New Foods!

Ellie has two new foods. Yup. That's right! As of today she has two new foods to add to the list. Don't get too incredibly excited because they still fall into that never ending category of meats, but they are still new!

Drum roll please!

First up we have a successful course of not just the broth, but also WILD TURKEY MEAT. Yum!

Second in line...Ellie has really been needing fish. For a long time.  I think the last time she had fish was when she started GAPS 15 or so months ago, and she was not a fan of salmon broth.  This week I bit the bullet and purchased fish for her at the farmer's market.  Wild fresh fish is incredibly expensive and hard to find, but this week my eyes have been opened to how much she needs it.  So today she enjoyed an entire pureed filet of WILD SNAPPER. I mixed it with a little bit of turkey to take off the edge, and she did not hesitate to eat the entire mix today.  Of course after her first bottle I asked her if her soup was yummy, to which she firmly replied 'No'.  ha, ha!

Today was day 9 of Team Ellie, and she has three new foods in 9 days. Fermented zucchini juice, wild turkey, and wild snapper.  In combination with the other successes we have already seen, I am incredibly humbled.

At the very end of last summer she seemed to do well with a flat round squash called Pattypan, but this was just as it disappeared for the season.  Well, it is back! And it looks as if Miss Ellie may be getting to try out and confirm some new squash! So next on the menu will be a light colored Pattypan squash, just to be sure it was indeed one she could tolerate.  Then it is on to choosing her next food to try, and we are thinking it may be time to give those backyard grain-free eggs a shot.

Incredibly exciting stuff around here. Go, Team Ellie, go!  Prayers are being answered!
