Dishing it up with Weelicious!

Just recently, I was introduced to a new site called “Weelicious.”  Have you ever heard of it?  Honestly, it is a brilliant concept that I will most definitely be utilizing. I think you may be as well after I relay this exciting information.

First off, what is Weelicious?

It is a platform to show parents around the world how easy and beneficial it is to expose children to wholesome and delicious homemade food.”  ~Catherine McCord

In the fast paced world that we live in it’s so easy to get lazy and consume fatty and processed foods.  Has fresh and wholesome foods become a lost cause?  Not according to Catherine McCord.

About Catherine

Launched in 2007, Catherine, mom to Kenya(5) and Chloe (3), created as a platform to show parents around the world how easy and beneficial it is to expose children to wholesome and delicious homemade food. After personally struggling with how to feed Kenya, Catherine recognized a need for realistic, accessible and nutritious recipes for parents using minimal ingredients that are fully loaded with flavor.

Weelicious, which now houses over 700 original recipes, isn’t about taking risks or presenting challenges in the kitchen. Catherine inspires her community with ingredients that are readily available and recipes that are fast and easy to follow.  Debuting a new recipe or tip daily and how-to cooking videos posted every Tuesday, Weelicious is a wealth of information and has quickly developed an international audience on Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter. 

Catherine is also an acclaimed chef and food blogger who enjoys sharing Weelicious not only as a cookbook, but also as an “inspirational” food guide.

You can now enjoy Catherine’s book: Weelicious: One Family. One Meal.  There are 140 fast, fresh and easy recipes inside for you to dish up for your family.  Catherine launched her book on the Today Show on Tuesday, September 18th.

The book is broken up into two parts:

  1. Part 1. Getting Started: “Addresses the realistic challenges of feeding children. From understanding how to inspire kids to be great eaters at an early age, to managing mealtime stresses, negotiating food fights, and tips on how to food shop as a family, Catherine cleverly weaves first-hand experiences with factual evidence to offer concrete solutions to these every day problems.” 
  2. Part 2. “offers a range of recipes from sweet and savory homemade baby foods, like Roast Pear & Banana Puree and Mint & Pea Puree, to clever snack ideas including Whole Wheat Seed Crackers and Strawberry Fruit Leather, plus smart breakfast, dinner and dessert dishes (See back for complete list of recipes).  Each recipe is crafted to educate kids and involve them in the cooking process.
