Breakfast: whole wheat pancakes, canned peaches, glass of milk
OR: Kashi Cereal & Fruit breakfast bar and yogurt
I pack her lunch for school, which includes a snack. It may be something like this:
LUNCH: Tuna sandwich on whole grain bread, carrots sticks, fruit leather and apple juice
OR: Whole grain pita, hummus, carrot sticks, apple, grape juice
She really likes carrot sticks, so she gets thos a lot. LOL!
After school, she may have a hard boiled egg and a piece of fruit. For dinner, she has what I have. Or, I try to make one of HER faves. Clean Mac n Cheese, Shrimp and noodles. She loves whole wheat pasta and she loves seafood. And sometimes she may have a bit of homemade icecream after dinner.
My five year old (VERY picky, I might add), likes baby carrots, hummus and whole grain pita, most fruits, hard boiled aggs, canned fish (shrimp, crab, tuna, salmon, oysters, herring), smoked fish, bison jerky (I buy from local ranch; no nitrates, naturally smoked), she also likes my brownies that I sneak spinach into (he he), she also likes my hommade granola bars... hmmm...
I have fallen off the SP wagon...and I'm dusting myself off and getting back on (before I gain anymore weight). Eating whole foods is very important to me; however, I've always found it difficult to make fast, easy snacks and meals for my family of 5.
Anyone have any quick suggestions...without having to browse the recipe book....I'm just feeling very overwhelmed! I'm done being fat...and I don't want my kids to develop unhealthy eating habits because of me :-(
