Wednesday, 4/17/13 - Baby and I bring breakfast to our nut-free co-op preschool to eat instead of whatever gluten-y and possibly artificial ingredient-y snacks brought by snack parent. Plus we don't usually have time to eat first...
Breakfast for Mama
|Organic purple broccoli, mini tomatoes, sweet peppers; GF Udi's bagel w/organic cream cheese,|
organic hummus, GF pretzel sticks, Chobani Bite yogurt (pictured above)
[This post contains affiliate links.]I have been loving the purple broccoli I got in my CSA share at the organic farm we go to each week. I hadn't known it even existed before! And it's fun to see the looks I get when people see it!
I'm not a fan of peppers, but I can eat mini sweet peppers without gagging, so I get them periodically to see if my kids will eat them. Nope. So I'm stuck with them. I prefer them with Ranch dressing, but hummus will do. The gluten-free Snyder's Pretzel Sticks are my "reward." I don't like hummus much either...
And a Chobani Bite Coffee with Chocolate Chunk. Because, darn it, I'm worth it! (Plus it's only 100 calories and made of delicious.)
Breakfast for Baby
|Organic raspberries and apples, uncured ham, GF Snikiddy Ketchup "Fries;" organic tomatoes, purple broccoli, and snap peas, organic white/brown rice and quinoa mix w/shredded cheese, Chobani Champions yogurt tube (top photo)|
The small bamboo spoon (mine came from Pampered Chef) was for her grains and cheese mix. Gluten-free store-bought foods tend to either taste like cardboard, have little-to-no fiber, and/or are mostly white rice and starches to make them yummy. So I shore up our whole grains with a rice and quinoa mix I cook in large batches once a week. (It is 1:1:2 ratio of white rice, brown rice, and quinoa (white, red, or multicolored, whatever I feel like at the time,) before being cooked. I bought organic white rice on accident, so I'm slowly using it up.) The girls love it with melted cheese, so I was hoping that Baby would eat it, even though it was cold. She is inconsistent about eating cold cooked foods.
I also included some mini butterfly cutter ham (and possibly turkey... can't tell) leftover from our butterfly lunches earlier that week.
