Here is a short post and this is my own opinion.
- one junk food meal can undo a workout
- a couple of days of junk food meals can undo a week of workouts
- a week or two of junk food meals can undo a month of workouts
I wish it wasn't so but this seems to be true for me.

This video is from this morning. Just watch and see what the baby does with the fruit loops even down to the last one in his hand vs the green bean (actually sugar snap pea).
I have said it before that often the biggest obstacle to our family eating well is us. Harsh but true. We often deny them healthy choices because it isn't a choice that we ourselves would make. So we hold them back. Often if we just let them have the opportunity to eat healthy, and we don't act like they should do otherwise, then they will.
Happy Healthy Eating!

Here is a yummy treat. I call it "My sister's oatmeal" because, well, it's my sisters oatmeal. She fixes it differently then I do and it is very yummy. I always think that oatmeal has to be soggy for some reason, which is why my husband does not like it, so here is a great alternative. You will also notice it has zero cholesterol which is a bonus!

I love, love, love this treat, snack, meal whatever you want it to be. It is my favorite! The only thing more delightful than this shake is it's nutritional statistics! 30 grams of protein, 255 calories! Wahoo!

All you healthy eaters are going to laugh at me but tonight was the first time I tried butter nut squash fries and I LOVED them!!! If you think of them as fries you may feel a little jipped but if you think of them as a delicious way to eat an excitingly healthy and savory veggie then you walk away with a smile!
Here is a link to a recipe from hungry girl. It shows a calorie comparison (370 calories for a meager serving of real fries compared to 65 calories of a hearty serving of butter nut). I love it when they do that so I can gloat about calories saved!
