Switching up our diet has been a little bit of an adjustment. Today when we went grocery shopping the kids kept asking for stuff and I had to tell them, “We can’t eat that anymore.” Each of us have different areas of our new diet that are hard for us: Danny doesn’t really care for the all vegetarian meals, the kids can’t stand the beans and I have trouble with fish.
Here is my new weekly dinner schedule:
-Monday: beans and rice
-Tuesday: vegetarian pasta
-Wednesday: date night
-Thursday: leftovers or sandwiches because we have cg
I am holding this schedule loosely and it may not happen on the assigned day, but the point is to have a plan!!
How we did: Eh. The dinner that I loved, everyone hated. The dinner Bentley and I liked, Danny and Marseille didn’t like. The family LOVED the salmon, I only gagged once. All of us really enjoy the cod, so we will eventually get the hang of it!! Thankfully, I enjoy baking because I am now making all our bread too. I made whole wheat bread last week but it was a little too sweet and it made 3 loaves of bread! So today, I made pita. The pita recipe that I use, you can refrigerate the dough and use it as you need it. I made 8 pita this morning and will save the next 8 for later in the week because fresh pita is the best!! A lot of people make all there stuff from scratch but for some reason, I feel like this is a big deal to me. I guess because I am no longer giving myself the option to buy a loaf of bread. Either I make it or we don’t have it. Oh well, maybe I’ll have nice arm muscles from kneading this dough!
We are consuming a lot more veggies and fruit. I cut back a little on the nuts for the kids but they love them so much it’s hard to deny them the fat! So here is to another week!!
