Seeing that I’ve lost 5 pounds in less than a month is kind of a big deal for me. I’m so excited. It’s giving me some momentum to stay on top of things this week.
My kids don’t always like what I eat, so asking them what they like to eat is a big deal. I make weekly menus and letting them participate helps a lot. When I make the food they ask for I’ve found that if I can say they asked for what I’ve made they’re more likely to eat it. I think it’s because I can say they chose it and they like being in charge of things.
Some things that my kids love for breakfast are
Bananas and other fruit (but usually bananas)
Pancakes and waffles can be startchy because they’re made with flour, but there are healthy pancake recipes. One I’ve used that my kids love are banana pancakes. Here’s the recipe:
1 ripe banana
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
Mash together. Cook like pancakes. (You can multiply this so you can make however many you need.
My kids are cereal fiends so I don’t make these often (and if my husband cooks he uses regular pancake stuff).
Have a great morning everyone!
