I am constantly trying to feed my children whole foods. If you’re reading this, I’m pretty sure you are too. There are a couple neat baby food “steamers, purée-ers, and blenders”. I say let them stay at the store. You already have what you need to feed your baby real, whole foods. (I always wait until 6 months+ before attempting any food other than breast milk.) My parents made every ounce of our baby food. By this I mean they smashed or blended what they made for dinner that evening. Not all together you silly goose, only feed baby one food at a time until they are older. This way if there’s a reaction you can pinpoint which food it was. Here’s my secret baby food recipe :

  • Take one food (Here I opened a can of organic great northern beans)
  • Rinse the food
  • If necessary steam or bake the food
  • If necessary large chop the food
  • Dump into the food processor (mine is a tiny one)
  • Add mamas magic sauce (breast milk) (you could also use water to thin it)
  • Pulse until the texture you are looking for

THATS IT!!!! Made to much? Pour it into an ice cube tray and freeze for later. BAM!!! You just made a gaunt batch of baby food. No preservatives. No junk. Just whole food awesomeness. Here are some fun combos we love :

  1. Pumpkin + bananas
  2. Avocado + bananas
  3. White beans + pears
  4. Carrots + applesauce
