Eating like a baby!

****First let me note that this has NOTHING to do with the supposed “baby food diet” that Jennifer Aniston was on.****

This weekend I spent a lot of time with Jenny and Liam, and there was lots of food involved. Jenny feeds Liam super healthy, and he is at that age where he eats real food, not baby foods. We joked how we should eat more like him, then I realized, it’s not such a joke! You don’t give your baby garbage food because its bad for them, why do you give it to yourself?

Happy AND Healthy!

So I have decided to do One Month of EATING LIKE A BABY! What does this mean exactly? Well its a little blurry on the exact rules, because I’m kind of making them up…lol. Basically its the following:

1. SMALL PORTION  (ideally even cut up into small bite size pieces, even a sandwich)

2. LOTS OF FOODS IN ONE MEAL (have a little fruit, a little cheese, a little carb, a little veggies)

3. NO ARTIFICIAL INGREDIENTS (Real fruit, Unsweetened applesauce, plain yogurt, water)

4. LITTLE TO NO MEAT

5. LOTS OF VEGGIES (cooked or raw)

6. NO EXTRA FLAVOR (no butter, no oil, no sauces. Use fruit to add flavor to yogurt etc)

7. DRINK ONLY WATER (have less than 12 oz of milk a day)

8. PRE MAKE FOOD (always have cooked noodles, cooked veggies, cut up fruit on hand)

9. BRING SNACKS EVERYWHERE (mini muffins, dried fruit, wheat crackers)

10. EAT FOUR SMALL MEALS A DAY (eat all day long actually as long as it small amounts)

11. NO EATING OUT

12. STOP WHEN YOUR FULL (baby’s know this, so should we)

13. EAT WHEN YOUR HUNGRY (you will never find a baby starving itself, or skipping meals)

So that’s the basic jist of it. Pretty simple right? This will however mean not a lot of major meal cooking, but I do plan on posting all my food prep for yah! June 1st is the official start, but today I made this in preparation:

Watermelon and Cantaloup
