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:
