Detox Session - Day 1 - Baby Food

You can call me crazy for doing this but I strongly believe that what a baby can eat, so can I! The idea of trying out baby food came around when I discovered that I might have a 3rd stomach for eating during my recent Taipei trip. Trying out baby food can be a way reduce my urge for snacks during my much needed detox session but it is also a good way to help mothers or mothers-to-be to discover the many flavors that are available out there as well. This little project of mine wasn't the first of its kind, I recall doing this for a few days back in university when I wanted to go on a brief detox session but stopped thanks to one disgusting tasteless flavor of chicken rice puree. Many years have passed and I reckon there have to be some kind of improvement and advancement right? We shall find out together! (and forget about the nutrition element because eating is all about the experience, enjoy your meals! or baby meals in this case)


Also, according to a recent article from Globe and Mail, many are starting to eat them as like snacks as well to my surprise. I agree that it is not a wise idea in the long run or on a regularly basis in substituting for main meals but as snacks once in a while to satisfy your snack urge (and for the fun factor), why not? haha

Heinz Pureed Pumpkin, Potato & Beef was the first flavor I tried. So how did it taste? Let me start with the smell. It smells WONDERFUL! A strong hint of beefy aroma and hint of pumpkin scent. Use your imagination and maybe you can small the potato but I could not. Texture was mushy just like mashed potatoes but slightly thinner. Taste wise it really tasted nothing like what it smelled! It was very bland on the first bite but gradually grew richer after a few spoonful. I think it would taste better if it was served warm.


After this "heavy" main course, it was time for something sweet! Please welcome Organic Baby Prunes & Oats. It actually smelled like prunes! It was relatively liquid, less mushy than the pureed pumpkin, potato and beef. I could not taste any oats in there, the sweetness of the prunes dominated the overall flavors. It seemed to be fruity but this tiny bottle contains 38g (out of 113g) of carbohydrate and 19g of sugar. Well, does it make much of a difference to me with the nutrition contents? Not really, the key is whether I enjoyed the meal.


Among the two flavors I tried today, I preferred the Prunes and Oats as snack replacement because of the sweetness. Judge it for yourself and give them both a try. More to come within the next few days! By the end of this special detox session I will see how many kg / lbs I have lost ... hopefully!

Apparently, this baby food diet has been purported to help some A-list Hollywood stars obtain their very skinny looks.

@KennyT: interested to try as well? haha

Jason said...

@cheeky angel: many are treating baby food as snack substitutes but I serious doubt it can be a full meal replacement, at least not for long term. :) ... of course the A-list Hollywood stars have a different agenda :)

Jason said...

@Rtia: you are too welcome! more flavors to come :) ... I wonder how long this can last!

@Greentea00: yeah! the sweet stuff are the way to go as snack replacement! After my post, many told me they actually tried before, I guess not many ppl would actually admit to have tried this diet right? hahaha ...

I love Gerber Applesauce and Gerber Banana! I wish they had them in one liter bottles rather than those tiny little containers.
