Quinoa meatballs! I have mentioned here before that my first born is on a very careful diet, which requires me to be very creative and open minded with his food. After all, the objective is delicious healing, nourishing and occasionally cleansing foods that the child will actually enjoy and look forward to eating, not limited, bland, boring meals.
These meatballs check all those good boxes without a doubt. They were made simply from a combination of fresh ground beef (not trimmed or lean, full fat), cooked (lightly salted) quinoa, free range eggs, onions, peppers, herbs, and salt to taste, and baked for about 30mins. They were accompanied by sauteed garden veggies cooked in tallow, bone broth, crayfish, herbs, and salt.
My son inhales these, and so many other foods within his current diet (which, by God's grace, is temporary). Once a picky eater, he now eats very cooperatively, is much more curious about and interested in food, and even has his favorites that he requests and does a little dance when he sees. Phew! We've come a long way y'all. There was a time I wasn't sure he'd ever eat anything other than Cerelac! 🤷 Lol. I'll tell you all about it some day soon, cause I'd love to help other mum's like me.
In the meantime have a peek at our typical lunch box, and feel free to check out @mygapslunchbox
for more. I lost scores of posts due to my recent phone reset (and my procrastination!), but I intend to resume posting there this weekend. And if you are a parent of a child with a diagnosis that requires a special diet, feel free to talk to me. I am learning too, educating and re-educating myself all the time, but I am always happy to share what little I know. ☺️ #gapsdiet #gutbrain #gutbrainconnection #developmentaldelay #propernutrition #gapsdiet #bodyecologydiet #ancestraldiet #brainhealth #physiological #gutandpsychology #guthealth #healthygut #gastritis #lactoseintolerance #autism #ADHD #aspbergers #candida #asthma #bodyecology #probiotics #intervention #gutbalance #recovery #wellness #healthykids
