|Black bean pattie and potato salad|
|Asparagus risotto and a new way to use a spoon|
|Chickpeas with rice and dill|
|Steamed broccoli, baked breaded oyster mushroom & potato+sweet potato oven fries. And he's eating the potato of course.|
|Gorgeous "last minute" meal: Black bean and corn quesadillas (made with homemade vegan queso and whole wheat tortillas) ->a big green salad would be great with this but we were so hungry we couldn't wait|
|Basmati rice, black eyed peas with oregano and yellow pepper (he didn't even touch the pepper))|
|Red lentil & veggie soup made by my mom (this was really good). Oh and when I served this to my boy, he mimed my spoon-spin-to-make-the-soup-get-colder and then he ate using his spoon like a sir!!! (Still made a mess though)|
|Roasted veggies, spanakopita & broccoli (he just had the spanakopita and baked potatoes and fed the rest to the doggie...I kept asking myself why? I thought broccoli was his favourite!)|
|Spinach rice and quinoa with bread (Now this is his favourite...he had some with his spoon and the rest with his hands...then he had a second plate)|
|Leftover spinach rice and quinoa with boiled potatoes and radikia (=greek greens) <-he had the spinch thing of course, a little bit of the potatoes and threw the greens on the floor|
Nereus has been a weird picky eater since his 1st birthday. The one day he LOVES asparagus and the next day he doesn't even want to see them. I'm offering a big variety of foods everyday and if he won't eat his beans, for example, I'm offering them later in a different form or offering another protein rich food. If he still won't eat it, I try not to panic and let his insticts guide the whole situation.
This works about 99.9% of the times. Things get bad when some of my relatives insist that this way (vegan and/or baby led weaning) I neglect my baby and try to make me feed him meat. Oh, with a spoon of course!* Even like this I have managed to never force him to eat anything or anyway. The worst thing that happens those times is that I lose my faith often and seek for confirmation on my books and internet.
Hey are there any vegan and/or baby led weaning mamas reading this blog?
I'd love to hear from you!
DON'T FORGET TO VOTE FOR US IT'S SUPER SIMPLE
*I have NO problem with non vegan and non baby led weaning parents and babies and people in general. It just annoys me when they don't respect my way of life.
