We've been eating, for the most part, gluten-, dairy- and sugar-free since the beginning of the year. So, like 3 weeks. But it feels really good to be eating so healthy-that I really think it's going to stick.
The kids are doing great on it, too. Except for missing their chocolate milk (which we added back last week buying Horizons Organic Chocolate Milk), they haven't seemed to notice. And they love the healthy lunch chart. They now know they need to eat from each category, and because they are fixing their own lunch, it sometimes looks like a hodge-podge of a meal-like rice noodles, tomato, pear and raw almond butter. But it's balanced and healthy and they made it themselves so they eat it all. And I'm happy.
Most days, we've settled into a lunch routine...Belle loves Nori rolls with brown sticky rice, carrots, tomatoes and avacado. We've had a sushi roller for years. I'm so glad she's getting use out of it.
Boo fixes rice cakes with peanut butter and raisins-and usually a tomato.
We're still looking for good, filling snacks though...and ones that are good to grab and go. Any ideas?
