So, this pregnancy hasn't been great on Scarlet's diet. She's been eating a lot of pantry foods because I haven't felt well enough to prepare fresh meats, fish and produce before they've gone bad. I keep trying but as the wilted kale, iffy looking cauliflower and random floppy English cucumber will tell you, I'm failing miserably. Yes I should freeze things, I know. Chalk that up to the fail too.
When it's meal time for Scarlet, her plate ends up filled with randoms like today's lunch feast of tater tots, cheese, crackers, a handful of frozen peas and popcorn. I tried to tell myself it was ok, they were organic tots as was the popcorn (which tastes like lightly flavored paper drizzled in olive oil). She did eat an apple, so that's something right? Scarlet wasn't thrilled with the rest of it.
After naptime I felt really guilty about her recent meals and decided the fresh air might curb my nausea so we headed to the market for some fresh produce. My poor nutrient deprived Beebs grabbed and chomped on whatever she could get her hands on. We left with a fresh fruit and veggie haul that looked like the rabbits got to it before it ever hit the bag. She devoured a (washed) nectarine, so we paid for the pit, took a big ole' bite out of a head of broccoli and nibbled a little nibble on each carrot in the bunch. I took them from her and tried to explain that we had to wash them first. Thus began a very persistent protest and chant "cahwutt, cahwutt, cahwutt!" Within an hour of washing there's only one carrot left!
