Just finishing Day 3 of my Real Food challenge. Today was much easier that yesterday! I am halfway done with Step 1 of my Bee Healthy Challenge. I am usually not such an organized meal planner, so this part has already taught me a lot. I am sticking to it and not quitting. I think about quitting sometimes (like when I am tired from all the cooking :). I have all these “organic” snacks in the pantry that I put up real high, and sometimes I just want to pull one down. But I haven’t yet!! I am proud.
Me: Organic Herbal Tea w/ Honey, Plain Yogurt w/ Maple Syrup
Boys: Chocolate Milk (whole & organic), yogurt w/ fruit, millet toast w/ butter
Boys: Homemade Yellow Rice and Chicken, Cheddar Cheese slices, grapes
One thing here, I didn’t let the boys have ANY snacks (even healthy ones) between lunch and dinner. I think that is why they ate ALL of their dinner. Even my picky eater. 🙂 I read this tip in French Kids eat Everything. LOVE this book! A must read.
(This picture is not that great- sorry! I am tired!)
Boys and Me: Quinoa Hamburgers. Sliced tomatoes. Greek Salad (you are probably getting tired of seeing this salad!). It is still good 🙂
Dessert: Bowl of Chocolate Ice Cream. Boys: Slice of Banana Bread.
Eating Real Food is not difficult! Simple and Tasty. Even though I am a little tired from all the work, I know I am doing the healthiest thing for my family. That makes it worth it!
