Welcome to another Munchkin Meals!
For those who requested it, here’s the link to my segment on FOX News Rising. Everyone there was so sweet and wonderful and I had a such a fun time!…despite shaking like leaf. Seriously. Can you tell?
Hailey is now 14 months old and still an adventurous eater. Fingers crossed she keeps it up! She’s at the point now where I can notice a higher grocery bill with feeding her. I attribute this to string cheeses, more Greek yogurt, and more frozen vegetables to keep on hand. I don’t mind in the least as long as she keeps eating it all!
Look familiar? Yes, I forgot to snap a picture. This is my breakfast, but it’s also pretty much Hailey’s. She eats an egg scrambled with peppers and onion and a little salsa stirred in for extra flavor. She loves fruit with breakfast and always has a whole banana and lately, half a clementine, too. Sometimes she’ll have a few pinches of the soft part of the bagel and always washes it all down with her milk.
Lately leftovers have been our best friend for lunch! I’ll use leftover roasted vegetables and brown rice to create a quick stir fry with olive oil. Other times, it’s straight leftovers, like leftover roasted sweet potato, roasted Brussels sprouts and steak. Roasted vegetables are definitely her preferred method of preparation. I can’t blame her; they’re delicious!
Hailey isn’t much of a meat lover. She’ll eat a few bites of chicken or steak before leaving it behind for more veggies. One exception is salmon. She’ll put away some salmon!
Snacks lately are string cheese or Greek yogurt and pomegranate arils. I love how easy these are to store and grab in a hurry, once you do the work of extracting them.
Dinners vary, but I’ve found a quick and healthy go-to, avocado pasta!
1 ripe avocado, mashed in a bowl with salt, pepper, lemon juice and a little olive oil + whole wheat pasta (I prefer elbow- perfect size for little fingers) and viola! Dinner. Hailey approved.
