This is embarrassing. We used to do so good in eating nothing with HFCS, white flour, crap. But we have fallen and it is beginning to get ugly in our house. I kind of blame my DH- but that isn't totally fair either. Long story short- my DH loves junk. Red Bull and now 5 our energy shots (yikes), chips, and chocolate. I never used to buy this type of crap- but since he is an adult and all- he just drives to get it and let me tell you- it drives me up the freaking wall that he will invent an errand to drive 12 miles round trip to buy a red bull and hershey bar. Aaagh. I try to save us money and there it goes. So I bought some of it becuase I thought that it was cheaper in bulk and no extra gas. Well- that hasn't really worked out so well either- because now my kids are turning into junkies. Well- me a little too.
I try to feed them up at meals- but my DH won't eat carbs (as in potatoes, squash, sweet potatoes, brown rice, egg noodles, orwhole grain bread/busicuts- I don't use white flour at all). And he doesn't like veggies- like at all. It is so frustrating. Because he is all "carbs make you fat". But anyway. Then we have started a family night on Sunday- which started out wih a movie and popcorn- then DH insisted that we have pepsi with our popcorn. So now the kids beg for that.
So wise mamas- how do I fight this? I know it shouldn't even be in the house- but what do I do with DH? I need suggestions- because DH has unbelievably hightriglycerides and now my kids have a few cavities each and I am just a loser mom.
