Soup recipe
This is really simple recipe and we all enjoy it. Cooper loves it and it likes him too. Yeah! I'm going to give the way I make it for us and the way I made it for Cooper. I would have made it the same way for Cooper, but I already had made some chicken for him that he wasn't eating by itself. You need: zucchini, yellow squash, carrots, wild rice, lentils ( I omitted these for Cooper), chicken breast (bone in/skin on), poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. Cook the chicken in water until tender, I use the crock pot. Once cooked, remove skin and bones and shred chicken. Strain the fat of the broth. Then put bite size pieces of squash, zucchini, and carrots in the the broth along with the chicken. Cook rice and lentils according to package, add into soup. Let simmer until all is tender. Puree for babies, or leave chunky for yourself. For Cooper, I boiled the squash and carrots in water, then added a little homemade chicken broth I had. Added cooked rice then pureed. Froze in ice cube trays. I already had some pureed chicken thighs frozen, so for him, I mix 2-3 soup cubes, with 1 chicken cube and heat in the microwave until melted and warm. I stir it up and he gobbles it down. He chooses this over fruit!

ethan's mom
Meridith, mom to Ethan born 4/23/08. Ethan was diagnosed with reflux at about 1 month. He has been on Zantac (unsuccessful) and Prevacid. He is currently taking 7.5 mg of Prevacid 2x per day, with good results. We also suspect MPI, though this hasn't been confirmed by a doctor yet.
Ethan is mostly breastfed, though we are doing one bottle of soy formula each day. We also do some homeade "solids' including, so far pears, avocado, sweet potato, and peaches.
Sounds yummy! My dh won't eat soup, but perhaps I'll make some for Ethan, when he is able to eat all of those foods.

BTW, what was the address for the website where you post your elimination diet recipes? I didn't get to bookmark it before it became one of the lost posts. Meridith

Check with your
doctor first!
