I was raised on one too many microwave meals. My mother was a single mom to me and my two sisters, working 60 hours plus a week, so there wasn't a lot of time to spend slaving over a hot oven. I love her so much and I can sympathize since I am a single mom myself. My son is three. I want to teach him that a healthy diet (not as in trying to lose weight but just what you eat) is a part of life. He loves to help me make meals and even do the dishes. I find that if he helps me make it, he is more likely to try it. (He can be a picky eater) I already have a system in place to make sure he is getting the nutrition he needs each meal while he gets to make choices about it so he is open to it. I want to step it up. I know how to make a limited amount of meals but I can follow any recipe. So I decided I really wanted to start being more adventurous in what I make. I have microsoft onenote which is an amazing virtual notebook basically. I am making a virtual cookbook that I can easily organize and add recipes to that I find online. I am going to find some for next week right now because tomorrow is my grocery shopping day.
I am realizing that when I picture the person I want to be in my head it is because that is who I am supposed to be...I just have to take the actions to be that person.
