What Everett Eats V.2

Everett goes through so many stages of liking things and not liking other things. He'll eat a lot of weird veggies and then not touch some other things and then change his mind about them a couple months later. I'm sure this is pretty normal, but sometimes I can't wait for him to be able to talk and tell me exactly what he likes and doesn't like!
One dish that I'm very happy with is a super easy tomato basil cucumber salad (fourth picture down). This kid will eat bowls of this stuff, and I like it too! The recipe is posted at the bottom.

Lunch: Hummus, Crackers, and Swiss Chard

Lunch: Cheese, crackers, baby tomatoes, and asparagus

Dinner: Peas & Carrots, Turkey, and oyster crackers

Dinner: Vegetarian baked beans, cheese crackers, and tomato basil cucumber salad

Breakfast: Agave sweetened granolla with naturally sweetened yogurt, strawberries, and blueberries

Tomato Basil Cucumber Salad
  • One cucumber, diced
  • Four or five Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1/4 cup of white vinegar
  • 1/3 cup of olive oil
  • One Table spoon of dried basil 
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
Combine everything into a large container and let marinade until you need it.
These are just estimated amounts so just experiment with what you like and make it your own like sometimes I add banana peppers or onions.

  1. Hi Liz,

    I am so proud of you for giving little Everett such a healthy diet. He is learning to like a lot of different foods, too.

    Good for you!

    Love, Grammy
