About Me

This is a blog for my son. He has a rare auto immune disease that causes his body to attack food like it would a virus making it impossible for him to eat most any foods with out getting very very sick. This is a record of our ups and downs, doctor visits and procedures. Our trial and error life of finding out what foods are safe for our son to eat and eliminating the ones that are not from his life.

Sweet Potatoes

We are trialing sweet potatoes now. We started today!!
Same process as with the apples. I bought an organic sweet potato from Earth Fair, it's as local and fresh as I could get, next to the farmers market or growing my own.

first we peel

then we slice

then we steam

see the steam??

good grief I love this kid!

look at that face!!!

watching the steam from the potatoes cooking

my lovely food processor!

I want some!

So far he's acting like he doesn't like the taste. I'm hoping that it's just because it's new and things will get better. I'm going to try adding some sugar to see if that helps with the flavor any.
It's so hard to know what's learned behavior, (food makes me feel bad, I don't like food), what is that he just doesn't like the flavor of this particular food, and what is actually an allergic reaction!
I will report back in a week or so with how things are going!
Wish us luck!
