From Kid to Mom, Mom to Kid, Cooking Came Full Circle

From Kid to Mom, Mom to Kid, Cooking Came Full Circle

For as long as I can remember I have enjoyed cooking. My intrigue began when I was around 4 or 5 years old. I remember my friend Sara received a Betty Crocker Easy Bake Oven for her 5th birthday, I was instantly fascinated and curious (and probably a tinge jealous). I think I told the Birthday Fairy and Santa for years and years that that is what I wanted. And because I never got one (I also asked for bikes and typewriters and clothes and other toys, so please don’t think my parents or Santa or the Birthday Fairy neglected me), my desire for cooking never faded. It just got stronger.

Like many, many other parents out there, I value providing homemade meals for my family as often as possible. Healthy habits with whole foods have become a basic priority here. So often I find myself thinking about what I am going to cook over the next few days. I LOVE meal planning, and I love sorting through cookbooks and magazines as I imagine pulling together different dishes to complete our meals. So much inspiration out there!

These days my house is filled with three growing kids and a hungry husband. During our busiest days (which feels like every day) I love knowing I can quickly create a well balanced and tasty meal by using my sweet potato tomato sauce. From pasta to pizza, sloppy joes to lasagna roll-ups – I know we’re getting at least 75% vegetables per serving. Pretty cool! And, by combining great flavor with a whole score of health benefits, this sauce brings the sweet potato to play with every bite!

The Sweet Potato: A Nutritional Champion

Bursting with vitamin B6, C, D, Fiber, Calcium and Potassium, beta carotene and antioxidants, sweet potatoes pack tremendous nutritional value to your diet. Powered by sweet potatoes, this sauce is a nutritional champion. It is an excellent immunity booster for kids of all ages with a lot of fiber to help digestion. Calcium helps them to get healthy bones, vitamins B6 helps to regulate their metabolism and nervous system.
Sweet potatoes are a naturally sweet treat that delivers a lot of nutrition and are a nourishing addition to any meal. They are a favorite among children thanks to their natural sweetness and bright color. Why have an ordinary sauce when you can use this healthy and delicious upgrade?

“As the owner of Montessori Fun, a beautiful home preschool in Windsor, I would like to recommend Natalia’s Sweet Potato Tomato Sauce. We have used it here for the children’s lunches as a base for toasted cheese on English muffins, pizza sauce, sauce for pasta or just plain fun and yummy dip. Kids love to dip their veggies in this Sauce and parents love it especially because it is so healthy and made from sweet potatoes. If I could buy it off the shelf, I would make it a staple for our lunch program.”
