I feel like this past while has been somewhat of my ‘lazy chef week’. My motivation and inspiration to cook has been lacking. We snacked out a lot. And we had grilled cheese twice. Granted, it was more lunch and not her dinner, but still, grilled cheese is rare around here unless we have soup to go with it…. and there was no soup. But of course, when we have meals like grilled cheese for lunch, we make sure to have extra veggies and some protein for dinner too. We balance our daily meals the best we can to make sure we get a bit of everything in one day. So now, when you see posts of grilled cheese’s and mac and cheese’s don’t assume (I typed “awesome” instead of “assume” *freudian slip*) our diet is slipping. It’s not. We like the occasional (vegan) grilled cheese just like anyone else 😉 but maybe, we didn’t post the partnering healthy meal, cause you’ve already seen it.
Also, I’m noticing these posts are either going to become slightly repetitive or just contain less meals… because you know, there are certain meals that are staples around here that we eat at least biweekly.
In general, my Diet Water section is lacking. There are so many things I wanted to write about… and just never find the time to. Finding all the links to back up my words is more time consuming than I would have imagined… and time is something I just don’t have. Also, I never have the time to read any new journals, articles, and blogs… so if I’m not reading them, then it kind of makes it impossible to share the info here. Maybe one day I can get back to writing about organics and posting about how to have a healthy vegan pregnancy, but for now, I’m going to focus on the food we eat here. I’ve realized that people are asking for recipes for things I make pretty on a pretty regular basis…things that I would never think to take pictures and blog about! So as difficult as it may sometimes be, I want to try to post a recipe… if not weekly, then biweekly on this thing.
Also, I plan on posting my tips on cooking with a baby (14 month old crazy toddler) soon. It’s not always easy, and some days it’s damn near impossible, but hopefully at least one tip will help other mamas having a hard time cooking with a baby… but we’ll see. I know the biggest thing that has helped me is the size of my home, and I doubt anyone is going to move into a 600 square feet home to make cooking easier 🙂
