Kale: a green leafy veggie unknown to me until a few months ago! I heard many good things about it so I got some to make baby food out of it for Joey and it worked GREAT!!!
You can read about the Nutritional Value here but I promise you its GOOD stuff!
My G-tube receipe for today:
12 oz of Yoplait Simplait Vanilla Yogurt (400 calories, 14g protein)
12 oz of mix berries- blueberries, raseberries and strawberries (140 calories, 2g protein,8% iron, 6g Fiber)
7oz Gerber baby food Pear/Oatmeal/Cinnamon (140 calories, 2g protein, 40% zinc, 4g Fiber, 90% iron)
3oz chopped Kale (42 calories, 3g fiber, 3g protein, 9% iron)
4oz Almond Milk (45 calories)
2 tablespoon Olive Oil (240 calories)
3 tablespoons Happy Bellies Organic Oatmeal (60 calories 10% zinc, 80% iron 14g protein)
2 containers of Benecalorie (240 calories and 7g protein EACH)
So the grand total make 33 oz of pureed food. 1547 calories; 51g of protein; a ton of iron, zinc and fiber as well! Joey gets about 11 oz of puree food per day thru his g-tube plus what he eats and drinks on his own.
