Fried Rice with Salad Greens

T has now transitioned to eating proper solids, by which I mean food that is not semi mashed. Although, his breakfast and snacks range from french toasts and omelettes to cut fruits and cutlets. I kept him for the longest time on puréed veggie combos mixed with rice (un-mashed) for his main meals. This was purely because he was having the two portions of veggies without any fuss and somewhere I wasn’t ready to change that up. Though I knew when the time came for the full transition we’d just know, and here we are!

This deliciously simple recipe allows you to truly mix up those leafy greens and one can add just about anything to the rice and make it super healthy. I’ve proclaimed my love for the leafy greens before, and I think this one does complete justice!
