When I saw the blog event "What I Ate Wednesday" over at Peas and Crayons, I thought it would be great to do a post showing a typical day's meals for my son, since that's the inevitable question when someone learns the full extent of The Kid's food allergies, "What on Earth does he eat?"
For breakfast The Kid had banana pancakes with margarine, maple syrup and some more banana, plus a cup of vanilla soy milk. While making pancakes is definitely a weekend activity, eating them can happen on any day of the week, since I usually make extras and freeze them.
For lunch my little boy had leftover chili rolled up in a tortilla to make a burrito, honey pretzel twists, grapes and apple juice. He absolutely adores any kind of Tex-Mex food, so he actually asked to have the leftover chili, rather than a sandwich.
For dinner I made a turkey sausage and spinach soup, which The Kid ate with saltines and another glass of vanilla soy milk. For dessert he had a cup of blueberry soy yogurt. As you can tell, we lean pretty hard on soy to make up for the lack of dairy in his diet.
