I get the late night munchies as well. However, right now my biggest challenge is that I have to stay away from so many foods bc of DS's sensitivities that I haven't been denying myself anything I can eat, and most definitely not watching the portion sizes. ie Super Gulp Slurpees every day. Yum!
Same here. I've taken to making lots of pizza and pasta. My 2 year-old will try anything if you call it "noodles" or "pizza." The other night I made a one-skillet meal with chicken, bell peppers, tomatoes, low-fat cheese, brown rice, and tomatoes. He made a face as soon as he saw it, but we told him the rice was "little noodles." That was enough to get him to take a bite, and then he was ok. I've also been putting creative combinations on pizza crust (thanks to Mr. Food) and trying to get more veggies into all of us that way.
ETA: Just realized I didn't actually answer the question. My biggest issue is late-night snacking. I'm sitting here at 10:10PM and thinking about how badly I wish the animal crackers in the kitchen were iced, or that we still had some dip to go with the Wheat Thins on top of the fridge...
Being a mom to two 3 year old I find myself eating whatever is easiest to prepare vs what is the healthiest option. I constantly feel overwhelmed with all the daily chores I find it easy to nuke some chicken nuggets or a hot dog instead of taking the time to prepare homecooked meals everyday. Also, my boys are very picky so it's always easier to just eat what they are having instead of making something seperate.
