Recently, however, after reading this amazing book, I’ve been trying to change our family’s eating habits. More vegetables, fruits, lean protein, and whole food fats. Less sugar and empty carbs.
It sometimes feels impossible to do.
Like on a recent grocery trip with my 14-year-old daughter, Alia…I was kind of stressed out.
I’d already spent my grocery budget on healthy food, and I hadn’t even started on the list of “junk food” my children had requested.
“Everyone’s going to whine,” I told Alia. “They’re not going to be satisfied with all this healthy food, so I’m going to have to go over my budget and buy all this stuff that’s not even good for us.” (I know…it was a weak moment.)
Well, Alia could see my ridiculousness. And within 10 minutes, she’d solved the whole problem.
We bought all our healthy food. We stayed within our budget. All the children were happy.
