Eating, eating, eating

They do such a good job sitting at the little table....

Until Anderson decides he's done...then watch out, the food and drinks start to fly! Oh wait, that's not just at the little table, that's at every table!

Despite the fork not being used in this picture, Anderson is actually getting really good with using his fork. He likes to clap after every successful fork used bite.

One of our favorites for breakfast are green smoothies. After every sip, Anderson says 'mmmm' and then goes in for more. He'll very quickly drink 8 ounces and want more! What a great way to get a lot of servings of fruit and veggies in them.

For those of you not familiar with green smoothies, they are smoothies with greens added (about 50% greens and 50% fruit). Spinach grinds up the best, but we've also used collards, kale and romaine. I tried mustard greens...not so tasty! I usually add either bananas or avocados as they seem to make it less frothy. You can find a lot of fancy recipes online. You can pretty much put anything...any fruits, any supplements etc. My favorite is spinach, banana and strawberry. I usually add some plain yogurt and a scoop of protein powder. Owen usually wants me to add blueberries...which is really good with peaches too!
