So I am just a big ol’ basket of failure this month. I spent the beginning of March not running because it was cold and I was whiny and then I started running again and almost immediately tweaked my hip to where it even hurt to walk. Then spring break rolled around and I iced my hip and sat around with my kids. My food tracking goal has gone extremely poorly and I’ve completely fallen off the quitting soda wagon.
March has been rough in terms of health goals. On the other hand, March has been tremendous in terms of rodent population growth.
I’m still fighting though. I’m going to go running Saturday and Sunday this weekend and I’m going to try to get my food and water back on track. Along those lines, I am looking to make Team Stimey’s food healthier. I want to get less of our food from boxes and bags and jars. I like the idea of fresh food and think it will be good for everyone, but I’m not quite sure where to start.
Does anyone have any good suggestions for where to get some recipes or meal plans for fresh, simple food from scratch? I have some criteria though:
1. The recipes have to be easy, because I am not a good cook.
2. The recipes have to be simple, because I am a lazy cook.
3. The recipes have to be not fancy, because my kids are extremely picky and won’t eat food that has a lot of ingredients.
4. I’m happy to look at blogs and websites, but actual paper cookbooks tend to work better for me.
Help? Also wishes of good luck for getting back on the health bandwagon are welcome.
