Recipe of the Day for infants~ Chicken Thighs with Zucchini and Sweet Potatoes #Nourished #wapf

Organic Blue Goose chicken thighs simmering away in homemade bone broth seasoned with thyme and a dash of Himalayan sea salt, Stirling butter with zucchini and sweet potatoes and a little spill of organic cream from Liberté Dairy

I make bone broth daily. We go through it like you wouldn’t believe.  In fact bone broth was my twins first food. Bone broth is good for digestion, brain health, immune health and so much more.  I was in awe as I read through Super Nutrition for Babies and Gut and Psychology Syndrome.
It is nourishing and actually helps protect & develop tummy lining. All that gelatin goodness! I cook their veggies in it for extra nutrition.  I’m all about gentle foods when it comes to infant nutrition and full fat goodness.
I don’t really follow recipes too much as I usually whip something up.  I modify as I go along but in a nutshell here’s what to do.
In a pot add 1tbsp of butter on low heat add 1 chopped zucchini and 1 one chopped sweet potato.  Do get organic whenever you can.
Sautée a little(like 5 min) and add some stock(1/2 cup) that covers the veggies and add your organic Blue Goose chicken thigh(I used just one).  Add a little sprinkle of thyme and a dash of high quality sea salt(great for extra minerals and I recommend Himalayan sea salt-omit salt if you do not have high quality sea salt) 
Cook gently on low and add more stock slowly if needed, do watch that the stock doesn’t evaporate away. You will need to add a little more.  After cooking about 15min, I then transfer to my blender add some unsalted butter.  I blend it and leave it a little chunkier as my twins are 11 months old.  Transfer to a bowl and add maybe 1/2 tsp of fresh organic cream.  My twins gobbled this up.  
It was a lovely healthy nourishing dinner.

It’s great to have it cooking as it’s so nutritional and when you’re too tired just add some more veggies puree and who can have a whole other meal.

Enjoy.

    I used to make homemade baby food for my daughter. I made something similar with Kabocha squash and chicken.

    That looks really yummy! And the idea of zuchini with sweet potatoes is really apetizing for me, too. Not just for an infant!

    I never tried to make baby food and I’m not sure why. It’s easy enough!
