What foods do you and your children eat almost every day??
For me (I guess this changes from season to season):
*avocados
*almonds
*apples
*hempseed oil
*Rice Dream

ds:
*oatmeal w/ flaxmeal
*Rice Dream
*Avocados
*Rice Cheese
*almond butter
*brown rice

dh:
*hemp waffles
*hempseed oil
*turkey and cheese sandwhiches
*granola w/ Rice Dream

Now these are just the foods we seem to eat over and over almost every day... we do eat other foods as well
