Vegan MoFo Day 5

No, we didn't eat Rowan for lunch today, although he does sometimes look very edible as you can see from the photos. I was just uploading photos and thought these from yesterday needed to be blogged about. I was reading tofu mom's post and thinking about my kids, what they eat, and their health. Rowan is 19 months old now, and eats all sorts of things. Here is what he ate yesterday while sporting his "Herbivore" shirt.

Breakfast: Blueberry Banana Muffin (I used the banana choc. chip muffin recipe from The Joy of Vegan Baking but subbed blueberries for choc. chips and cut the sugar down since I was sending one with Athena to school and didn't want her bouncing off the walls. I also added a few scoops of chia seeds just for kicks.)

Snack: Spicy Nori strips, crackers and raisins

Lunch: Bagel with roasted red pepper hummus

Snack: O's, blueberries and strawberries

Dinner: Black bean burritos (whole wheat tortilla, black beans, rice, cream cheese {we were out of our usual cheez substitutes and the kids go crazy over them}) side of peas

To drink, Rowan has mostly water and still nurses when he pleases, usually a couple times per day and a couple more at night.

He is a thriving 19 month old, talking up a storm, happy, healthy and strong. So sock it to you all you non believers. Vegan kids rock!
