So I am in the process of replacing all of our staples for the organic versions. It's proving quite challening. First up, we tackled. I found a brand at Central Market called Living Right. They were uncooked so it took about 25 minutes total to make them. I also had to make sure the inside temp was a certain temp before they were safe to eat. A bit unnerving and ummmm I was planning on popping them into the microwave. So 30 minutes later and lots of screaming by 2 of 3 we finally sat down to eat lunch. The chicken nugget looked quite a bit different than the usual ones. They were white and wouldn't brown, covered with oats and they weren't fooling anybody. In the end, 1 of 3 ate them out of obligation and 3 of 3 out of hunger. However, 2 of 3 was not buying it. Even drenched in ketchup, she knew. She refused to eat more than a bite. I might add that she only ate that bite as she was bribed by juice. She wanted juice. Unfortunately, she chose not to get the juice as she just couldn't muster up 2 more bites. So the verdict is still out on the nuggets. It could be nap time melt down, the fact that we were 30 minutes late on lunch, or that the nuggets were just not so tasty. I tasted them too, and I'm thinking it is the latter. This would be a great diet food. A person would not over eat them! We'll try again and report back. In the meantime-this momma is on the hunt for another brand to taste test. Wondering if I should just learn to make my own. Just a thought.
