So...I'm tired of eating junk. Piper is getting bigger and just
starting a few solids and I'm very particular about the food she gets.
While I sit there drinking a Pepsi and eating Act II popcorn.
Such a double standard and not the health message I want to send my
daughter, kwim? I want to quit eating so much processed crap. It
literally makes me ill and upsets my stomach and yet I continue the
My problem is...I don't even know where on Earth to start. I cook
almost all of our meals so we're not eating a diet consisting only of
frozen entrees or fast food, but it's still not sound, healthy, well
rounded meals. Lots of "cream of.." soups, velveeta cheese, Kraft
cheese for the grilled cheese sandwiches, store-purchased white bread,
frozen pizza, pop tarts, Kraft mac 'n cheese, Doritos, Frosted Flakes,
Fruit Loops...you get the picture.
I have a tiny kitchen and not much room for *stuff* and big appliances.
I know it's not going to be an overnight transition and it's going to
take me a while to weed out all of this junk entirely. I just feel so
overwhelmed even trying to figure out where on Earth to start!
I want to feed my daughter healthy meals and I don't want to continue
this vicious cycle of crap food. Don't get me wrong, I'll probably
never say no to Pepsi and Kraft Mac forever, but I don't want to be
eating it on a weekly basis...you know? Also, we could never go
vegetarian so that's not an option for us at all. And we don't eat
Help me! Here are a few things we eat on a regular basis to give you an
idea of the things we like: stroganoff (onion soup mix and cream of
soup+ sour cream), spaghetti, hamburgers, gulash, salads, chicken
strips, BLTs, crock pot rotisserie chicken, taco soup, enchiladas
(store bought sauce..), baked ziti, tacos, pork loin, roast (cream of
See? I need help! Lots of it!
Here's the list of fruits/veggies we like: tomatoes, cucumbers, bell
peppers, lettuce, corn, carrots, celery, apples, bananas, grapes,
strawberries, oranges, grapefruit, and kiwi (I'm sure there's more,
hard to think of them all). I only like FRESH veggies, never cooked.
I'll tolerate *very small* amounts of onions in food, but I don't care
for it very much. I'll admit I don't really even know if I like things
like zucchini, eggplant, etc. because I've never tried them and I'm
nervous to do so, haha! I'm kind of a picky eater.
So....now what? I don't like to spend hours in the kitchen every day
cooking so the easier the better. Point me in the right direction!!
