High-Cal Food Chronicles: Scrambled Eggs

Scrambled eggs are one of the easiest foods to doctor. They taste better once you add all the cream, cheese, etc... and you can add healthy stuff without making them gross!

I've been making Joseph's morning egg this week using:

1 farm's market pastured egg, lightly beaten
1 T organic heavy cream
1 oz organic white colby cheese
1 oz organic frozen chopped spinach

I put all of this in a microwave safe dish (I use a big ramekin), cover it up with little plate (no plastic in the microwave, please!) and microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir, put it in another 30 seconds, stir, and one more 30 second shot. Fluffy, yummy, cheesy goodness.

Of course, half the time he doesn't want it. The kid is such a finicky eater! But I got my quarterly reassurance by checking out's page on toddler feeding. She made a great point:

"All you need to do is to continue to offer foods. Don't worry if he's not interested or takes very small amounts. Your only true responsibility is what you offer, when you offer it and how you offer it, not whether or not he eats it. That has to be up to him. Trying to force, coax, or cajole your child into eating is never recommended. Continue to nurse on demand, day and night, and trust your child to increase the solids when he's ready. As baby slowly moves into eating more solids, your milk will fill any nutritional gaps nicely."
