I have tried couponing, various meal planning systems, and the ever-loving crockpot. I have three of the most picky eaters on the planet so when I spend hours planning, preparing, and serving a meal only to have my kids stick up their noses to the food served, I'm spent. I am a vegetarian, my husband is a total carnivore, and there is no telling when or what my kids will eat. Hiring a full time chef is not in the budget but, definitely the first thing we will buy with our lottery winnings.
I see friends, bloggers, instagram feeds, facebook posts, and Pinterest pins of these other incredible women providing healthy meals for their families every single day and I want to be like them... really I do. I just can't stand being in the kitchen for longer than I have to [are you hearing me stomp my foot and pound my fist on the kitchen counter?]. Listen, I've got years ahead of me before I'm being fed daily meals in a retirement home (totally looking forward to my days of endless Bingo, by the way). I know I have to cook so, I want to enjoy it! How can I change my attitude and perspective about food?
Your advice is greatly appreciated.
