A week of lunches...
It's been a huge week of food learning in our nest. Everyone has tried something new. I've enjoyed sharing some of the foods I love with everyone. Previously they've turned noses up to things like mussels and gravlax and pate. Now they're all willing to have a try and we're all finding new favourites. Our palates have changed. Now I hear "Yay! Green smoothies!" as I prepare some for breakfast, to wash down our fermented cod liver and butter oil.
We've found the garden is invaluable for keeping our food fresh and yummy, so we've spent some time tending it and planting the first of our summer food. The herb spiral is amazing! Best of all, we've found out more about local food. What things cost and why. We've found out which is cheaper and fresher and we've falling in love with the farmer's market all over again.
We've eaten well. And we're noticing the benefits hugely. We have more energy, clearer minds. Tiny's teeth are remineralising!Yay! Best of all, we're thinking about what we eat. We're eating a hearty lunch as well as breakfast and dinner. And prioritising it, so rather than getting to the end of a day without eating, we're all feeling happy, lucky, well fed and nourished.
How about you?
Do you eat a good lunch?
Do you make time for it?
Have you ever changed the way your family eats for the better? xo
