What Marlowe Eats

black eyed peas with veggies, cooked mexican style, rice, spanish potatoes. 

salad**, creamy sofrito potato soup, with avocado and toast.

It's been a while... 1. I constantly forget to take pictures of our meals. 2. You've seen a few meals throughout our brunchday or things on toasts post, without me really mentioning it. 3. A lot of meals are repeats (of course) so they don't feel worth it for me to photograph. BUT, here we are: what marlowe eats! To see more of our recent meals.. click the link to go behind the cut! Bon appetit! 

black bean soup with avocado-- she would eat this everyday if she could.
creamy pasta with peas. 
sweet plantain and pinto bean stew
skillet corn and peas, fried tofu, homemade bbq sauce. 
took the bbq sauce, marinated some veggies and chickpeas, roasted, served over mashed potatoes. 
mushrooms, peas, cherry tomatoes, onions, yada yada, pasta.
butternut squash ravioli, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, and greens. basically this, with mushrooms and ravioli 
mushroom soup. This was a very surprising hit for her. She couldn't get enough. I think she ate three to four bowls in one sitting. Wowzers. 
"orange soup" carrot and sweet potato soup. 


**We're about 60/40 with the salad eating. It's usually only greens, nothing else. At this point, the determining factors are: what time of greens (must be somewhat easy to chew), the type of dressing I make (can't be "too spicy" with ginger or garlic), and of course: her mood.

  2. Her food looks healthy and delicious at the same time! Such colourful and creative meals, instead of the usual plain and dull meals. Great job mum! ;)

    1. dude... no... like, I should call these "what he ohdeardrea house eats" now, cause these are what I make for both of us. Before I tweaked the meals a little for her, now I don't.

  5. How do you feel about all of the negative press that tofu and soy products get? My daughter loves tofu but after a new report the other day I am not sure I will continue to give it to her.

    1. Do you have a link to that article?

    2. I don't listen to it. Every few months there are reports about something. coffee is good! coffee is bad! wine is good! wine is bad! soy is good! soy is bad! red meat is good! red meat is bad! It's all rubbish. Everything in moderation. We almost never eat processed fake meat-soy products (though I was craving them for that friend tofu meal), so thats on our side. For soy, its really only our vegan butter and cheese... and then the occasional tofu, but even tofu is usually once a week, every two weeks. If you look at other countries, where soy is a major staples in diet (asia) you can see their cancer, heart disease, and cholesterol rates are significantly lower... it's your diet as a whole, not one thing, moderated, that will get you :)

    3. No, I use to post a lot of articles in the past in my "diet water" section, but without time to actually browse the web, all that fell to the wayside. I'm sure if you google it, you can find A LOT of info about it. The key is to find unbiased soy articles--- or food articles in general. Anything backed by major corporations, dairy farmers (factories) or whoever else is gong to be completely biased and money driven. Good luck! just go with your gut! If you don't feel comfortable giving your kid soy, then don't! :)

    4. Good points. As a coffee lover (and tofu) I totally understand what you mean. And gah, it's such an easy meal!

  6. OMG I can't wait to buy your cookbook.

  7. All of this looks so delicious. I haven't been brave enough to try plantains yet, I keep imagining that they would have a banana flavor. Can you share the plantain & pinto stew recipe?

    1. ugh i love you. i still gag every time I have to peel a banana for marlowe, but plantains, are much different. Fry em up, eat them with toast and avocado, and I swear, you'll most likely ;) love them.

      One day!

    2. bananas are the grossest fruit.

      my afternoon grocery store list:
      -plantains
      -avocado

      throwing it on toast like you said, because now it's a pregnancy blamed craving that will not get out of my head! do you think there is a big difference between frying them in coconut oil or olive oil?

      Delete
    3. dont fry in olive oil! coconut might be fine, never tried it.. but it has to be a high heat oil like canola :)

  8. I have to remind myself not to look at your food posts when I've just woken up and am hungry. Wahhh. It's all I want now.

  9. can you post the recipe for the mushroom soup? I LOVE mushrooms but my husband isn't the biggest fan. Maybe he could handle them more when pureed? As a vegan who hopes to have a baby in the next couple years, I am very inspired by what Marlowe eats :)

  10. my kids have been on a huge salad kick these days. i've slowly been adding in various veggies. no complaints yet.

  11. You are some sort of kitchen wizard, I swear. I wish I had that gift. Quite sure my son would love 96% of the things you make, if only I knew what the hell I was doing. I just am not creative in that area, but you inspire me to try! Also, where do you take your food pictures? When I try, they are dark and boring and even I don't want to look a them. Any tips?

    1. This has been one of my bigger challenges. Because her lunch time meals, she eats at daycare, and her breakfast is whatever... by the time dinner time comes, the lightning sucks. I just find the brightest light in the house, which is usually M's little art/breakfast table and snap the photos there, because our table-table is darkkk at night.

  12. I adore these posts. They give me inspiration for feeding my two-year old, and I just get so darn happy whenever I see other little ones eating so healthfully!

    I must say I'm impressed that Marlowe eats so much "mixed-up food." I usually prepare things just like I do for myself, but then sometimes my daughter rejects it until I segregate things a bit on her plate - then she'll chow down.

    I also find my kid loves to eat from the cutting board, just like I did as a child. I can't say I remember loving raw ginger or onions, but hey - I'll encourage whatever she's into! :)

    1. It's funny, Ive thought about this a lot... when I see most kids meals they are all separated... but that rarely works in this house.. one it's a pain for me... two, I find I can get a ton more veggies in her belly if it's all jumbled together.

      Ad yeah! they are much more tempted to try it when you're preparing it! It's cute :)

  13. Just curious if you use dried beans or canned? I never really choose dry beans at the market, but your food posts make me want to get down to the basic essence of food.

    1. canned. I've had many attempts with dried beans and I can never get them to the consistency I'd like, so I stick with canned, though it would be nice (and cheaper) to use dry!

  14. You are so creative in the kitchen! (and in all aspects of your life) I wish I had your cooking skills!

  15. I wish Hux liked food as much as your little.
    He's become so picky & would rather have a smoothie over real live whole foods.

    SIGH.

  16. I am jealous. My child refuses to eat anything that requires a spoon, such as soup, yogurt, and I really wish she would because it's so darn yummy. If you can't fork it, you can forget it in our house. :(

    1. M def. has her moments... and actually, we're kind of the opposite. It's easier for me to convince M to eat something with a spoon... fork foods are a harder sell.
