Cynthia Lair, “Feeding the Whole Family”

Found this in the new and notable section of my library. It focuses a lot on foods to make for babies and kids; I picked it up for the veggie-friendly recipes.

What I liked: All the ideas for meals using mainly vegetarian ingredients. Sometimes I get in a rut and keep making the same three dishes over and over again. So far I’ve tried the recipe for fresh vegetable spring rolls (p. 119). Pretty good!
What I didn’t like: The book skewed a little new-agey for me. Like this passage from the section about cooking whole grains:

Swirl the grains in the water with your hand. As you touch the grain, remember your gratefulness to the earth for providing this food.

What I learned: Lots about preparing fresh and whole foods. Got a lot of new items to add to my grocery list, and it inspired me to make a trip to the Findlay Market this Saturday.
