I know I have talked at nauseum about how real people deserve real food, but I think about it so much these days I believe it's becoming my new crusade. I am picturing in my head food for g-tube fed people with complete nutrition, ready to eat (though the g-tube). Like baby food on steroids, only fresher, better. A REAL alternative to formula from pharmaceutical companies. Hmmm.... (and just to clarify, I'm not talking about babies drinking formula, I am talking about 5 year olds, 15 year olds, 50 year olds getting their nutrition solely from formula... believe it, it happens. In fact, it's the norm.)
Anywho, yesterday I made sweet Dominic spinach, broccoli, green beans, apples, pears, and red bell pepper. We got the OK from his GI doctor to start introducing foods with sucrose, hence the apples and pears. I use as many organic ingredients as I can (Costco is great for this) because sweet man is having enough issues without introducing all those pesticides. I roast everything I can because it makes it taste better, in case he burps it up, and steam the rest. Here's some pictures from yesterday...
