As the proud mom of two babies...Okay, perhaps I should say toddlers at this point, one thing that can get awfully expensive FAST is baby food. Especially if you're like me and choose organic foods whenever possible! While I do buy some prepackaged foods, I also love to make my own baby food. There are a ton of advantages to making homemade baby food. For one, when making baby food in the comfort of your own kitchen, YOU are in complete control over what goes into the food you're preparing. No need to worry about fillers, chemicals, or preservatives. Another reason making homemade baby food is such a great idea is because it's very economical. Buying fresh ingredients and making large batches of food is a lot cheaper than buying prepackaged foods. And my favorite reason for making my own baby foods? I can get creative! My babies have pretty sophisticated palates, and I love exploring new flavor combinations. My daughter, who is about to turn 2 years old, loves spicy foods. (Weird, isn't it?!) I have actually made my own baby food using mild chilis, chicken, and veggie purees. My son, Xander, who is about to turn 1, loves Italian classics like spaghetti in meat sauce. He especially likes it when I make a puree of Roma tomatoes, ricotta cheese, spinach, and a hint of garlic. Yum!
I have been making all of my baby food my hand...So naturally, I have been drooling over The Original Baby Bullet for quite some time now. Luckily, I will have the chance to review this amazing system very soon!
