    Mary, thanks for pointing me in the direction of Michael's blog about avoiding bingeing. That was a very good blog, vivid, interesting, and helpful!

    If you are like me and have had or raised children. Then you know that our kids look to us to set examples for them to follow.

    It isn't always easy to do. Especially when it comes to what we eat and fitting in exercise. Most of us lead busy lives and sometimes it isn't easy to fit in regular exercise, but unless you make it a priority, you are risking your child becoming a couch potato and junk food junkie.

    So where do we start. We start by taking them shopping with us and teaching them to pick out healthy whole grains, fruit, vegetables and lean meats, poultry or fish.

    I have always tried to make my sons part of the process even in the kitchen. When it comes to handling the food that is just as important as knowing how to pick it out if we want it to remain healthy enough to eat. That is why wash, rinse and sanitize is such an important fact to remember when it comes to food prep and handling.

    After the shopping is done and everything is put away. Dinner is over with, we have the choice of sitting in front of the tv or going to our rooms and playing video games. Not in my house. We would go for a walk, bike ride or often a hike across the canal in the woods around Peanut Lake. The boys to this day are still very active and even belong to gyms. I am so proud that they take an active roll in their relationships as adults in meal planning and exercise.

    Remember that also snack planning is just as important. Not just for the children, but for those of us that want to eat healthy. We can prepare our snacks ahead of time and have them ready to go in a snack bag. This makes snacking healthier and convenient.

    So how about you, are there any suggestions that you can think of ?
