E is for Eat
We as homeo sapians all need to eat at some point in time and in some way, shape or form. So, let's talk about food. What is your favorite thing to eat? What won't you touch with a 10ft pole?
I've realized as I grow older that I'm more curious to try new foods. When I was younger I was one of the pickiest eaters ever. There are still some things that I'm not crazy about, like broccoli, but I'm more open to trying new things. I'm also more of a snacker. Instead of eating three full meals a day, I'd rather snack on bits of food here and there. I used to have some very unhealthy eating habits in my past that I still struggle with them at times to get over.
After I had my daughters I became fully aware that I was in charge of nurturing these beautiful little beings. They looked to me to make good choices for them. Gone were the days of eating popcorn for dinner and Ramen noodles for breakfast. Almost two years ago we removed things like pop and sugary juices from our house. We also switched all our starches over to whole grains. I've added a lot more "greens" into our diet and while the tiny humans don't always eat them, they're offered nonetheless. I'm passionate about buying organic and locally grow food as well. It's a slow process, though. Once we accomplish one step towards eating healthier another area is brought to our attention.
I really enjoy cooking and trying out new recipes. Here's one of my favorites: Pesto French Bread Pizza
