introducing new foods: quinoa

so far we only introduced one grain, oat bran, to k so we figured it was time to try another. i’ve been a fan of quinoa (*see recipes i’ve tried and information about quinoa ) and i was happy to find out that it is gluten free. quinoait should be safe for k, despite her allergies so we decided to introduce quinoa to k.

quinoa has been really hot the last few years so it is easy to find. i already had Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Organic Tricolor Quinoa at home so I started k off with that brand. later i found Ancient Harvest Gluten Free Organic Quinoa Flakes that you didn’t have to was and cooked faster, which was great since it cut down the prep time.

introducing new foods: sweet potato / yam

another vegetable in the orange color family – yummy power food sweet potato / yam. you can dilute if you want but it really doesn’t need it. baked sweet potato and yams are so soft it can be enjoyed alone.

i did some research on sweet potatoes vs. yams. the two are not actually from the same family but both are power foods and have lot of nutrition. the orange color vegetable are sweeter vs. the yellow color vegetable is not as sweet. there are also purple color ones but i have yet to try them!
