My 4-year-old started Pre-K this past September, which surely was such a change for all of us. He attends 5 days a week, till 1PM each day, which means I have to pack his lunch. If you follow Willy B Mum on Facebook and Instagram, you know that my husband and I promote very healthy eating habits, with a strong emphasis on an organic plant-based diet. My husband is a very talented cook, by passion. My Son follows a pescetarian diet, which resulted from my husband being a meat-eater, and me being quite the opposite not wanting him to eat animals at all. Our compromise was that our Son can eat seafood in his diet until he is old enough to make the decision as to his diet himself. However, when Miles Storm is with me, which is the majority of the time, he eats a mainly vegan diet which borders on vegetarianism at times.
When I think of chutney (also known as relish), it reminds of growing up in Australia when I was a very little girl. My Father would make these ham sandwiches with chutney, mayonnaise, cheese and salad. Of course, that was a very long time ago as I have not eaten any meat in over 26 years now but the memory still remains.
Today, while my toddler Son and I were in the produce section of our local supermarket, my eye caught these beauties. I had no idea what they were, and when I read the accompanying sign Dragon Fruit, I still had no idea? But fascinated, I picked them up and took the home with me anyway. Lately, I have noticed a lot of fruits and vegetables available in stores that I am not familiar with, which has sparked a curiosity to develop my palette of healthy foods available. Not just for me, but for my 3-year-old Son too.
Guacamole is a delicious & nutritious (ha, that rhymes) avocado-based dip that originated in central Mexico back in the day of the Aztecs who reigned between the 14th to 16th centuries. Basically, it is made by mashing avocado with variations of sea salt, tomato, garlic, lemon or lime juice, hot peppers, onion, herbs and seasonings.
