Is anyone game for some kambing (mutton) soup? This lady is anything but…. fat. Expect food shots posted as is, with minimal or no filters. #foodonthetable are often flavourful (and maybe, sinful?) to whet those appetites of ours. No one’s complaining though, just as we embrace eating in moderation too with our family!

My own style of Kambing Soup, for the man💪🏻🍲

Natasha’s Instagram feed is filled with her 23-month old’s meals. Nutritious, and delicious-looking, mums can pick up recipe ideas while enjoying the visual feast. As she ensures her toddler eats well, this pregnant mama makes sure her own diet is loaded with healthy ingredients too and so her baby bump benefits for the food too. Finger food, anyone?

CHICKEN OAT MEATBALLS A complete recipe, tips on why grind your own meat and more on the website SorensPurplePlate.com . . BLW appropriate from 7 months minus the salt. . . Make a larger than usual batch of steel cut oats for breakfast and use the leftovers for this recipe. These meatballs freeze well. . . To see what other meatballs Soren likes, look here #Sorensmeatballs . . . . INGREDIENTS: 1 cup cooked oats (I used steel cut) 2 large chicken breasts or 1 lb ground chicken 2 eggs 1/2 onion 1 garlic clove 1 tsp turmeric panko breadcrumbs (or any other breadcrumbs) . . METHOD: . . 1. I prefer to grind my own meat (check my blog as to why). To do so just place chunks of chicken into a small food processor like @cuisinart mini and pulse for 15 seconds or less. Or use a pound (0.5kg) of already ground chicken. . . 2. Mince or finely chop the onion. Mix all the ingredients (except breadcrumbs) well together. . . 3. Preheat your large pan. I didn't have a non-stick available so had to use a bit more oil.. . ❗️Avocado oil is perfect for it since it has a very high smoke point. . . 4. Form little balls and roll them in breadcrumbs. I love using Japanese panko because they make the meatballs nice and crunchy. . . #blw #babyledweaning #salad #kidsalad #meatballs #healthymeatballs #lunch #healthylunch #babyfood #healthymeals #toddler #toddlermeals #familyfood #instafood #instababy #homemade #f52grams #healthydinner #nutrition #toddlerfood #instaweanteam #healthykidscommunity #kidsfoodideas #dinner #feedfeed #eeeeats #kidsfood #toddlerfood
