Not only am I providing my son with nutritious home made food, but I'm also saving a lot of money!
My husband helped me with my baby food prep this week! I made yogurt, peas and beef this week/weekend. He kept telling me how awesome it was that I do this for our son and how much money I am saving us! (You're welcome, honey!) If I didn't have my husband cheering me on, I have to be honest, I'm not sure I could keep up with all I do! It's nice to know someone recognizes and cares!
As for the beef baby food, it was INCREDIBLY easy to make! You can use any cut of meat you want really. I used a bottom round roast because it was the most meat for the money. Season your meat any way you think would be best for your baby. I used Mrs. Dash because it's a nice blend of spices and all things I normally cook with.
You CAN do this! It's SOOOO easy!
Baby Food - Beef
1 1.5-2lb. Boneless Bottom Round Roast
1 tsp. Mrs. Dash Original Seasoning
1/4 cup water
Place your roast in the bottom of your crock. Sprinkle it with Mrs. Dash and then add your water to the bottom of the crock.
Cook on LOW for 7-9 hours or on HIGH for 3.5-4.5 hours.
Remove your roast from the crock.
Shred it a little bit and put pieces into your food processor.
Grind it into a powder.
Place about 2 heaping teaspoon fulls into snack sized baggies. This is about 2 servings.
I stick them into my deep freezer and take them out as I need them. I mix these with Gavin's veggies each evening.
