Good Karma!

Sometimes you just need good karma . . .

I feel like I have some little guardian angels watching over me this morning.

Yesterday, I was feeling extremely overwhelmed by all of the food, meal prep, planning that takes place in my little world.  I think part of this has to do with the fact that my almost 11 year old son has also decided to be a vegetarian. While I support this wholeheartedly, the reality of this is a different issue.  My son has never, ever, been what people would call a “good eater”.  Don’t get me wrong, he likes to eat, but he is the pickiest little guy I have ever met . . . and vegetables have NEVER been on the list of things that he willingly eats.  As a mother, I want to make sure that he is getting what he needs to grow and to be strong and healthy.  And then there is my 9 year old daughter, who will eat anything and everything that is in the house.  So I have to make sure that the snacks are healthy, but more importantly that she is making good decisions and not eating out of boredom, anxiety, stress.  Wait, there is more . . . oh yeah, my husband.  Trying to integrate something more than a salad into his dinner repertoire so that he doesn’t get bored with the food and also invites variety for a healthy diet and life.   Hopefully that explains the “extremely overwhelmed” statement, sorry it was a little lengthy but this is my therapy!

Every day is a new day and I am thankful for this one.  I received two links to blogs, one from a co-worker of Ryan’s that had a recipe he tried and the other from my sister-in-law’s friend who has heard about our struggles.  These two blogs are amazing and I’m excited to try some of the recipes they offer. But more importantly, I just needed a little nod from the universe that I’m on the right track . . .

Here are the blog links, just in case you are interested:

  1. Feeding your family is the hardest job out there: what’s healthy? What’s too much? Too little? What tastes good and is convenient AND is healthy? Which members of the fam will eat which veggies?
    You can do it! You ARE doing it! And I LOVE the posts to other blogs for ideas!
