i havent really been able to get a clear answer about seeds, but sesame seeds are out for now. i think i'm going to ask if we can get a detailed list of things that the other little boy is anaphylactic to, i'd like to know if coconut is okay.
i'm trying to phase in pumpkin seed butter~it has a lovely mellow taste, if we can get past the 'green' issue :LOL . sunflower seed butter's been a no-go in the past, but i'm going to try it again
we cant do any dairy at all. i've even tried houston enzymes, but he's better staying off the milk, gluten, soy and corn. we also limit rice because it's been pretty constipating.
re meats, ds will only eat meat if it's freshly cooked, he wont eat it leftover, or cold. or if there is any fat on it at all. and only if it's been simmered, not bbq'd or sauteed or baked...
i'm thinking that i might try some quinoa mixed with a bit of rice, rolled up like sushi. i'm also thinking about making some muffins, using hemp seed flour, squash and stuff like that. and i'm thinking about trying him with some roast beef from the deli (if the ingredients check out)~i think he might try it anyways. and i keep meaning to make some dehydrated flax crackers. and the seed/energy ball thing too! i'm sure that'll go over well.
i've been sending trail mix type stuff, but he's not touching it.
the golden standards that he'll actually eat seem to be gala apple, fresh organic carrots (he wont eat conventional, he can tell the difference!
: ), plain sunflower seeds, banana, and grapes. i'd like to keep trying to build some flexibility into the menu though, so i'll keep trying to add more foods in.
i'm getting lots of great ideas, thanks mamas!
