Friends of mine jokingly call me Tarzana. I tend to hoop and holler as the group runs through trails and jumps over trees. Everyone in the group earns a nickname sooner or later, and I am pleased with what the 'group' has chosen.
But Tarzana is feeling like raw sushi these days. I kind of flip back and forth between secret identities as the day unfolds. Meals have been less of a focus, when they should have been a HUGE focus. After all, it's when we are under the most stress, that we need the healing power of food, friends, and God.
I did happily discover that my lactose intolerant child likes Kefir. I mean, his system seems to like Kefir. I made Blueberry and Bannana smoothies using plain kefir,ice, maple syrup, and the above mentioned fruits. He did not experience nightmares, stomach cramps, or any other typical medical symptom. I am very excited to add one more item to his list of 'safe' foods.
Once, I had come across a recipe for raspberry 'bean' pie. Pinto beans were used, and what a great way to get a kid to eat his beans! It's actually fairly easy to make a rice flour pie crust too. I think I will have to hunt around again, as his protein sources are : eggs, goat cheese, peanuts, soy milk, walnuts, and pecans. I would like to see him expand a bit. Back to the kitchen!
