WIAtuesday

I thought a good way to start back this blog would be a WIAW, on Tuesday. This came to me this am as I was fixing our breakfast-Baby Bowen and I eat mostly the same things now with slight variations.

I have had a lot of you looking for toddler meal inspiration so here’s a soft intro to some of his favorites eats-believe it or not he is into anything GREEN. Asparagus, broccoli, green beans, peas-all his very favorite foods!

I have so missed this little blog! Since I feel the Lord calling me to full time mom, not cookie business owner, I am hoping I can get back to blogging (during nap time and such).

Can you believe Baby Bowen will be one year old in December!! Where has time gone?? It’s been the best and hardest and most joyful and most sanctifying year of our lives. Praise God for this precious blessing!

 

On to todays eats: 

Breakfast- Bowen and I both ate a banana on the way to fit mama, his got everywhere-mine did not. At fit mama baby b had one of these peanut butter breakfast cookies from Laura Lea Balanced Cookbook! 

When I got home I made a vitamin C smoothie with oranges, lemon, frozen banana, kiwi, turmeric, grated ginger root and almond milk-still trying to kick this lingering cold I’ve had since forever. Baby B has a green smoothie and maybe an egg or fruit almost every morning. He sucks this green smoothie down made with spinach, banana, blueberries, spiruilina and almond milk.

Snack: cuties for Bowen, Siete food chips & a pb breakfast cookie for me 

Lunch: Butternut Squash soup and “salad in a jar”, I made a big salad to bring to a friends last night so while prepping that I went ahead and made salads for the week. Baby Bowen had butternut squash and some cuties. 

and a bonus lunch from yesterday so you can get an idea for some toddler eats! I made ground chicken taco salad, without the cayenne in my taco mix and Bowen ate it up. He had his with avocado, tomato and asparagus.

Dinner: We have been on the go this Holiday season I am sure like the rest of you.. Bowen and I call each other ship one and two because it seems like we are just passing each other by most nights! Tonight Bowen had bible study fellowship so we  all ate together early, which means dinner was ready and in the instapot early-the IP has saved the day the last couple of weeks.

Tonight was organic chicken thighs, baby portobello mushrooms, garlic, thyme and chicken stock over brown rice  with some steamed broccoli-super simple, quick and nourishing! 

If you don’t have an instapot you must get one for Christmas!! Today I have made butternut squash soup, brown rice and our chicken thighs in the IP. It’s so easy and packs some serious flavor in a short amount of time!

Baby Bowen had this same supper along with some asparagus then baked apples for dessert 😉
HE LOVES THESE APPLES. I bet he eats a bag of apples a week or more! I peel and slice any apples I have and simmer in water and some lemon juice until tender then add cinnamon. 

I had a little chocolate for my sweet treat! 

That’s it! Thanks for reading along, comment below your toddler’s favorite eats!

    Maggie-So thankful your blogging again! always love keeping up with your sweet little family! Love that you shared all of this. I do have a question about Baby B’s food that you feed him, does he seem to have any hard time eating it/swallowing it? My little one only has 2 teeth, and is a couple days younger than B, but anytime i give him table food, he doesn’t seem interested? And when he tries something he seems to almost choke on it, even when its cut up in small pieces. I know each babe is different, just wondering if you had any suggestions or tips on how you did it with yours. Thanks, God bless & keep the blog coming 🙂 -Ashlee

      Hey Ashlee!! You are so sweet & so encouraging! I love that you love reading along 🙂 He has gradually gotten better at better at chewing,eating,swallowing! He has certainly learned to “gag” things that he can’t get down. He has four teeth (so not many to eat with) but manages to eat most everything- it just takes lots of chewing/gumming! We give him lots of spear shaped food, like bananas cut in long spears or asparagus and he nibbles with his front teeth until he is able to get to a size he can easily swallow (if that makes sense?) I have read that the choking/gagging is a reflux they learn and its all part of getting used to new foods! Raspberries are a good one to start with because they’re big enough for them to pick up but soft enough to swallow and avocado! Really soft broccoli seems to be easy for bowen to “chew” on the floret portion-he usually quits around the stem. Hopes this helps!!
