Maddie's Meals



Last weekend I headed to Detroit, Michigan to attend a Weston A. Price Conference to see how much more nutrition info I could pack into my brain.  As I have shared before, it is always great to be with like-minded people.  I am inspired when I attend these events and each time find myself feeling a little more confident in what I have already learned….meaning, I can actually follow what they are talking about!  The further I travel down this hallway of learning, I find there are more and more doors that need to opened…each door representing a new nugget of knowledge.  Believe me, sometimes this can be tiring and overwhelming; but most often, very exciting.
 
The Weston A. Price Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to “restoring nutrient-dense foods to the American diet through education, research and activism”.  It is an organization that is rapidly growing in numbers, as the general population becomes more and more educated about the de-generation of our food system over the years....all of which has led us to the poor health that we see all around us today.  As we are continually told...the time for change is now!  
 
While attending this conference, I took note of the diversity in those that surrounded me.  I was in the presence of physicians and nurses, nutritionist, business men and women, farmers...many people, both young and old.  The coolest part for me, was seeing the large number of young people who were attending.  Many of which, who had brought their young babies along with them.  It is inspiring to see this younger generation taking note of where we are presently with our food system and their desire to learn more.  They are the ones who need to be driven to make a change for their children and the generations ahead.  (Sorry, I'm sounding preachy again.)
 
Here's the fun part and how I can see this change happening in my own dear family.  Recently, I received a text from my niece who had a precious little baby earlier this year.
 
"Putting your cookbook to good use.  First round of Maddie food ready to go!  Organic apples and sweet potato puree!!  After the Butter Girl's post about the Dirty Dozen, this mama is going all organic!"
 
How awesome!  Naturally, as parents we are consumed with protecting our children.  Here is my beautiful niece learning to do that very thing...maybe because of some information that I have shared!  Or who knows...maybe she just said that to make me feel good...if that be the case, I'll take it.  Because at the end of the day, what really matters is that she is indeed taking that extra effort to make a difference in her sweet Madoline's life.  What a great start for a beautiful life.

  1. Is there a big difference in making your own baby food and buying the organic pre-packaged baby food? (Besides cost)

    Oh, have you seen the mesh feeders they sell for babies? I love them!

    1. Hmmm....I'll have to take a look at the labeling Olivia. I would imagine the pre-packaged baby foods would have some sort of preservative in them to prolong shelf life?

      The beauty of preparing your own food, is that you will know exactly what is and isn't going in to the foods that you are giving to your little ones.

      A mesh feeder? Sorry...sounds like something that you would use to feed chickens? lol...you will have to explain that one to me. :D

    2. Very true. Guess I should look at the label, duh!

      And a mesh feeder, lol ---> http://www.amazon.com/Munchkin-Pack-Fresh-Feeder-Colors/dp/B000GK5XY2

      You can put a big chunk of avocado or banana or whatever for your little one without them choking. They can chew and suck on it themselves.

Supps To Fuel Your Busy Day

A good place to start... This is what I will call my supplement sandwich...the sups I take every day; the crack to my action packed days.  lol Equi-Fem,  a great multi-vitamin for women...and for my guys out there,  Pro-Multi Plus  would be a good choice for you.  Read the ingredient list...nothing but pure goodness. If you want to be prepared to fight off those nasty cold and flu germs that are floating all around us this time of year, this little goodie is a must-have.  Since taking Bio-Immunozyme Forte , I have been able to successfully dodge all of those nasty colds I so often used to be plagued with.  I remember a friend saying, "Your sick again?!"  Well, not anymore.  This Multi supports normal, healthy immune function so you can fight off those bad germs like a champ! If I do start to feel like a cold is trying to set up camp in my body, I take an extra Bio-Immunozyme Forte for a couple of days and my symptoms quickly go away.  Victo

GARDEN BRUSCHETTA PIZZA

I have been inspired to create this blog, as a sort of 'branch' to my original blog... Marital Status: W .  I don't want others to think that my life is all about grief and sadness...I am forging forward with this new passion my Rick lovingly shared with me....health and wellness.  I am exploring options and opportunities that will enable me to share my previous love affair with food in a more nutritious and appealing fashion.  I am still an avid foodie, I am just a foodie in transition. I was a little surprised when my post entitled, Butter Girl Goes Organic had more views than many of my other posts.  When I shared this with my vibrant hairdresser; she replied, "Well yeah, people probably think it is something kinky!"  Really??  Call me naive, but that never crossed my mind and honestly, I don't like to think of what that could even possibly mean!  Oh well, I like to pretend it is because others have an interest like mine...creating lifestyle changes a
