Committing to a healthy lifestyle is challenging with a four-year-old at home. Despite my best attempts to offer Bella a variety of healthy options, like many kids, she still prefers a steady diet of boxed macaroni and cheese, Cheetos and Oreos. (And honestly, who can blame her? I like those things, too!)
I can’t help but giggle when I try to buy “natural” boxed mac and cheese, chips and cookies. Though the ingredients are few and often organic, they’re hardly “healthy” options.
I’m coming to terms with reality. In life, there will be junk. And sadly, even in my family’s best attempt at a Daniel Plan lifestyle, much of that junk comes in food form. It’s time to make some changes.
Introducing #liontamer Recipes
I have long considered myself “domestically challenged.” But attempting a few healthy recipes from scratch once in a while will still be preferable to the marginally better “healthy junk” in the natural foods aisle at Kroger.
What’s more, it will force me to put on an apron (a-hem, for the first time ever) and get some bonding time with my family.
BONUS TIP: When my kid is involved in making something in the kitchen, she will almost always eat it!
So here it is… our first #liontamer Recipe! I’ll try more now and then and let you know how they go!
