Veggie Tales…Moringa Oleifera

Thank goodness it’s Friday! Yay! ;-D So sorry, but I’m still on hiatus for doing beauty/Korean cosmetics related posts, but I promise I’ll be back on Sunday with a whole lot of them, because we have another wedding to attend tomorrow…that’s prettifying aplenty! ^_^ Anyhow, I’m just ecstatic of my son’s feat, he’s now officially eating Moringa Oleifera leaves or malunggay.

Our neighbor’s malunggay trees…we just nicely ask for some! ^_^

This is such a big deal to me, because my son took after his dad in his aversion of vegetables. (Sad!) Although, that is not the case when he was a mere baby. Thanks to my favorite parenting book, I made sure to feed him variety of nutritious vegetables, and then just one day…nada! He won’t eat a bite. But I do try, every now and then. Until just recently, we don’t need to hide these uber nutritious leaves. He started eating them! Yay! πŸ˜€

At first, we just add them in our ChickenΒ Tinola (a soup-based main dish with papaya, or sayote (chayote in english) and overflowing malunngay leaves).Β 
And guess what? I added them on our sinigang instead of kangkong (water spinach) leaves.Β 

These leaves areΒ exceptionally nutritious, so yay indeed! So I’m happy to say that Chase conquered his distaste of some mushrooms, pumpkin, sayote, and malunggay. We’re still a long way to go, but we’re getting there! πŸ˜€ Any tips, please do share? ;-D

P.S. I’m linking up with Friday Blog Hops. ^_^

  2. I seldom see Malunggay trees nowadays. I guess people should plant more trees that bear delicious and nutricious vegetables and fruits for our kid's sake. You're lucky to have a neighbor with Malunggay tree…ika nga…abot kamay lang…hahaha.
