I’m Hungry, Let’s Cook!
Who doesn’t want their kids to be confident and independent, and to have life skills that serve them into their adult years?
Well, this cute, inspiring book features fun recipes that are suitable for children aged eight to 12 years – and while the recipes are clear, highly instructional and easy enough for children to follow, many grown-ups tell me they keep this book as a staple in their kitchen!
It encourages the use of fresh, organic ingredients, and features many healthy recipes (as well as a few naughty treats) – try summery favourites such as Fresh Berry Bircher Muesli, or Yogy-Pine-Pash Ices.
Monkey Mike’s Raw Food Kitchen: An Un-Cookbook for Kids!
I’m passionate about health, especially the health of children. So, I decided to write the world’s first raw-food recipe book for kids!
The recipes feature mostly raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, and give kids a fun, healthy, tasty alternative to processed foods.
As well as heaps of recipes (like Orange-Choc Bliss Balls, Froggy Delight Green Smoothie, and Dracula’s Carrot Salad), the book is packed full of creative activities, puzzles, feature articles and healthy-eating information. It’s in e-book (PDF) format, so this gorgeous, full-colour, illustrated book can be downloaded and used straight away.
If you’re wanting a good beginner’s guide to raw food, this is a great place to start.
I’m Hungry, Let’s Grow It!
Following on the from the success of my first book (I’m Hungry, Let’s Cook!), this book takes organic eating a step further – by showing you and your family how to grow your very own food, and eat it!
It’s a family guide, featuring an introductory organic gardening section suitable for Australian conditions (including composting, worm farming, natural pest control, and water conservation), and profiles of 14 different fruits, vegetables, and herbs.
Each plant is accompanied by two knock-your-socks-off recipes, so that you can start feasting on the fruits of your bounty. The recipes – such as Spicy-Coconut Climbing Beans, and Choc-Dipped Strawberries – are easy enough for most eight- to 12-year-olds to make independently.
There’s nothing more satisfying than eating delicious food that you’ve grown yourself (and knowing that it’s chemical free…).
