Mealtime with Mommy: It’s Spaghetti night

It’s Spaghetti night but tasted way more dressed up💕, this Vegan Spaghetti sauce was bougie and vegan. There used to be a time that I thought sauce HAD to have ground meat in it to be official..and when I say that I mean vegan grounds too. They are sometimes just as unhealthy as the actual thing you’re trying to avoid. Believe it or not it’s all in the mind what makes food a complete meal to you and sometimes all it takes is just rethinking your norm to be open enough to try something new! It’s all in the sauce💕

More Corn Please!

Our boys Bry and Liam looked so confused when they seen the baby corn on their plates today. But they tried and for the day momma felt like she conquered!

Where do you find it? You can find it at any local grocery store in the international aisle. You’d be surprised what your little one is willing to try when your open to try new things Its! Its always a win when your toddlers actually eat what you put in front of them and it doesn’t end up on the kitchen floor!
