Zucchini, Day One

We are finally over the sickness.  After blood work and a catheter to check for a UTI our pediatrician thinks it was probably the flu.  Cutie Pie is still holding strong and tolerating the avocados.  Last night she ate almost HALF of one!  She is still pooping normally and is back to sleeping most of the night.  Yay for being in a good place!   We decided it was time to move on to another green vegetable.  After much debate over which one to try next, zucchini came up as the winner.  We ultimately decided we would like to trail as many fruits/veggies that can be grown in our summer garden as possible before it is time to plant.  It would really cut down on our grocery budget if we can grow some of Cutie Pie's safe foods on our own!  Organic produce is so expensive and this new elimination diet (no rice, oats, dairy, soy, corn, peanuts) is reaking havoc on our food budget, so we figured any bit will help.  

Anyway, it has been right at two hours since Cutie Pie ate her first three bites of zucchini.  I steamed it and pureed it in our wonderful Magic Bullet (God's gift to our kitchen!).  It is actually a really light green color and smells pretty decent. Cutie Pie wasn't too thrilled about it.  I guess it is quite a different taste/texture from the creamy avocado she is used to!  So far, so good.  Cutie Pie has been napping for about two hours already and no unusual business going on.  Woohoo! We still have a ways to go before calling it a success obviously but at least I'm not covered in puke yet....
