delicious and healthy... with a twist!

Whatever your impression of quirky, trendy eaters, put it aside.  My friend forwarded me this recipe for applesauce - and it is FANTASTIC!  It's raw, which means it is maintaining all of it nutritive value for you and your kiddos.  (Also, it means that it's only good in your fridge for 3 -4 days.  But, mm, mm, mm worth it!)

3 apples
1 banana
4 dates (softened in water)
1/4+ water

Peel and core apples.  Put all ingredients into blender.  Puree.  Sprinkle with nutmeg or cinnamon.  3-4 servings.

Try it!  (And let me know what you think!)

mashed up avocado is a great first food. that's what i started amia on. also i mashed up bananas for her. a lot of people forget about avocados, but they have tons of nutrients and great healthy fats. good for both baby and mommy! :) loving and missing you!
