Now to my favorite part, the food! This week we are doing a lot more vegetarian meals. No I am not becoming a vegetarian, or a vegan, nor are we going to eat all raw. I’ve just had a taste lately for veggies. And I’ve watched some films over the last year that make me think that more veggies and much less meat is the best way to go.
One of the films that I highly recommend that you watch is called Food Inc. If you have Netflix you can watch it instantly! Here’s a link to a short video that talks about the movie. Another movie that I saw recently was called Forks Over Knives. It’s another great one that’s making me re-think the amount of meat my family consumes. Here’s a link to a post I wrote that has the video trailer of the movie in it.
I don’t want to have a meat debate here, but I do know one thing, our S.A.D diet in America (Standard American Diet) has been slowly killing us. I believe it’s time for ALL of us Fit Moms to rethink what we are putting into our bodies, and our kids bodies. Check out those films on Netflix or get the dvd’s and let me know what you think.
Speaking of eating more veggies. This week I’ll be trying some new recipes. Eggplant Parmesan in the slow cooker for one! I found a blog called “A Busy Moms Slow Cooker Adventures” and found an eggplant parmesan recipe that sounds good and easy. She has a Slow Cooking Through The Holidays theme going on right now, which I think is EXCELLENT! A great way to not stress out. Just make sure you check the ingredients and always think about how you can make things more healthy if they aren’t already. Her traditional Turkey Breast in the slow cooker looks GREAT! Check out the site if you need great slow cooking ideas to help you de-stress.
