I may post this in a few places. I'm curious to know if you guys eat the same meals as your family or have an entirely separate meal.
I hear a lot of people talk about the diets they are on and some are REALLY restrictive and/or that they fix completely different meals for themselves than for their families. That makes me curious to know how many people do this.
Me personally, I adjust recipes to make them lower fat, may make a side dish that only me and hubby will eat but that the kids don't like, or something like that. For example, I make my omletes with eggbeaters and FF cheese but make families with regular eggs and cheese. We all like turkey sausage & bacon so I use that. When I make a dinner meal, we all eat the same thing. I may fix me a small bag of Green Giant frozen veggies to have instead of something like Mac & Cheese but the main meals will be the same.
It seems like it would get really expensive to cook one meal for your family and eat something different yourself for 3 meals a day. I think that's just the coupon Queen in me coming out but still... I can't justify spending that much extra on groceries for us. I just make healthier choices than I used to. It's better for my kids and husband too.
