Welcome to the Adventures of MJ and Hungryman!
Yes. we love superheroes. I, MJ, like the Incredibles, and Hungryman the Amazing Spider-Man…Batman…Superman…well, you get the point. In a nutshell, MJ (short for Min Jung) cooks; Hungryman (Tim, the husband) eats. And since 2017, we’ve welcomed a precious little boy, named Caleb, into our lives, and I enjoy feeding his hearty appetite. We, as a family, decided to skip the traditional purees all together and dived right into baby led weaning. He was born 5 weeks early, and we waited until he was 6 months adjusted age to start solids. This baby led weaning journey has been so incredible that I decided to turn this blog mainly into a place where I can share simple yet wholesome recipes for babies 6 months and older.
Professionally, I am a registered dietitian who shudders at the word “diet” and believes that no food is off limits. It took me a long time to realize this. Achieving a healthy balance in every facets of life is what I strive for (it’s a constant work in progress), and when it comes to food choices, salads and Cheez Its (extra toasty, please! NO joke. It’s what got me through my pregnancy and will always have a special place in my heart) are both welcomed. Food is meant to be celebrated, not make you feel deprived, which most likely will lead to bingeing. And as I’m raising this little human of mine, I’m becoming more and more passionate about raising mindful, joyous eaters who are in tune with their hunger/fullness cues. That’s also another reason why I love BLW so much!

I hope you’ll enjoy these recipes, and most importantly, my heart will be so full if they bring your entire family around the table, including the baby, of course!
