Broth Bowls for Family ADD Nutrition


The school where I work has the best cafeteria. Many college cafeterias serve tasteless gunk, but ours has great nutritious food. One of my new favorites is the broth bowl station. It doesn't hurt that the guy who runs it is always pleasant and helpful. The assortment of chopped vegetables is fresh and flavorful. The colorful veggies really do help me make good food choices. I can eat the rainbow! Good nutrition helps me keep the negative symptoms of ADD at bay.

Broth bowls are an easy way to get more nutrition into your family meals. They are as easy as chopping veggies and throwing them into the bowl! The veggies are served raw, so they need to be thinly sliced. Protein can be plant or animal based, however, it does need to be precooked. Set out a variety of veggies and protein, then let everybody fill their bowls to their taste. If you want carbohydrate, add some rice noodles. The thin ones cook quickly. Here are instructions for making tasty broth bowls.

Broth Bowl Instructions:

Broth:
Use homemade broth, store made broth from the grocery store, commercially made broths sold in the soup section of the grocery store, broth based soup, such as chicken noodle or chicken with rice. If your family prefers a vegetarian bowl, choose vegetable broths. A few years ago, these were difficult to find. Now, they are sold in many stores. I like the ALDI brand and the Kirkland brand that is sold at Costco.

When the broth goes in the bowl, it needs to be almost boiling. Use caution pouring the broth. Also, children should not carry these bowls unaided. They should be carried by an adult with steady hands! Pot holders are a good idea, or take the precautions that you prefer when you deal with very hot food.

Finely Chopped Veggies:
Kale, bok choy, savoy cabbage, cabbage, Romaine lettuce, kelp, celery, matchstick carrots, sweet mini peppers, jalapeno peppers, scallions, chives, bean sprouts, summer squash, and mushrooms. Parsley, cilantro, and basil are nice additions. Do you have favorite veggies that I didn't list? Use them!

Small, Thinly Sliced Cooked Proteins:
Cut tofu into half-inch cubes. You may use cooked beans or canned beans. Keep your meats bite sized. Use chicken, pork, or beef. You might also consider tiny cooked shrimp.

Condiments:
These are typically Asian seasonings. Use soy sauce, teriyaki, hoisin, fish sauce, spicy sambol oelek, and lime wedges.

To create a broth bowl, make sure that the bowl is large enough to hold your assortment of ingredients. Set out a variety of your family's favorite veggies that are thinly chopped and sliced. Have each person add the veggies on the bottom of their bowl. Then, put the protein on top of the veggies. Use no more than 3- 5 ounces of protein per person. Finally, put a small amount of noodles, if desired, on top of the protein. Pour the steaming broth over the ingredients. Be sure to leave enough space at the top, so that the hot broth doesn't slop over the edge when you are carrying the broth bowl. Have a variety of condiments at the table, so that your family can stir them into their bowls. I like to let my bowl stand for about 5 minutes to let the flavors blend, and so that it can cool off a bit.

With broth bowls, everybody wins! You get solid nutrition that helps to improve the negative symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder. Each person gets to choose their ingredients. Broth bowls are not expensive, and they are tasty. They are a great addition to your food repertoire when you don't have a lot of time to cook. Try one soon!

This book can take the mystery out of making broth. Highly recommended!
