I am four and a half months pregnant, a long-time vegan, and I enjoy cooking and eating a variety of foods. I love spices, trying new recipes, and many different soups and casseroles, often with many different vegetables, big chunks of onion, etc. In other words, I don't eat many typical "kid" foods. I have cooked for children before, but I always made them separate dishes, sometimes using the same main ingredients, but preparing them much more simply. This went fairly well, but when I have my own child, I would like us to share family dinners most of the time.
Has your cooking changed much since you've had children? Do you find that you've abandoned many of your old favorite dishes, or that you now mostly make the same few dishes your kids like, instead of trying new things? Has it changed in any other way, such as becoming healthier because you care so much about your kids? I'm trying to get a feel for what's ahead of me.
