We have somehow gotten ourselves in a TERRIBLE style of eating.
Even though we love healthy foods, we eat poorly mostly due (I think) to poor planning and convenience.
DH loves fast food and hasn`t really ever eaten mostly nutritious, natural foods. I on the other hand, know better - and have eaten very very healthy in the past - as a way of life. It seems the month we got married, I let all of this go down the drain and need to get it back!
(I was also pregnant when we got married so this probably has a lot to do with it) DD is 11 months now, and although DH and I both work and have busy schedules, we NEED to find the motivation to get our lives back in order.
Current eating habbits:
I almost entirely -dont- cook. I actually love to cook... so it shouldnt be too hard to convince myself to start again...
We go to the grocery store about twice a week. When we are there, we can usually manage to think of something to make for that nights supper and we get a few basics (milk, bread, cheese, yogurt, eggs, cereal, bananas and other fruit)
All is well until its the next nights supper and we dont have anything planned and we are starving and we go out for dinner or get take out. We eat out for probably 6+ meals a week, most dinners and some lunches. Granted, its not all burgers... we get subway a lot too. I usually get veggie or grilled chicken burgers on whole wheat buns and dont order a drink or fries. But DH is constantly drinking coke, eating fries and burgers. We are still feeding DD a lot of jarred foods. She does get a lot of fruits and veggies and `smoothy` type meals. I`d like to be cooking enough healthy food that we can share together.
do I begin now... how do you find the motivation and discipline to cook every night, plan ahead for meals while working and being mom... We seem to talk about it enough but never actually start...
In writing all of this out im hoping to confront myself over this. Its not something I should be taking lightly.
