Ever since I have educated myself more about "food" - I have become increasingly paranoid. I am not wasteful, so I have been using the pantry items Michael brought over from his place....and last night I made the kids one of those packet side dish things - macaroni cheese (I added bacon & they had had veggies for afternoon tea). It was hard, I was almost going to throw it out! But then I felt ungrateful and that I was being a food snob. So I cringed and fed it to them - and promised next time I would make my own super tasty version with wholemeal pasta and flour....and real cheese!
Today I am baking biscuits to fill my "cookie" jar (one of my awesome op shop items - post to come!) and I have spent ages on the internet looking for healthy recipes, but I am lacking ingredients as my pantry is not fully stocked yet....
ANYWAY....I baked jam drops using Michael's white flour, and then couldn't handle it and added a quarter of a cup of flaxseed meal (linseed meal).
Do I have a problem??
I still want my kids to enjoy snacky treats and not feel deprived, I would just prefer for them to have healthy options most of the time....
I also read an article posted on a friends facebook page, "Motherhood Matter: Happy and Fat" from MormonTimes.com - read it, tell me what you think!
I love good food (no really I love to eat, just ask Michael!), and I love being fit and strong and looking good in my clothes - so I am trying to find a balance - Can I have a great body and be a happy mummy?
So add this to my resolution list for the year, 'Compile 50 super tasty and incredibly healthy recipes'.
PS. My biscuits were a hit!
