Pumpkins ROCK! Heck, all winter squashes do, and all of them make great baby food.
According to NutritionData.com, pumpkins are:
a good source of Thiamin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Pantothenic Acid, Iron, Magnesium and Phosphorus, and a very good source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Riboflavin, Potassium, Copper and Manganese.
That’s a lot of good stuff for baby and you!
See how I prepared and fed creamy pumpkin to Little Bean is our latest Baby Food Adventure….
The other day I pinned a Portabello Mushroom pizza and was immediately inspired. It’s such a simple idea and so light. I had to try it for myself.
The other day I found myself craving an Orange Julius. Are they as popular as I think they are?
Growing up we had an Orange Julius at our local mall. It was always a treat for us at the end of a family shopping trip. Once I was old enough to be dropped off at the mall alone (ahhh High School memories,) it was always one of my first stops.
If you’ve never had one they are smoothie-like but not nearly as thick. Read the rest of this post
So I’m a little breakfast nutty at the moment. Little Bean LOVES eggs and I find myself cooking them more and more.
This morning I decided to go super light (after last nights chocolate overload) and it was totally satisfying for just over 100 calories!
I had such high hopes for this video. I set up a secondary camera to shoot the stove top and planned to edit and splice the two clips together. Exciting right?! <- ok so I’m a geek. Read the rest of this post
A few weeks ago I saw Chef Michael Simon make a raw kale salad on The Chew. He sliced beets up real thin and cut the kale into ribbons. Then made a vinaigrette out of red wine vinegar and olive oil.
I was immediately intrigued.
I’m fairly new to quinoa. It definitely wasn’t something I grew up with. I didn’t even know it existed until a few years ago.
WHFood.com lists quinoa in their top World’s Healthiest Food list because it’s high in protein, magnesium, iron and it’s low in calories. One half cup cooked has about 110 calories, 4 g of fat and 5 g of fiber. Not bad for baby! Not bad at all!
But what about the texture? How would Little Bean react to something with so many chunks? Find out in our latest Baby Food Adventure…
