I've been thinking about our family's diet lately. We do all right. We hardly ever eat out, and the dinners that I cook usually have fresh vegetables in them.
I think our breakfasts and lunches are lacking though. Both of my kids wake up starving and whiny, and toaster waffles and bagels get on the table fast. Lunch time can also be hurried, and I usually don't have the motivation to actually cook a meal. We do always have fruit on hand, but then I often resort to mac and cheese or PB&J or fish sticks. Not that those are horrible things, but I could totally do better. At least some of the time.
So my current goal is to find some interesting breakfast items I could maybe make ahead of time and freeze. I would especially like to get some protein and maybe even veggies into our morning meal. Carbs and sugar seem to dominate right now. And I need to just get motivated for lunch a couple of times a week. I'll let you know.
I'm Cooking: So, in the spirit of this post, I made stir fry noodles with chicken and carrots for lunch. And it really didn't take all that much longer than mac and cheese. Success #1.
