It was a weird week. For two days the three of us were stuck inside with the dog because of the snow. But I was thrilled to be cocooned in the house, nice and safe.
When my son gets sick, he stops eating well…I’ll tell my tale of woe below…
I organized our lunches by day since we ate some meals together! (for new readers, it’s all gluten-free/dairy-free because of our tummies)
Corn pasta, salmon (baked with salt and olive oil), peas, sliced pears, applesauce, chocolate coconut milk yogurt, bar
His caregivers told me that he didn’t eat everything. I know that when we made the salmon on Sunday night, he couldn’t stop eating it. Oh well. The daycare menu was ground beef, hash browns, diced pears, diced carrots with fruit and cheese and crackers for snacks. I don’t object to those foods, but since I have seen them I know that the hash browns are not fresh, but oval-shaped and the fruit and veggies come from cans lined with BPA.
I poured my soup into a microwaveable container at work (The “fuel” container is not microwaveable). I bet it would hold the warmth inside for a few hours, but I don’t have time in the morning to heat up my soup before I leave for work. Little known fact — keep the pit in the avocado because it slows its browning! At work, I just dug out the avocado with my spoon.
Again he didn’t eat very well, but it sounded like he did better than he did at home. Even though he’s eating different food than his friends, he has always eaten better there than at home regardless of illness. Never underestimate the power of peer pressure. His friends at daycare ate ground beef with pasta and tomato sauce, diced pears, peas, with snacks of fruit and ice cream.
