I've come back to Spark after a long hiatus. I have a good 65-70-lbs to make disappear thanks to my never-ending-divorce, single parenting, stress eating and my new career which keeps me on my butt in front of a computer for hours after 'work' hours. I discovered the Clean Eating magazine and the cookbooks and I love them, but...
My kids and I are vegetarian/nearly-vegan so I have to modify so many of the recipes. All 3 of us are also extremely fussy eaters. I'm trying to avoid all sugar/sweeteners, all flours but mainly wheat, yeast, and dairy for a few weeks. I want to ween us off dairy by September but I think I'll hang on to eggs for a while.
Packing school lunches is my personal hell. I hate buying commercial granola bars, and my kids are sick of canned peaches, pears and applesauce. I don't usually have time to bake, which sucks. I need to pick up a copy of the Eating Clean for kids & families, but I'm hoping to find some kid-friendly, veg-friendly recipe ideas here, especially for school lunches.
Don't dream it...be it!!
