Mac and Cheese has become my biggest torture when offered to my kids. I don’t feed myself or my family with processed or unnatural foods. Ok I take that back, most of the time I try not to do it. (Plus we REALLY like Chick Fil A, but at least that’s a healthier alternative to the Big Mac right?)
For those of you moms or individuals, who have decided to embark in this journey of “we are what we eat,” you know how HARD it is to pass it on to your children. There is a lot, I mean a LOT, of whining and complaining. The peer pressure and the media don’t make it any easier. Even those close to you, who don’t believe in the same way of living as you do, don’t support you in this quest. Sometimes it’s just unavoidable given the culture in which we live in and in the way the schools are run (more so in this state). But how do I know what I’m doing is even worth the effort?
When you daughter tells you that the school lunch choices that day were Mac and Cheese and Salmon Sandwich. The line was out the door for the Mac and cheese (of course); my daughter (regardless of the long line or not) and one other child were the only ones, out of the whole second grade class, who happily stood in the Salmon line. A proud moment for me!
And talking about lines: H&M, one of my favorite stores for years, just opened here a few days ago. The other day, not on opening day, the wait to get in: Two hours. As much as I love the store, think I was going to waist two hours of my time standing in line? Don’t think so.
Maybe people thought the same as me but they changed their mind once they found a DJ had started the party. Made the wait more pleasant I guess…I still didn’t stand in line, but got my picture of a historic moment in the shopping world in Salt Lake City (HA!).
