Food, Inc.

I have always been really into eating healthy. Unfortuately at times, I wish I wasn't so obsessed. There are times when I would just love to have the attitude to eat just whatever I choose, but fitting into those perfect skinny jeans just overwhelmes me. Last week watching Oprah, changed my life...at least for the next few weeks. I wish I had the willpower to be a vegan...but cheese just calls my name waaaaaay too often. So, I opted to go the organic route, especially with meat and dairy. Watch this movie. It'll change how you eat. Not only am I changing the way I eat, I am changing the way the kids eat. I am guilty.... open our freezer and bags of dino nuggets, bagel bites and other frozen goodies we've picked up at Costco for the the twinnies to eat fall out. I am no longer going to feed my children processed food. I am sure they will not like the new food choices presented to them, however at this stage in their life, they have no choice. I am going to get off my lazy, pregnant ass and put more thought into their food. Wish me luck...I am up against two 2 year olds.....
On a side note: It's pretty sad when you drive by Dairy Queen and the twins say "ice cream", Campus U Tote Em is "sandwich" and McD's is "french fry".

I completely agree. Jesse and I watched Oprah and now we have to watch food inc. I am so surprised and seeing those chickens makes me never want to eat chicken again.

Where I lack is the meats and milks/juices. I don't buy them from the health food store "organic". I wish we bought all organic meats, it's just hard. The 1 health food store is on the entire other side of town. Seriously like an hour from our house. I've rarely given Stella processed but she doesn't miss it since she doesn't know the difference. She eats a tiny bit of meat but mostly veggies/proteins/ and fruits. She LOVES pastas so we do wheat. I need to try to be more aware of balance. More beans and healthy proteins. We try though. :) She'll get an occasional mac and cheese if we have it but probably once every few months. Ok I'm rambling on but I think this is an area that is hard for most people. Don't worry kids memory is pretty short, a few weeks and they'll be asking for edamame not ice cream! Haha. You wish, huh.
