Celebrating Earth Day in the Kitchen

earth day, spring vegetables, real food for babies, take flight blogHappy Earth Day!  To celebrate, we're enjoying a gorgeous mix of late spring and early summer vegetables that I picked up from the farmers market this past weekend.  How lovely are the colors of these beauties?  I prefer to eat them raw because they are wonderfully tasty, which means there are a plethora of salads to be made this week.   Little R eats all of the veggies pictured as well.  I've found the easiest way to prepare them for him is by steaming using our Beaba Babycook.  I don't puree but simply chop them into small pieces because he prefers to pick up his food and feed himself (I just make sure they are soft and easily mash-able by his gums). earth day, real food for babies, spring veggies, solids for baby, take flight blog
