We marked our first meatless year with a family, green-faced gag as we walked past the seafood section (and all it’s fishy uckness) at the downtown whole foods. Even the girl was pinching her nose and walking at a rapid-fire pace. And with that we know that we’ve done it! The entire family has been meat-free for a full year and the near-hurl means we aren’t going back.
A nod is in order as well. D has made a complete 360 in his eating habits. It took him years to make the transition complete and (excuse the gush) I am so proud. He’s healthier, more food savvy and happier all around. Food does make a difference!
This year we’ll be taking a closer look at the little processed food that does make it into the house and doing our best to reel in the food budget. It has spiraled a bit out of control in the last half of this year and I am determined to get our eating habits to an “affordable” place.
Looking forward to lots of new recipes, cooking with friends, eating with the fam and watching our daughter’s cooking skills flourish in the coming year.
Happy New Year. Happy Eating.
