for those of you who know me well, you know that i do not & have never eaten vegetables. not real ones at least. i like the starchy kinds like potatoes & corn and will eat salad (but really just the lettuce & cheese). as a mom, i want my kids to do better than myself. i want them to not be so picky & to eat healthier than me, so i have started serving them vegetables…. raw! (i can’t cook them… i don’t know how & wouldn’t taste them to see if they are right!). right now we are just serving up carrots, broccoli, and occasionally cauliflower. and I ACTUALLY TRIED A PIECE OF
BROCCOLI the other day. it wasn’t great, but it wasn’t terrible either. kind of like chewing on a piece of grass dipped in ranch. last week, i even started putting some cut up veggies in the food i was cooking…. not sure if i am ‘hiding’ them more for the kids or for myself. i have sliced up carrots really thin & put them in our chicken wraps, and last night put broccoli in our pepperoni calzone!! WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO ME???? why at the age of 30 am i now concerned about eating the thing that i have refused to even try my entire life?
i didn’t get many pics, but here are a couple of the boys eating their broccoli as a pre-dinner snack last week. look ma… aren’t you proud of me?
