idiot's guide to healthy eating with kids AND a husband
Monday, November 26, 2012
it's no secret that my husband is a foodie like myself. he is a recovering drug addict of 15 years... with 18 months completely clean and sober i should add. he says food is his only advice and thinks he should be able to enjoy it. and i don't say anything.. but i can tell it bugs him that he's eating 2 breakfast burritos and hashbrowns and i'm eating egg whites and 2 slices of bacon. so i've been researching today on recipes... now, my husband is not picky.. but he will often give me the same sound my kids make when i tell them they get ''regular milk'' instead of chocolate. that disappointed sigh. swear it's like having three kids sometimes
so.. after a pretty good cardio workout this morning.. i'm motivated again. and after about 15 minutes of recipe research.. i'm totally overwhelmed. oy! someone should write a book or put up a website for recipes that their kids ACTUALLY LOVE and husbands who enjoy food as well. i look up kids recipes and you know what it is.. a bunch of raw vegetables arranged to look like a smiley face. what the hell is that? my kids would see that as an invitation to start playing at the dinner table. now i'm all for fun and maybe some silliness when making the dinner plate.. but i mean, come on. really? not only will my girls undoubtedly not enjoy that.. my husband certainly won't. food that tastes good. that my kids will enjoy. and that my husband won't insist on eating an entire bag of cookies because my dinner was awful or consisted of nothing but carrot sticks and raw broccoli. i've got a reputation to uphold!
