3 Delicious Recipes From The Weelicious Smoothie Project Book
Written by Katie Hintz-Zambrano
As a mother to three children (Kenya, 14, Chloe, 12, and Gemma, 6) and creator of the cult-followed Weelicious recipe blog as well as the One Potato family meal box, Catherine McCord knows a thing or two about feeding kids. One of her big secrets? Smoothies. In fact, smoothies have become a saving grace for McCord in more ways than one. “My vegetarian son was having nausea and headaches for months. I spoke to doctors, nutritionists, and beyond before reading a book on curing kids with food and it mentioned a line about the power of the foods in smoothies,” she explains. “Within weeks of drinking a smoothie for breakfast every morning, the symptoms of my then 8-year-old son all but disappeared.”
And it wasn’t just her son who gulped her nutrient-dense creations down. “I had a smoothie every day when I was pregnant with two of my kids, I watched my then 10-month-old baby suck down a 10oz smoothie packed with fruits and vegetables, loving every sip. Even my husband had a smoothie for breakfast while working 6 days a week, 15 hours a day and never got sick,” explains McCord, who started posting what she dubbed her “Smoothie Project” online.
Now, several years of smoothie research later, she’s got a book that’s all about the beloved beverage: Smoothie Project: The 28-Day Plan to Feel Happy and Healthy No Matter Your Age.
