What Are You Into This Month?

This Month...The Book I Am Really Into (or one you want to get into!): The book I want to be into is Super Baby Food by Ruth Yaron...this manual/cookbook/reference guide is packed with detailed information on homemade baby food, nutritional data, feeding schedules, cooking techniques, recipes, and other invaluable feeding tips. Yaron builds her compelling argument for making baby food at home on the simple premise that food profoundly impacts health, especially when an infant's developing digestive tract is involved. Parents will learn why babies should start out on rice porridge, bananas, avocados, and sweet potatoes before advancing to more difficult-to-digest foods such as wheat cereals and milk products. While Yaron's passionate stance and vegetarian bias may turn off some parents, others will be grateful for her strict attention to potentially harmful additives and chemicals. No matter what their eating philosophy, most parents will appreciate the economy and surprising ease of making baby food at home. This is not gourmet cooking; all you have to do is learn how to boil water and operate a blender. For veggies, simply steam some vegetable chunks and blend. For baby porridge, just grind some whole grains in a blender and boil. It's that simple. And when you're feeding your baby, simple is best. --Sumi Hahn
I loaned this book out, and am desperatly wanting to read it. Savannah is really starting to take an interest in solids (read: pulls platefulls of spaghetti off in her lap during dinner prayer).

Magazine I Really Liked: No Greater Joy A free magazine about Child Training, Family Relationships, Homeschooling, and Bible Training by Micheal and Debi Pearl

What I'm Most Looking Forward To Next Month: Christmas of course!! Christmas shopping..not so much. I have a list, so I guess I should stop procrastinating and get going. I bought hubby's gift yesterday. (Thanks Kelli)

I made most of my two older boys baby food. Fruits and veggies, but never the rice cereal. I just bought organic. Very cool!!
