Today’s Mantra: Positive thinking will bring you positive outcomes
Ok, so I have had my rant and no longer want to hear myself talk about sick children. If I follow the advice on “The Secret” I am probably attracting more sickness to my house by thinking (and blogging) about it incessantly.
You know what?
I am incredibly lucky. My children can feel sunshine on their faces, are growing up strong and will give you a grin in a second. We have a lot more than most.
Continuing my health research and education, it seems that everywhere I turn there is infomation to prove we need to be cutting things from our diet.
Quitting sugar is a huge buzz word right now. If you are doing this, plus you are gluten free and lactose intolerant you are bang on trend.
But what do you eat?
It sounds more complicated than it actually is. I don’t claim to be doing any of these things but by continuing my wholefood and organic journey these kind of meals are happening more and more for me.
Fillet steak, green beans and a salad.
Baked fish and roast vegetables
Poached egg with baked beans
Oysters (though it has been a long time!)
Salads with some kind of protein (tuna, chicken, egg)
The thing is I don’t believe I need to go gluten free, dairy free or sugar free. I know (from my disastorous detox experience) that it will make me obsessive and crave what I can’t have.
I still like my coffeee with a dash of milk. I eat bread. I like butter in my mashed potato.
So what I am trying to say to all those Mothers out there interested in changing their family’s health habits (well those who are lucky enough not to have with children or family members who are gluten or lactose intolerant)…is that it doesn’t have to be all or nothing.
Make little changes.
Make wholefoods a priority.
Then enjoy your desert without a side of guilt
Just about to head off for my first run with the Mountain Buggy and child in tow. Wish me luck!
