Readers, meet Violet Beauregarde.
You might remember her from the creeptastic classic, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory aka Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Well, Noob Baby has decided that Violet is her new hero, so deliciously full of antioxidents. Hence, NB has tossed aside all prior affiliations with Cheerios in exchange for pure unadulterated bluuueeeberrries.
The only thing Noob Baby wants to consume these days are blueberries. She can pound through one container of blueberries in roughly one day (give or take 6 hours). The plus side is that since I’m on my
diet lifestyle makeover, I can eat these along with Noob knowing they’re only about 80 calories for a whole cup. And of course, they’re so healthy and anti-oxidenty. Mmm… and you can throw them in muffins, pancakes, smoothies, cookies, cereal, coffee…
We love them frozen, especially since it’s been averaging 90 degs here in So Cal for the past few weeks. Frozen blueberries and frozen peas are awesome treats for teething toddlers by the way (once they’ve figured out how to chew solids pretty well).
So, I guess I’ll pull the plug on this blueberry craze once I start to notice Noob Baby aging backwards from all the AOs. When I see her rooting for the breast, I’m gonna ditch the blueberries faster than you can say, “Violet! You’re turning violet, Violet!”
