Hi everybody! You can call me Badness. I’ve started on a weight loss journey and Jen invited me over to Fight the Fluffy. I posted about my diet at home today, but I have a specific issue I’d like some insight/help on.
I have 2 little children, my daughter is 4 and my son is one. They are both active and healthy, and I want them to stay that way. My boy is in perpetual motion, and needs more calories – not less. My girlie doesn’t need to subsist on diet food. And I don’t say ‘diet’ in the house…..I do not want to pass any of my food issues onto my beautiful children…I especially worry about the Princess.
So how do I feed them? How do I feed us? I don’t have the time or inclination to cook separate meals. I don’t want to eat modified, engineered, fat-free products. I want to eat food. I want my family to eat together, and my children to learn healthy habits and an appreciation for food. So far I have been cooking healthy things, with less fat and more veggies than I was before, and adding fat back (in the form of butter, cheese, p.b., etc.) to the kids portions.
If anyone has any menu/recipe ideas that are great for a family, and great for the waistline, let me know….I have a feeling I’m going to run out before long, and I don’t want to fall back on Kraft dinner!
Thanks for letting me join you over here….I can’t wait to get to know all of you.
