Breakfast

  • fried egg
  • chicken+apple sausage (cut down)
  • avocado with a little olive oil and lemon juice
  • strawberries

Lunch

  • modified Cobb salad:
  • chicken
  • spinach

  • avocado dressing

Dinner

  • ground beef with tomato and green bell pepper
  • cabbage and asparagus

What Al Ate

  1. At breakfast, he ate the strawberries first, then some egg, then some sausage. He left the avocado. 
  2. For lunch, he really just ate a few bites of chicken. As a snack, he had part of my Lara bar (dried cherries, crushed almonds and cashews). We did a small egg hunt in the backyard, and two of his eggs had raisins and about 8 chocolate chips. So he ate that as well (yes, a treat!).
  3. Dinner, he only ate a few bites of ground beef.
  4. We are still in a food strike, it seems. (In these times, I just nurse him more than usual. He drinks water or maybe juice, though he’s only had juice about 5 times ever. And if he is hungry, I trust that he will eat in a day or two.)

BEGINNERS

Besides a possible egg or strawberry allergy, this is all okay for 6 months and up. Avocado? I would slice the avocado half with the skin still on so that baby has something to grip! Additionally, sausage is a choking hazard because it’s circumference and firmness is similar to that of a grape, and grapes are a major choking hazard. But grapes are fine when they are cut down in size, so a sausage is fine if you cut it down. I cut it in half lengthwise, then again into smaller pieces. For a younger baby, I might just cut an entire sausage down the middle twice (quartered) and let her/him have the whole “strip”. Keep Reading!...

Breakfast

  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 hash brown muffin-thingy (potato + egg)

I’m working on a new recipe right now, but since it isn’t perfect, I don’t want to share it just yet. I am trying to figure out how to keep the potato crispy without taking forever in the oven! Either way, Alexander didn’t really eat much of the breakfast today. He ate the potato part off the muffin-thingy and finished most of the banana half. Keep Reading!...
