Reevaluating Eating Habits

As the seasons of life change, so do our eating habits. I used to be able to skip breakfast, scarf down a candy bar and Coke mid-morning, eat a few slices of pizza at mid-day, another Coke in the afternoon, and a full meal of whatever sounded good at supper.

What I could get away with at sixteen is no longer possible — or even desirable. Blech! Don’t tell my kids I had such a horrible diet.

Twentysome years later, I’ve reformed my ways. I’ve kicked my soda habit and reduced our family’s intake of processed sugars. But,with each season — whether it’s a season of life or another few pages on the calendar, I find that adjustments are always needed. Reevaluating my eating habits — and those of my family — becomes a regular ritual.

Head here to read the rest of my post at Food Your Way and find out how I’m working to balance healthy eating with a busy life.

  1. I used to drink three Moutain Dews a day and have a big Mounds Bar. Now just thinking about that makes my stomach turn!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
