Are you a parent struggling to get your kid to eat healthier? Over the years I worked with hundreds of families who were struggling at mealtimes trying to get their kids to eat healthier. I want to help you make male time easier and hopefully more enjoyable.
When you go grocery shopping do you look at the ingredients? What do you see? How much of those "ingredients" do you recognize? If you have never seen the word, or do not know what it means, I can assure you that it is not fit for human consumption, much less any child's digestive system. In much the same way, our pet food has gone through the same transition. Take a look at the ingredients on any pet food. What is in there? If there is anything other than fruits, vegetables or meat, you might have issues with the health of your pet. What does all of this have in common?
I knew I had to figure this critical piece out for myself. Without having something sweet to eat that was also satisfying and healthy, I would not be able to sustain a healthy eating program. White knuckling only worked a few days for me.
I did a ton of experimenting on this. I wanted to be consistent no matter what was happening and where I was. I tried and failed a million times. After a while though, I came up with some tricks that really helped me. I want to share these with you in the hopes that you can either use them or, tweak them a bit to suit your lifestyle.
Most of us are in a food rut. We want to eat healthily, we want to have delicious yummy meals, but we don't want to spend a ton of time in the kitchen. If cooking is a chore the less likely you're going to go into the kitchen. So, what happens? Pizza! Chinese food! Fast Food! And really, that might be fine every now and then, but when that becomes a daily habit, you're going to have some health issues.
Here are some delicious staple meals that I make and hopefully you will be able to add some of these suggestions into your repertoire. Hopefully, these ideas will make things easier on you.
