|Buy cheaper produce. Rely heavily on onions, celery, carrots, potatoes, apples, bananas, butternut squash, etc. Buy the 'fancy stuff' only when it's in season.|
I tried making my own baby food w/Grace and it was just nasty... I don't know what I did wrong... I got a book and everything! I just couldn't get it to taste right. So we bought the "Earth's Best" baby food.
My biggest challenge is buying organic and still pleasing DH. He's a meat and potatoes type of guy and I don't know how to incorporate healthy meals. It's too expensive to buy two seperate things of groceries. But I want him to like the food and be happy too! :
This is great. Sorry to hijack - but in planning meals using organics/wholefoods - what do people use as a general staple list of pantry supplies? I want to get my pantry re-stocked so that I only have to buy fresh produce for the week, and do the pantry shop about once a month. Is this a good way to do it? (please tell me if I should repost this elsewhere - sorry huskermommy if I derailed !)

I just wanted to add that if you are exclusively breastfeeding you can wait to introduce foods untill they are able to "feed themselves". I rarely made baby foods that involved mashing and straining and waited till the baby could just eat chopped, cooked veggies. Then you may be able to afford organic produce for your whole family instead of just baby sorry if someone already mentioned this, I scrolled through the post quickly.
