It seems like there are so many recipe books and blogs out there about ‘tricking’ kids into eating healthy foods. I’ve even heard of brownies with vegetables hidden in them. Sounds nasty, not to mention deceptive! Why not just teach our kids instead to love healthy food by making their meals more fun? Here’s a great example of a healthy and kid-friendly meal that the kids can even help put together.


  • 1 lb. hamburger
  • 1 lb. Italian sausage, uncooked and squeezed out of its casing
  • 1 tsp. sea salt (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. oregano
  • Paleo tomato sauce (1 can tomato paste, 1/2 cup water or to desired thickness, 1 tsp. oregano, 1 tsp. garlic powder)
  • Meatza toppings of your (or your kids’) choice!
  • Olive oil

Directions: Preheat the oven to 370 degrees. Mix the hamburger meat and sausage, salt, pepper, oregano and garlic powder. Spread the meat out on a cookie sheet or mold into whatever shape desired. Make sure the meat is spread fairly thin, but without holes, and found the edges up to make a crust. Cook in oven for 10 minutes. In the meantime, chop up and saute your toppings in a bit of olive oil. Once the meat is done cooking, pour off the grease and immediately cover the meat with the tomato sauce. Add your toppings and have a Meatza party!
