What’s so great about tahini?
I love tahini ♥ I use it in my shakes, hummus, salad dressings & in my babyfood (when I made babyfood, seems like ages ago now!:)
Tahini is a superfood. It is a sesame seed butter. It has served me and my family well. Tahini contains healthy essential fats, loads of calcium, iron, protein, magnesium, Vitamin-E, Vitamin-B and more. I recommend organic unhulled raw tahini. (Hulled tahini does not use the whole sesame seed. As a result there is less calcium, protein and vitamins). I don't ...
What are Chia seeds?
In Mayan, Chia means strength and has over 3000 years of history as an ancient revered crop. Chia was considered more valuable than gold to the Aztecs. Its amazing nutritional profile makes it a near complete food, providing essential protein, fats and carbohydrates as well as a wide array of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
Chia is one of the highest plant based omega-3 sources, outperforming even flax seeds. It is therefore a wonderful anti-inflammatory food.

Why do we all need healthy fats?
I recommend putting essential fat into your baby's every meal. It is extremely important. I always try to make good fat a part of every meal in my home.
I recommend that both babies and mum and dad take omega-3's every day both from the animal kingdom and plant kingdom. Let me explain:
I recommend giving babies from 6 months old, coldpressed organic omega-3 oils like:

Vitamin-C for children
♥ I recommend ascorbic acid
As an antioxidant, Vitamin-C is an incredible antiviral agent, that can help keep our immune system strong and healthy. Viruses cannot survive in a vitamin-C rich environment. When you or your children are sick I recommend taking Vitamin-C around 3 times a day if possible. Vitamin-C is non toxic but too much can cause loose bowels. You can buy organic vitamin-C tablets for children in health food stores. You can also buy Vitamin-C in powder form to mix in ...
What is spelt?
Spelt is an ancient grain, with a deep, nutlike, slightly sweet flavor, that traces its heritage back long before many wheat hybrids. Many of its benefits come from the fact that it offers a broader spectrum of nutrients compared to many of its cousins in the wheat family, and the fact that it is more easily digested than other gluten grains since it is water soluble.
Spelt was originally grown in Iran around 5000 to 6000 B.C. It has been grown in Europe for over 300 years, and in ...

Reviews for What should I feed my baby?

Not only are the recipes easy to follow and the food amazingly good and healthy, but the book itself is also beautiful to look at and full of useful information. Since I'm a big chocolate lover my favorites are the French chocolate cake and the healthy delicious raw chocolate mousse.....yum yum. When I hear of someone having a baby the ...
