Oh yes he does...

He still loves salad. He eats it for breakfast AND lunch. Lately we have been having goat cheese, pomegranate seed and red onion w/ poppy seed dressing. But he will eat it plain too. His favorite food is broccoli. He bypassed McDonald's hash browns (what???) the other day and begged for fruit. He didn't eat one piece of Halloween candy and I have never seen him finish a dessert. I wish I could claim the credit for this, but this is just how he came. He also eats and loves pickles, sushi, mustard, BBQ sauce, Thai noodles, curry and anything else spicy or strange. Yet he will not eat french fries. Again, he is my most complex child.


He did, however, find a Costco sized package of gum yesterday and chew them all and leave them around the house....

I need to get more protein into this child. No wonder he is only two apples tall!!! Also, he is still pretty much always naked. It is a loosing battle.

I love him and he's not even my baby. I am so jealous he loves veggies - he could teach Kalea a thing or two. With the veggie eating and the naked-ness - he could be on Survivor one day.

Now I want some salad.

does he like soy beans/edamame? How about eggs? Bacon bits?

Oh my, what a doll he is. Liquid Chocolate eyes...they melt my heart into warm goo.

My daughter eats that way too. Spicy, Salads, Broccoli, etc. My oldest son? Picky-icky-icky. I had a vegetable eating contest last week though and my boy ate every food he "hates" just because he thought he was "beating" someone. I guess competition trumps tastebuds?

Lucky for him you live in a mild climate! (the no clothes thing)

I would LOVE for my kids to eat the way he does! (Animal)Protein is overrated. Have you read The China Study by Dr. Campbell?

He is in hippy granola training! Maybe he'll be the next "Naked Chef"?
Hee!

That's so great. Here I was completely in awe of his dietary habits and then I got to the part about the gum. I can just picture you finding an entire packs worth of ABC gum hidden about the house!

Fabulous pics--and eventually they do grow out of the state of undress.

Well, mostly.
