I enjoy photographing foods of all sorts and this month I decided to get creative with brown rice. My youngest daughter just turned 6 months and was ready to start eating solid foods and so I purchased some organic brown rice from the neighborhood market. As I was pouring in into the measuring cup I decided to put some of the rice on a white plate and form it into the shape of a heart and snap a few pics. No artificial lighting used just the natural light and of course a few tweaks in Lightroom. I really like the outcome.
Brown Rice is very nutritious and one of the foods that is least likely to be an allergen for your baby. Therefore if you are starting your baby on solid foods, I would suggest that you begin with brown rice cereals. Brown Rice is also versatile, and can be combined with any food that your baby likes. Here’s a quick recipe.
- Steam 1/2 cup of organic brown rice
- Puree the cooked rice with 1 tablespoon of water, breast milk, or formula
- Serve warm with side of pureed fruit like banana or apples
