Now that Des is communicating with us through sign language and simple words, meal time has become a tug of war filled with drama. If he doesn't like something (broccoli), he'll lift his arms up to shield his face from it or rub his eyes pretending to be sleepy. On aggressive days, he'll vehemently shake his head shouting strings of  "no!" If he feels like I'm really not getting the point, he'll nonchalantly pick up the food and throw it on the floor. By now, I've grown accustomed to my picky toddler's rejections so when I find a recipe the likes and responds to with praises of "mo, mo, mo," I can't help but blog about it.

On Sundays, I make parmesan encrusted egg frittatas and hearty oatmeal packed with all the good stuff. Both are super easy to whip up and can freeze well. Most importantly, my picky toddler loves them!

{Cheesy Egg Frittata}
1. Saute a medley of fresh vegetables like onions, zucchini, bell peppers, spinach, and tomatoes. When cooking with fragrant veggies like onions, I always turn on my Best Range Hood to capture any unwanted scent.
2. In a bowl, beat five large eggs and add two tablespoons of almond milk, a couple pinches of salt and pepper and two pinches of rosemary.
3. Combine eggs with the veggies and add 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese.
4. Place the mixture in an omelette pan or medium sized baking cheese. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.

{Sunday Morning Oatmeal}
1. In a medium saucepan, heat three cups of water and bring to a boil. Turn on range hood as it's going to get quiet steamy!
2. Add one cup of diced sweet potatoes and one cup of quick cook oatmeal. Cook for five minutes.
3. Stir in antioxidant rich goji berries, two tablespoons of ground flaxseed, a few drops of raisins, and a sprinkling of brown sugar.
4. Remove from pan and drizzle with whole milk and fresh fruit of choice.
