Haven’t done one of these posts in a while…
We hit a little rough patch with food last/this month. She’s only ever been sick maybe once before… and that was while breast-fed only, so it didn’t (couldn’t really) change her eating habits. But after being sick last month, it got a bit iffy for a while. She only wanted rice, bananas, avocado, tofu, and snacks— nothing else. It took a week or two, but after a bit of effort, she was right back on track for nutrition-filled eating. I’m still not sure if its luck, genetics, or my insistent “we’re only good crap around here!” ways, but man oh man, I am happy and lucky to have such a good eater.
tofu scramble and avocado, still in a bathing suit, after a long beach day.
grilled cheese with avocado and sliced apples
ginger garlic fried tofu, thinly sliced brussels sprouts, diced mushrooms, over whole wheat pearl couscous. (the tofu is cooked much like the tofu found HERE, but I didn’t marinade it very long, if at all. Just grate ginger and garlic, mix with soy and agave, and cook)
first failed attempt to make her like cauliflower: cauliflower rice, quinoa with corn and peas, cooked kale.
second failed attempt to make her like cauliflower: cauliflower mash (she ate SOME), peas, and the much loved chickpea patty.
so far, the only way to make her eat cauliflower: aloo gobi with red lentils and peas, with white rice.
getting over a stomach bug easy meals: white rice, black peas, add peas.
avocado toast, of course.
vegan yum yums: eggplants lasagna (we always add mushrooms and garlic, obviously)
pinto bean and veggie (mushroom, onion, and peppers) rice, with a corn, avocado, tomato salsa.
honestfare’s tomato, squash, and coconut milk soup, with couscous (to make the soup a bit more baby spoon-to-mouth friendly)
a messy vegan mac and cheese with broccoli.
yuca quesadillas, guacamole, and a tiny bit of heirloom tomato salsa.
Yeah… cauliflower isn’t a hit around here. Which I guess is fine, because I don’t really care for it either. I do love a good bowl of aloo gobi though…. so I’m happy this kid will eat that. For indian dishes I tend to make a big, spicy pot for me and a small, no hot-spices pot for her. I’d really love to add more things to her diet (and mine), but I’m not really sure what. I’m hoping to head down to my favorite Miami market this month and maybe find some new, exciting things there.
