BITES FOR MY BABE

One of the most common questions I get is what do I feed Benjamin. Typically B has whatever I am making for myself. I give him a good balance of fruit, veggies, plant based protein and carbohydrates to make sure he's getting enough fiber and key nutrients. For this meal I sautéed carrots in a little bit of olive oil plus a tiny bit of sea salt, frozen green peas, sauteed tempeh and brown rice pasta. 

INGREDIENTS (All Organic)

  • 1/2 tsp. olive oil 
  • A tiny pinch of sea salt 
  • 1 carrot (cook 2 carrots to have for another meal) 
  • 1/4 cup frozen peas (cook 1/2 total) 
  • 1/2 cup brown rice pasta (cook whole box)
  • 1/2 piece of tempeh (I suggest only cooking what you need, it doesn't store well) 

PROCESS

  1. Add olive oil and a pinch of sea salt to a medium saucepan on low heat (Click Here) for saucepan
  2. Add chopped carrots 
  3. Add frozen peas 
  4. Lightly saute 
  5. Bring water to boil in a pot as you saute veggies (Click Here) for pot
  6. Add pasta to boiling water
  7. Add a little bit of olive oil in a medium saucepan on low heat 
  8. Add tempeh 
  9. Cook tempeh until its slightly brown on both sides
Typically I prefer brown rice, gluten free pasta for B; however, all I had in the house was bow tie pasta and made it work along with a Hilary's veggie burger. Do the best you can with what you have. This will forever be my motto. I try my best to make him the healthiest meals possible but I'm also aware that he's going to have an occasional cookie, slice of pizza (minus the cheese until he's old enough to ask for it himself) and regular pasta. And that's ok. The more you stress over every meal the more stress you transfer to them.
