Daily color themes for my baby's porridge

I love cooking fresh porridge for my baby every morning. I enjoy exploring limitless possibilities of grains, vegetables, and meat combos. Different combos give me different colors! :)

As a working mom, I don't have much time to think about what to cook in the morning. So, the key thing is to plan ahead.

Every night, I take a peek into the fridge and do a quick "mind-mapping" about what vegetables to combine. Then, I do all the peeling and cutting. The next morning, I cook everything (grains, meat, vegetables) in my SEED lunch box. Baby's meal will be ready within 40-45 minutes. For vegetables that don't require too much cooking, I will steam them separately before blending with the cooked grains and meat. Finally, I pack the porridge into a thermos flask and pass it to my babysitter.

Here are the colors that I have seen so far.
