As I’m preparing more serious materials that are business-related, let me just digress a bit and give my future readers a sweet gift! That’s you! You will be seeing a pop-up anytime now…
I’ve compiled a few Lentil recipes which I have personally tried and explored and just wanted to share them out. They are generally easy to make, and don’t utilise much of your culinary skills (aww… don’t get disappointed). When I start having an oven in my new home and can try on more complicated recipes I’ll be sure to share them with you! Haha!
The thing is most mummies are strapped for time and exhausted, sometimes we really don’t have the luxury to think of very interesting recipes for our little ones, but one thing is priority and should never be compromised – nutrition. Whatever we prepare for our little monkeys should always be healthy and nutritional. Yes I’m aware that I’m repeating myself, that is how important it is for me at least.
With so many schools of thought going on about whether grains should be fed, organic or non-organic, and too many I can’t recall them all: I urge you to be kiasu like me, give ALL! I feel like I can never go wrong with diversification and variety, just like investment right? Never put your eggs in the same basket. LOL!
Most Asian mummies also face the problem of turning to Western recipes for baby food because of the lack of Asian baby recipes available. I would say in Singapore, the older generation believes in “chubby equals healthy” or “heavy equals healthy” hence they tend to focus a lot on feeding porridge and rice to babies. I would beg to differ. Chubby babies are cute indeed, but not one who is being stuffed with empty calories. I’m talking about their eating habits here – is this you want your baby to depend on in the long run? The habits follow them into adulthood and I am one high carbo-dependent “victim”. No judging at all, it’s the choice of the mummy. I am a true believer of the food pyramid and having a balanced diet, although I’m mostly swayed by my cravings (teeheehee). Furthermore, with so many schools of thought going on about whether grains should be fed, organic or non-organic, and too many I can’t recall them all: I urge you to be kiasu like me, give ALL!

Enough said. I hope you enjoy the recipes I have compiled. Please please please try them out and let me know how it went so I can further improve on them and carry your feedback over to the next recipe e-book. Click subscribe!
