Since starting this endeavor, my kids have taken over my "health" food. So, I make the kids portions of my meals. Just yesterday, we all had bison burger. They had bread, but I put mine in a lettuce wrap. They filled theirs with pickles and all types of cheese. I modrated my cheese. There will be days when I make pizza or something. Then, I'll make myself something else. But I have a feeling they'll want to try my eggplant pizza too! They eat a different breakfast and lunch than me, but dinner is becoming more and more the same. There snacks are usually a little higher in fat than mine; string cheese for them, babybel for me! I'm hoping to see some good results with my oldest daughter too who is of good weight, but has a bit of a belly. Low carb cuts belly fat!

Unfortunately, I have been eating pretty much the same things as everyone else, but oddly enough it's showing that whatever we're eating isn't good for any of us because even my 12 year old has gained some weight. So I'm going to start trying to cook healthier meals for all of us. My daughter needs to learn to eat healthier, too. There's a balance, though. Everything in moderation. You don't have to completely deprive yourself of things you like to eat and that others are eating. Just make sure you have healthy options for everyone.

I'm having a really rough time staying on track when it comes to eating low fat meals! We've been plant-based for six years in my home, but my kids adore things like vegan mac and cheese with daiya or anything with daiya for that matter!

I always plan to just feed the kids first and then make myself something with less fat in it (they're naturally lean kids and all need some weight on them) but when it comes down to it I see that there is still enough food left for me and hell, it's already made and ready to eat!

Do you cook two separate meals, one for yourself and one for your family?
I'm not sure how to go about this when my children need the foods like avocado and things with a higher fat content but I'm trying to ditch the fats.. how do you stay on track when you're cooking for your kids/family?
