As a mother of six active children, stuck right in the middle of my 40’s, eating healthy has become more and more important. In an effort to eat healthier, stay on a budget, and survive the busy lifestyle we have, I have spent a lot of time searching for new recipes that are healthy, quick, convenient, and cost effective.
I have learned that simple and fresh ingredients are the best for my budget and my kids. My family is trying to eat more fruits and vegetables so I incorporate them in every meal – except breakfast, I always forget. I have been surprised with how many vegetables my children will eat, especially if I keep the veggies cut up in the fridge. If the fruits and vegetables are handy, my children tend to snack on those more than the sugar treats – well, at least five of my children do. However, more important than simply providing healthy food now, I am trying to create good eating habits my children will take with them when they leave my home.
