I feel pretty fortunate in that Grace is a relatively healthy eater with no big effort on our part (I mean, really, what 2 year old just asks for hummus as a snack). But I say that and realize I have been pretty intentional with our approach to food with her since day one, so I thought I’d share a few of the ways we’ve gotten our toddler to eat healthy in hopes that it helps some of you other mamas who are struggling.
And let me just put this disclaimer out there too (should the universe or my two year old be listening and decide to challenge me)…I know kids are picky, they go through phases, and their tastes change. I remember being told a time or two a story on myself when I refused to eat my veggies because I wasn’t in a “green or orange or yellow mood.” So I’m sharing what’s working for us now in hopes that it keeps working and sheds a little light on the subject of healthy eating for kids.
Y’all! I’ve already told you I’m on the fall train over here! But I may not have told you I’m making it my mission to create as many new, delicious, AND healthy recipes as I can. But I am now!
Fall flavors and foods are part of what I love most about the season, but they aren’t always the most nutritious. I want to change that, so I’ll be sharing some of my favorite clean eating recipes with all of the yummy fall flavors. This breakfast recipe is a perfect way to start off the season!
I don’t know what it is but as soon as everyone starts heading back to school, I feel like it’s automatically fall. And you know what that means…It’s time for all things pumpkin – at least in my world! One of my favorite parts of fall is getting to enjoy all the delicious flavors! Traditionally fall flavors are a little decadent, so I love finding healthier ways that I can still enjoy them like these #PSL Overnight Oats!
Although I was hesitant to really commit to the Whole30 in the beginning, I am so glad I finally got brave and gave it a go! Once I got past the first few days of withdrawal (headaches were brutal), it’s been smooth sailing!
One of the objections I hear the most is “I just don’t have time to eat healthy…” While I know that healthy eating can be a challenge, I’d beg to differ that it takes any extra time to eat healthy. In fact with a few of my favorite recipes and a meal plan, I actually SAVE time by following ahealthy nutrition plan. This 15-Minute Roasted Chicken and Veggies is one of my absolute favorites, so I can wait for you to give it a try!Continue reading →
