We all know at least one grown-up who still orders chicken tenders whenever they go out to eat. This book is a fun way to expand on anyone’s limited mealtime outlook! And with the holidays coming up, nothing says “I love you/expand your eating horizons” like this cookbook!
The Adventurous Eaters Club aims to make family mealtime fun and nutritious. It’s an escape from convenience foods and an entrance into a wide variety of items they will be excited to try. If you are looking for some help with your family meals, this book might have what you are looking for. And the best part is that by buying this book you will also be helping other families. The profits from the book will be donated to a variety of charities that provide access to healthy food for underserved families.
The Adventurous Eaters Club is a fun cookbook for all families! With easy and delicious vegetarian recipes it will be easier for everyone to get healthier, including the little ones.
