They're great because they can be free of additives, be pure food, and since they are pureed, they are easy on a sensitive digestive system while still containing those coveted enzymes we look for in fresh raw fruits and vegetables. Well, baby food can get old real fast, so I played with a variety of flavors to "grow them up" a little bit.
This grown up peach puree is a favorite of mine as it's cool and refreshing, and with a hit of ginger is calming to the belly. The tastes are more mature and you don't feel like an overgrown baby eating it....I promise.
They are so simple to make and they make a good healthy grab and go breakfast, or snack all throughout the week. I make them all up on a weekend, and then store them, covered in individual glass dishes, taking one out each day.
Anything I can do to make my meals simple and easy throughout a busy week is awesome in my book!
They are congestors, but without grain. They are the kind of congestor that is GREAT for little sick ones as they can thicken up diarrhea and slow vomiting or are a great first food after being sick.
These muffins fit the builder and congestor categories, even though they are made with APPLES ( an eliminator) the apples are baked and provide a reductive sugar through cooking and so become a congestor. Pair with fresh orange juice, green juice, and sliced fruit to provide a balanced Food FX snack or meal.
