This is a whole new world for me. I always thought the people who made their own baby food must have a lot of spare time. Something that I don’t have with my four kids. After changing my diet and learning about how NUTRITION AFFECTS OUR OVERALL HEALTH. I decided I had to try it out. I have been reading “Super Baby Food” it is full of great information. However, I was starting to feel overwhelmed with all the new info from all the books I have been reading and now, MAKING HEALTHY BABY FOOD?! I started with just some basic combinations. I peel a banana and chop and apple, throw it into my vita-mix with 2 tsp of ground flaxseed(because I am feeding twins, use only ONE tsp for one baby). IT WORKED!!! SUPER EASY!! I am still working on getting enough healthy fats into their diets without yogurts and cheese. I give them half an avocado a day and they seem to love it. I smash it up with oatmeal or brown rice. I take the cooked brown rice and an avocado and throw it in my vita-mix. A few seconds to make HEALTHY and EASY HOMEMADE BABY FOOD. I am amazed and beyond thrilled at how simple it really can be. I am not perfect, I do have on hand a few jars of baby food (good earth is the closest I can find to homemade) for those rushed and on the go moments.
