GCC Recipe Swap


Before I do anything else I just want to pat myself on the back for getting this post up on time. I've been having a hard time over the past weeks sticking to my own schedule so "pat, pat".

Ok....moving on.

I pulled this recipe out of the "when I used to be young and had little babies" archive. We used to puree and freeze our own baby food out of fresh produce when we were young parents. It was nothing but veggies or fruits and water, pureed and froze in ice cube trays for easy storage. When it was meal time we just reheated the food and the kiddos slurped it down. It felt good to know what they were eating. But even before that we made our own first baby cereal out of un-chemically-treated ingredients. So for those of you still sportin' a baby on your hip (I really do miss those days) here's a very simple way to insure that you know exactly what you're feeding your baby.

Homemade Baby Cereal

Use an electric coffee or spice grinder and grind up a bit of organic brown rice, lentils, oats or other grains of your choice until powdered. Cook in a little water and serve. Nothing you can't pronounce in THOSE ingredients!

I recognized those cubes right away! They are so much better than the other stuff and not so hard to make! Thanks!

I don't have kids yet, but I definitely plan on making their food when we do. I think it's incredibly important and a great way to get their taste buds off to the right start!

I'm sharing a healthy, whole wheat corn muffin recipe this week. Enjoy!

I've recently started adding lentils to everything I can! What an easy to add them into a baby's diet too.
