A few weeks back I had a consult with Melanie Silverman http://www.feedingphilosophies.com/
to reassure me I'm on track with our meal plans. As many of you know, because Joe has PWS the food we choose can be tricky. Tricky because our society is so focused on food. Not good clean food but junk food. BTW - I'm going slap the next person that offers to feed my 13 month old a piece of cake. NO 13 MONTH OLD SHOULD BE EATING CAKE! Even if they don't have PWS.
Back to the consult...Melanie is great. She gave me some good tips that I already knew in the back of my mind, but just needed that confirmation. Melanie said that we need to feed Joe what we eat. OK, guess that means momma is going to be eating better. Here's an example of dinner last Thursday
Salmon & Pea Puree
1 Wild Alaskan Salmon fillet
1 bag of frozen peas (defrosted)
1 garlic clove
1/4 c mint
Heat olive oil in med/high pan. Rinse salmon, pat dry, salt & pepper (i didn't salt/pepper Joe's piece). cook skin side up for 5 minutes, flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Fish is done!
Add peas, mint, garlic, salt/pepper (optional for baby) to food processor. Add olive oil while pureeing. Remove and add Parmesan cheese.
I put a big dollop of the pea puree on the salmon - yum!
