Looks like I forgot to follow through on this blogging Been a little busy. So between all my apps, books, gadgets; I would give myself 4/5 stars on improving our world.
Health wise; although not 100% compliant; we have had success on 100 Days of Real Food. I have (except for some delicious chocolatety cereals), rid the pantry of the crap. Whole grain, organic, etc…we got it. You will find me sporting a bag of Fritos when I make chili, and when we have the stomach virus I buy banana popsicles and Sprite. It happens and personally I don’t think there is anything negative. Haters gonna hate. I love that my kids are putting wholesome ingredients in their bodies and hopefully prolonging their healthy years. I cook a lot more, the kids lunches are made of whole grain waffles with cream cheese and strawberries, cheese cubes, and grapes. Oh yeah, and turns out PB&J can be on the list. I started “Quattro” on organic formula. ($$$$$, boo). They didn’t even have that when #1 was born. #1 is super crazy smart and healthy, my thought is that I’ll do the best I can for them with what I can at the time.
For for the grown ups in the house, we are juicing more; making smoothies with stuff like flax…whaaa??? We are exercizing more (atleast I am). We eat carbs, I do mostly purchase from a local bakery. It turns out I can cook normally even while eating whole foods. The biggest pain is the time it takes to grocery shop at a non-Whole Foods grocery store. As I do.
I have so much to share on child discipline, using Pinterest :), babyhood, organization, The Honest Company. Will write more.
