For the past week we have been trialing potatoes. From what I've heard from other FPIES mommies, they are an easy pass for most and opens up a whole new world of food choices. Luckily, they were a pass for us too!! Cutie Pie isn't too thrilled about the texture, but if I thin them enough or mix them with her zucchini (also officially a pass!) she chows down on them! I am so excited - this means we can now try stuff with potato flour, or try Checha puffs (cracker things made from potato), potato pancakes, the list goes on and on! I am so thrilled!
This week we are going to try beets. I have never in my life eaten or cooked a beet, but why not. They are supposedly packed with fiber and calcium and are a pretty red color. How many times have I heard you need to eat a rainbow of food to cover your nutrients? Probably a million. So a new color for Cutie Pie it is! Here is to hoping that she likes it and it is a pass too. We are on a roll right now!
