Okay, so a few people have asked me what the heck is sprinkled on the roasted squash, garlic and red lentil soup from a couple posts ago. If I was an organized person, I would have told you what it was when I originally posted the recipe. But, of course, I'm not an organized person and I didn't. Sorry about that.
Basically, the shaker is a way to get more fibre, protein and omega 3's in my kids' diets. What's in it from week to week really depends on what I have in my fridge. Just put the shaker on the table when it's time to eat and let the kids shake away. Kind of like Shake N Bake, but without the bake and with a bit more shake.
Except it's good for them.
And there's no chicken involved.
Okay, it's really not like Shake N Bake at all.
