Lovingly fill up your senses and fall into nature, especially if you’re tired in any way.  Little hands scoop sand with shells.  They fill little shoes, covering socks, dusted off for the ride home.  We’re happy with our morning of inhalations of fresh, sea air.  Record new stories invented in warm embraces at bedtime.  (Check back this year for bursts of our new book releases, for parent, child, friend, and everyone!)  Inhale love, sort, keep goodness, exhale love for the universe.  Let it roll out to sea on a white crested wave, and inspire a smile on a tired soul a shore away.

Cacao Chili

Warm yourself, with a deeply delicious meal, after fresh cool wanderings under the trees and by the sea. 

Non-GMO, organic, fresh, fresh garden / local, vegan ingredients:

Soak dried beans overnight in a large bowl of water.  (Buy organic beans in bulk to save money, time, & health.  We used:  Fava, Black, and Kidney.)  The next day, cook on medium low with water, perhaps add some more, and add a lid, stirring sometimes to prevent sticking.  Add 1 tsp Ras el Hanout, 1 tsp Cinnamon, 1 tsp Pepper, (No Salt for babies), 1 Chopped Sweet Onion, 1 Clove Garlic, and 1-2 tbsp 100% bar of Cacao.  (The onion, tomato sauce, & garlic sweeten the chili.)  Cook down until thick.  Serve warm when beans are al dente.  Sprinkle some fresh herbs and nutritional yeast over top and enjoy!

(Leave out Cacao for babies, as it’s a type of stimulant, and add 1 tsp & mix into adult bowlfuls.)  Enjoy every day until gone.  Chili ages deliciously!

An old, Italian peasant-style cooking trick from my ancestors:  To stretch a meal like chili, add in small amounts of diced (toasted/a few days old homemade) bread, crackers, or cornmeal, lots of vegetables using all of the (researched) edible parts for each plant, like stalks, leaves, roots, etc.  No waste and great taste for many people and/or meals.  This honours the time, energy, and beauty the plants took to grow.

Mashed steamed potatoes, beans, and freshly picked lettuce from the garden makes a lovely spring salad.

Banana Nut Pudding & Nut Cacao Stove Top Brownies

Non-GMO, organic, fresh, fresh garden / local, vegan ingredients:

A sweet, versatile baby-and-me dish that lends itself to any time of day.

These are the same recipe, except the cacao is not added for the baby’s banana nut pudding.  Make the recipe, serve baby, then add cacao for adults and serve.  Add any blend of nuts you like, fresh fruit, and oatmeal too for a cozy breakfast.  For a lovely dessert, add pumpkin seeds and a pinch of the blended nuts.

(Leave out salt for babies and low-sodium diets.  As always for all recipes, check for allergies first.)

Broccoli Salad

An almost cheesy broccoli baby & me snack for the afternoon that is warm, inviting, and gone in the time it takes to read one good story.

Non-GMO, organic, fresh, fresh garden / local, vegan ingredients:

Add cut up broccoli, celery, cauliflower, shallots, pepper, 1/8 C cornmeal, and water in a large skillet.  Steam with a lid, stirring often, until tender.  Serve warm with some nutritional yeast sprinkled on top.  Serve babies the softest parts, often times the florets unless the stalks were cut & cooked evenly.  (Leave salt out for babies.)

Apricot & Figgy Toast

A simple, sugar-free, baby-and-me snack is homemade sesame seed spelt bread, toasted for nut butters, natural fruit spreads, hummus, avocado, added into chili, and more!  

I’ll add this new bread recipe soon.  Most often we make delicious (gluten-free) crackers for the same use, which will be posted here soon, and we prefer this over bread.
