Bachelor Pads, AllergyKids & a Recipe for the Grill
Written by Robyn O’Brien and Adam Acheson
When I learned about the efforts of a guy who was tweeting out “Bachelor Pad Info” where he was giving advice for guys who have champagne taste but live on a beer budget, I had to laugh, as he sounded just like my husband did when we first met. So when I reached out to see if he might be interested in sharing his thoughts with our readers on AllergyKids, I think I might have caught him by surprise.
But when I shared how many dads are on the frontlines when it comes to protecting the health of kids and how important it is to share the perspective from a guy’s point of view, he was game.
So with that, meet my friend, Adam, who tweets under @BachelorPadInfo. He has some great thoughts and an awesome recipe, and it is an honor to share them here.
Summer time, the days are longer, school is out, and the smell of charcoal wafts through the air. It’s a special time, because in every young child’s life and in every father’s life there comes a point where cooking secrets and grilling knowledge is passed onto the younger generation.
Spending time preparing food and teaching how to tend to the grill is one of the best ways fathers can bond with their kids. We all know its important to teach healthy eating habits at a young age, this a great way for children to learn. Kids learn about the importance of seasoning food, and how to successful to mange heat control of the grill so food isn’t undercooked or burnt.
So here is a healthy and fun to grill recipe below.
Salmon steaks: Easy to grill and prepare with kids. Also very healthy and in easy way introduce children to eating fish.
- Salmon Steak (Only wild caught, never farm raised)
- Tin foil
- Garlic powder
- Olive oil
Take piece of tin foil and drip a small amount of olive oil onto it. Then place your salmon steak scales down onto the tin foil and season lightly with pepper a pinch of salt and garlic powder. Place a tsp. of butter on top (if dairy allergies aren’t a concern) and wrap the salmon steak tightly in the tin foil.
Place on the gill for 10-12 minutes on medium heat.
Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?
