Help! I get paid on Friday. Meantime I need something for my toddler to munch on.
I have meat, so hubby and I are covered. I need something I can make my picky toddler that is nutrient dense and satisfying. Crunchy is a plus.
What I have: Chicken and beef Lots of shredded coconut Maybe a dozen eggs Lots of honey. A little shredded cheese, pistachios, frozen blueberries and strawberries. Butter, olive oil A little coconut oil
I have some bread flour and I'm ok with using it in small amounts. Gluten only constipates her.
Canned tomatoes, fresh shallots, can of garbanzos, wee bit of bacon bits, frozen spinach, frozen mixed veggies, and lots of honey.
I have all the normal spices and then a few.
Thanks for the help! My daughter and my peace of mind appreciate it.
Two options that are imperfectly paleo but still relatively nutritious:
If you don't mind using a little bit of flour (1/2 cup total, so really very little per puff), try gougeres: http://www.davidlebovitz.com/2009/01/gougeres-french-cheese-puffs/ They'd be great with shallots, shredded cheese, & maybe an extra egg.
You can also roast those chickpeas—drain and rinse and dry them, coat liberally with fat (olive oil is great, coconut oil might work as well) and spices and salt, and roast at 450 until they're blistered and crunchy.
Deviled eggs with bacon, shallot, and pistachios. Since you didn't specify that you have mayo, maybe you want to whip some butter and a small amount of lemon juice or vinegar into it, then top with paprika.
If she's not quite at the age for handheld food yet, chop up the whites and make egg salad instead!
