Good Food

in All Posts

So much good food.


In lieu of maple syrup, I’ve been using brown rice syrup, and it’s so much better!  You get that moist, yummy texture, but without the sting-my-teeth sweetness.


Chips while working… And a few pieces of chocolate.


And for lunch:  leftover squash and a brown rice, egg, arugula, onion, tomato, and soy chorizo stir-fry.  This was REALLY delicious. 



I wish there were leftovers!


And now – a little Henry video.  I filmed this yesterday in the car (we were parked outside a store).  He had just woken up from a nap and experienced every baby emotion in 45-second time frame.  He is smiley, babbling, laughing, confused, scared (don’t know of what!), upset, hungry, and finally satisfied.  All in under a minute. 

And I thought I was temperamental.  Winking smile

    • Caitlin December 17, 2012, 1:52 pm

      it’s just SO frowny!

  • Alison December 17, 2012, 1:54 pm

    That was so funny. Poor Henry. Glad the bottle did the trick! Silly boy.

    • Caitlin December 17, 2012, 1:55 pm

      the baba always does the trick!

  • Nicole December 17, 2012, 1:55 pm

    What IS with the frowny/cry face they have when they wake up? Every time! LOL. So cute!

    • Caitlin December 17, 2012, 1:55 pm

  • Natalie @ Free Range Human December 17, 2012, 2:12 pm

    He is too cute!!

  • Diana December 17, 2012, 2:15 pm

    Brown rice syrup sounds like something I might like – where do they sell it? Trader Joe’s?

    • Caitlin December 17, 2012, 2:18 pm

      No they don’t have it at TJs but they do at WF.

  • Katie December 17, 2012, 2:24 pm

    Love it!!! Henry is so cute!!!!!

  • Amanda December 17, 2012, 2:27 pm

    So funny! He is looking more and more like a toddler. Can’t believe it.

  • Katherine December 17, 2012, 2:30 pm

    That video makes me really glad that my husband and I went off HBC this month 🙂

    Crack me up!

  • Sarah @ Yogi in Action December 17, 2012, 2:41 pm

    haha That is a great video! He’s such a cutie!

  • Claire December 17, 2012, 2:43 pm

    Oh my gosh, I swear Henry is one of the cutest and most expressive little babies ever! I love his laugh and his sad face, so sweet!

    I’m not sure if you’re familiar with this issue, but I’ve cut out brown rice and brown rice syrup specifically (I don’t even buy products made w/brown rice syrup anymore) because of the scary-high levels of arsenic:
    It’s scary because they say brown rice (rather than white rice), and domestic brown rice and rice products are the worst offenders. You may want to try maple syrup again!

  • Sana December 17, 2012, 3:25 pm

    Aw! Little Henry is growing up so fast!

  • Katie @ Peace Love and Oats December 17, 2012, 3:30 pm

    Hahaha that was a quick switch to upset!!!

  • Reenie December 17, 2012, 3:34 pm

    Adorable! 🙂

  • Katie @ Talk Less, Say More December 17, 2012, 3:40 pm

    That video of Henry is possible the cutest and funniest thing EVER!

  • Jamie @ StudioEats December 17, 2012, 4:12 pm

    That is adorable. What a cutie!! And your food looks delicious as always! Interesting about the brown rice syrup. Is there a health difference between that any maple? Taste difference?

  • Suzanne December 17, 2012, 4:23 pm

    Too cute! Mmmm I MUST try BRS on my waffles tomorrow!!

  • Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat December 17, 2012, 5:18 pm

    Aww so cute!! If I’m woken up from a nap, I think I probably have a similar frown/crying expression on my face too!

  • Alex @ Raw Recovery December 17, 2012, 6:37 pm

    Oh gosh that’s just adorable. I love your Henry videos!!!

  • Amy Q December 17, 2012, 6:51 pm

    Hey, I’m from maple syrup country, and it’s never too sweet 🙂 What kind were you using?

  • April December 17, 2012, 7:06 pm

    I love that video!

  • Claire December 17, 2012, 7:27 pm

    Wouldn’t get too into the brown rice syrup, it’s a source of arsenic – rice absorbs arsenic from soil (in very small amounts) but the concentration in brown rice syrup is much higher because of the way it’s made.

    • Claire December 17, 2012, 7:34 pm

      Whoops just saw someone else already mentioned this (another Claire, incidentally)

  • Carol December 17, 2012, 8:06 pm

    Henry is the BEST! I love this video — thanks for sharing!

  • Emily December 17, 2012, 8:08 pm

    That video is epic . . . That is all 😉

  • Lauren December 17, 2012, 8:41 pm

    Love that Henry is taking on such a personality! These videos are great! Hope you post more. 🙂

  • Jessica December 17, 2012, 8:47 pm

  • Amber K December 17, 2012, 8:51 pm

    Okay, you win. Babies melt my heart every single time. I’m done for the night 😉

  • Annie P. December 17, 2012, 9:39 pm

    This video totally made my day. Also, can we be friends in real life? Ha.

  • Jen December 17, 2012, 10:11 pm

    Okay, I’m totally not even a baby person (hell, I don’t even really like kids) but that video was freakin precious! Especially his sobby lip just before he cried, and then that total “ahh, now I’m good” face when he got his bottle. Too cute!

  • Ashley December 18, 2012, 1:33 am

    Hehehehehe! I watched that video several times because it cracked me up so much!! Oh the life of a baby… it’s tough, tough I tell ya 😉 😀

  • Jen December 18, 2012, 4:37 am

    I agree with the others – Henry really is the cutest little baby I’ve seen!!

  • CR in MD December 18, 2012, 6:41 am
