I am a nibbler, a snacker, and I hate kale and quinoa!
I am grossed out by most of the "healthy" food I see grace the pages of my social media. I'm putting my foot down- I don't want to eat like an adult anymore...
I don't want to eat like an adult anymore!
A recent experiment was completely unintentional. A couple months ago, my son and I were sick with a stomach bug. When we were in the process of recovering, we ate similarly. Applesauce, rice, sweet potatoes, yogurt, juiced fruits and veggies, and kids snack bars.
The idea was born. What if I ate like a 4yr. old? Would I feel better? Would I lose the last 10 lbs.?
After all, I feed my kids better than myself. I track their fruit and veggie intake more than my own! I developed the idea even further. What if I treated myself as well as I would if I were mother to myself; giving myself care and attention? Took a nap every once in a while? Yes, please! I ate like my son for a week and found my digestion was improved as well as a couple pounds gone.
Here's my 30 Day self-experiment (you're welcome to join me or follow): Eat and tend to my needs as if I were 4 yrs. old. Yes, I realize I must drive, pay bills, and all that other adult jazz, but I'm thinking there's some serious self-improvement on its way in the next 30 days! I've even bought a couple of toddler/kid cookbooks. I can't stand all this strange stuff I see cooking out there. No, I will not put chia seeds on my cereal. Nasty! I like the simple foods I put in front of my kids and it's time I do myself the favor too!
