Yay for Potatoes!

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!
