Getting ready for our Italian Getaway with @violabuitoni so dinner was quick but deelish. Pan fried pasta in evoo to make a crunchy base for sautéed zucchini and beet stems and greens ... it’s all I had but was yummy all the same. A dollop of creamy goat cheese topped the cake. #dinner#yum#chevre#goatcheese#pasta

My 13 month old twins and I gobbled this goat cheese, almond & beet salad up tonight! It had this tangy lemon vinegarette dressing, so delicious and packed full of nutrients, and my babies agreed! If I could offer one piece of advice to moms: Begin as you mean to go.
You can't start your baby out on nothing but applesauce, yogurt melts and Graham crackers and expect your 5 year old to one day just love beets & goat cheese! (I'm talking from experience here, my 7 year old hates vegetables 🤦♀️) I am a huge fan of baby led weaning- letting your baby eat what you eat from the start.
Start with them on your lap while you're eating dinner around 6 months. If they show interest, let them hold it, if they figure out how to put it in their mouth, let them try it! They get to start life with a well developed palette. Broccoli, beets, salmon, chicken, tomatoes, goat cheese, plain Greek yogurt, they will just grow up loving these foods. They get used to avory, salty, sour, and all the textures!
It also saves money, (baby food is not cheap!) and ain't nobody got time to be making baby food with a baby bullet!
Gabbi has some great tips to help get your kids eating, but if your kids aren't kids yet- begin as you mean to go and get those babies eating all the foods now! & If you want more info on BLW-check out @babyledweaningideas, she has been a great inspiration to me & has great info about safety, salt content & how to start!
One of our family favorite summer time snacks is endive bites 💗 The best part is that you don’t need to cook it! All you need is: large heads white endive, trimmed and separated into leaves; some soft goat cheese, few fresh figs, each cut into 6 pieces, some fresh ground black pepper, pecans and raw honey.

Apple Cinnamon Goats Milk Cheese Log
I’m a big fan of goat cheese, especially with dessert type flavors, so I was excited to see this Apple Cinnamon log at TJ’s. It has a good flavor, with the cinnamon mixed throughout the cheese instead of just on the apples.
The cheese is a little on the sour/acidic side, which seems to be especially noticeable next to the sweetness of the apples, but the apples give it a nice sweet flavor. It goes great with cinnamon pita chips. Overall, I liked this, but I’m not sure I would get it again since I definitely like the blueberry version of this way more.
