Wow she was tired, she nursed for maybe 3 mins and fell asleep!
Anyway, she didn't really start to eat solids until she was around 15 months old. I'd offer, she'd play with the food sometimes eat some but that was all. I never did the jarred processed to death baby food thing. You ever smell that stuff? Yuck!
With the walnuts I'd smoosh them till they were in little tiny pieces, no fear of choking. Pecan the same way. Almonds I didn't start giving to her until recently because they are a very dense nut and can be hard to digest. I only give her them when she asks for them. They really need to be chewed good, and she simply doesn't do that.
Raw pumpkin seeds and raw sunflower seeds we eat also. I can only get them at Wild Oats, and that's 45 mins from my house unfortunately. Our halloween pumpkin seeds were washed off a little bit then put on the dehydrator.
Oh, that's another thing we do, for a change of pace when we want something crunchy, I dehydrate zucchini, cucumber, beetroot, turnip. We have interesting crunchy chips for when the mood strikes.
She's not 100% raw because I trust her body to know what it wants. If she asks for a vegan sausage, or rice or noodles or whatever I figure there must be a reason so she gets it. I just follow her lead.
We don't eat sprouts, btw. Toxic.
I do have olive oil, but only Spectrum Organic's COLD PRESSED olive oil. Other olive oil is heated up when it is processed, and it changes the structure of the oil. Spectrum does not have heat, either from the machinery or from the pressing process. I use olive oil sometimes to make raw soups dressings have a bit more texture to them. Oil without the rest of the olive isn't very good for you, I maybe use a tablespoon every few days for example.
A favorite thing my dd and I do every day is juice something. She has no idea that grape juice or orange juice can come out of a carton. She will bring an orange or some grapes to me and say she wants juice. She helps by pushing the fruit into the juicer
Ive never juiced vegetables, well, I tried once and it just doesn't taste right to me.
She also drinks soymilk sometimes, but mostly water.
I think you are doing something so very awesome, by having the triplets start out in life with healthy food! I think its so important! Every parent I've ever seen in the store has a cart full of Little Debbies, or chips or or other stuff, nothing fresh and alive, nothing that will enrich their little growing bodies.
Oh, an example recipie section from that book is at http://www.shazzie.com/products/sdd/recipes.shtml
