Ever wonder what my kids eat in a day? I've been asked this very question A LOT so I thought I would share with you a day in the life of my two kiddies, what they eat and drink.
When I speak to parents about the benefits of removing sugar and eating a whole foods diet, the question is usually "well what do I feed them?" I totally get where parents are coming from. Because even though they understand why it's in their best interest to eat less (or no sugar) and eat more goodness as mother nature intended, it doesn't make it easy. The fact remains that changing habits, both yours and theirs, can be tricky. Eating an entirely new way can throw anyone a curve ball. Even me.
Over the last few months my son has been experiencing eczema flair ups and not just minor ones. This has had my head spinning, as you can imagine. It was clear that things needed to be adjusted in his diet but I was my own biggest obstacle. I couldn't wrap my head around how to do this, even though I KNEW how to do it. I was stuck. My own stuckness was because of how I perceived his diet already being healthy... however it wasn't healthy for him. But the fact remained, his skin was inflamed and something needed to change. And although I was aware of this, I needed guidance on making my first step. So I sought help. And thank goodness I did, because that is was exactly what I needed. Sometimes knowing the facts doesn't help you makes steps. It can just be overwhelming.
So if you want to make changes in your children's diets but don't really know how to execute it, you are TOTALLY not alone. So don't be hard on yourself. You're human and change takes time.
Ok, back to their diet diary. This is one example of what they eat during a spring or summer day. Their diet, just like mine, changes with the seasons.
Breakfast: Energy stabilizing porridge (recipe in my Kick Your Sugar Habit Cookbook), a sliced apple, some berries and water.
Snack: A fruit/veggie/seed butter smoothie (recipe in my FREE snacks recipe book, link at the bottom of post!).
Lunch: Mixed greens with cucumber, olives and chicken with homemade garlic green dressing (recipe for dressing in my private FB community) and water.
Snack: Hummus and cut up veggies and a homemade popsicle (recipes in my FREE snacks recipe book, link at the bottom of post!) and water.
Dinner: Gluten free pasta with roasted vegetable marinara sauce with leftover chicken and water.
Snack: Hummus and veggies and a sliced apple >> This is for my daughter as she goes to bed after my son.
As you can see, it's not complicated. In fact, it's pretty simple foods and clean ingredients.
