Below I've posted a few very easy and yummy recipes.
Strawberry Banana "Ice Cream". If you want a healthier alternative to ice cream then this dish is perfect. Just take frozen bananas and strawberries, put into a food processor, and voila!
A yummy alternative to processed, preservative filled rice crispy treats. I mixed puffed rice, raw oats, crushed pecans, and honey in a pot on low heat. Let it warm up and mix together for about 5 minutes and then pressed into a baking dish, set in the fridge for about an hour.
When Mason was ready to start eating solids I decided I wanted to make my own baby food. It is very easy, very economical, and very healthy. For this batch I put organic bananas and filtered water in a food processor. Then I cooked some organic spinach with filtered water and then pureed in the food processor. Once it is blended to Mason's liking I fill an ice cube tray and put in the freezer for about 30 minutes. Once it is frozen I store in Ziploc bags and freeze. When he is hungry I just set out the frozen cubes until thawed. (You can also zap in the microwave for a few seconds.) I found a lot of helpful information at this website, http://www.wholesomebabyfood.com
Here was his lunch.
My baby at supper time. He ate some organic broccoli that wasn't pureed. He basically smeared it all over his face and got a little in his mouth.
Haiden really wanted to make some lemonade in our juicer and Ella was just being silly. I juiced about 2 lemons, added filtered water, and honey.
In a previous post I had mentioned that I started making my own cleaning products. http://mckinneyclan3.blogspot.com/2010/01/homemade-part-2.html. Even though I really like being able to make my own products, I can't make everything. So here are a few of my favorite things. From left to right:
Baby Avalon Organics lotion
Burt's Bee Baby Bee Shampoo and Wash
Animal Parade Toothpaste
Dishmate Liquid dish soap
Seventh Generation Laundry Detergent
