Okay friends...this is serious. I need a food intervention. Ever since I quit nursing Blake 5 months ago, I have been eating like crap. I have lots of food vices but the WORST addiction I have lately are these damn things...
Must. Stop. Buying. Them.
I always put them in my cart and say they are for the kids, but then I catch myself eating the whole freaking box within a week. And this isn't the only garbage I have been shoving into my mouth. It's really quite ridiculous.
I honestly feel like my poor eating habits lately are contributing to my lack of energy and tummy issues. Getting back on track with running has helped a lot, but not enough. I need to make a serious change and I am afraid the first place to start is with junk food. I must get it ALL out of my house. If it's not there...I can't eat it. Plain and simple. But I am going to have to replace it with something because a hungry mama = a psycho mama. I need food. I am a grazer and I need snacks throughout the day.
BUT...I have a tendency to get bored with healthy food. I love fruit and veggies but beyond that, I need to figure out some fast, easy, HEALTHY snacks to keep around. And I could also use some meal make-overs. We are such comfort food eaters around here that it is hard to switch gears and eat lighter, especially when your hubby is a meat-and-potatoes kind of guy. I don't feel like I need to diet or necessarily lose weight...I just want to eat better and it wouldn't hurt for Eric and the kids to eat better in the process.
SO...I think I need to do some recipe searching for yummy, hearty, healthy meals. Anyone know a good cookbook that focuses on this sort of thing? Any great healthy recipe websites? I would love to share what I find and hopefully all of you will as well. I mean...I can't be the only one that is in a food slump right now. Right?
