Meet My Sous Chef, Max! When this little guy was 2 months old (about a year ago) I decided to change my lifestyle and began eating a plant-based diet. I would have never thought after so many years of struggling with my weight, this amazing boy would be my greatest inspiration. He is the reason I want to be a better me, a healthier me, and live the longest life this universe will allow.
So, this is Max. He is mostly a plant-based baby. I have been making his food since he started eating solids. Veggies and fruits only. When it came time to test out dairy and eggs, they did not agree with his tummy or skin. So they were out. Then when he was old enough to try meats, we offered him chicken, turkey and beef. He is such a good eater that he tried everything we gave him. Though he would inevitability spit it out and eat his vegetables instead. This kid LOVES his fruits and vegetables! He will pretty much eat anything that is green.

Each morning his breakfast consists of diced fruit, 1 slice of gluten-free, vegan toast with either mashed up banana or cream “cheese” followed by a Green Smoothie. This kid loves green smoothies so much that if for some reason I am running behind in making it, he will let me know he is ready for his smoothie by pointing and waving at the Vitamix with excitement. Hah! I have created a green smoothie monster.
So, this is my little man. I hope you enjoyed meeting him.
