I had to laugh when I read about getting your 5 children onboard with your nutritarian lifestyle. I know what you mean. I have 7 in all and everyone has something they hate that someone else loves (for example mushrooms). I remind them I am not a short-order cook and you can always choose not to eat whatever I serve. Of course this doesn't mean they don't sneak into the refrigerator later, LOL. Choose your battles. All I ask is that they must take three regular bites of whatever. Oftentimes they end up going ahead and eating the entire serving after three bites and maybe ask for seconds. Some children are more stubborn than others. My 12-year-old son insists he hates mushrooms but if they are blended, he eats them without complaining. I don't mention the mushrooms and he eats without complaining. You will never please everyone. 439 days ago
I saw an old post of you writing about the difficulty finding varied diet. I am new to vegan cooking and eating. I hope things are better now for you. I have been eating salads (of course), all kinds of vegetables and fruits, multi-grain bread, spaghetti with marinara sauce, veggie burgers veggie bean burgers, veggie chili. Next week I think I'll have taco's and/or burritos, homemade veggie bean burgers with tomatoes, onion, pickles, lettuce, and multi-grain bread. I have been looking at a lot of recipes on the internet. It is going to take some planning but I'm sure after a few weeks it will get easier. 463 days ago
If you find one that is active and you love let me know. I like the support to eat the E2L way but there is not much chat there. Are you still doing a BLC challenge? I heard that the new team is a combo and is the Golden Phoenix team. I am going to give it my best shot this challenge on Grey and am, hoping for 15 pounds loss and btw I think that is fantastic that you did that in the fall! I will miss you too and so many from the Turquoise team. Seems so weird to not be part of it. And it seems so strange that the Turquoise team is not here. I do love the Grey wolves as I think I don't have enough time to be part of too many teams though and they have quite a few things right on that team to get me motivated. All the best! Yes lets keep in touch.
