"Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants."
I am feeling an incredible transformation happening whenever I step outside and feel the warm sunshine on my face! Are you feeling it, too?
I want to be out in that fresh spring air as much as possible and I want to be able to bring more green, nourishing goodness back inside with me, too. On the warmest afternoons I get to throw open a window, hang some laundry outside so that it smells oh so good. And I get to choose to bring more fresh, real food into my kitchen whenever I need it...
After a winter of hearty meals and plenty of muffins and cookies straight from the oven, I am ready to lighten up. My body is telling me to grab more veggies (and fruits) and a lot less of everything else. So, I'm planning to have some fun in the kitchen in April, playing around with more vegan and raw dishes, and I think I'll blog a bit about that here.
I also want to revisit a few of my favorite simplicity parenting tips for getting organized around mealtime and making that time together as a family really special. (In full disclosure, I have one very picky eater and often feel my blood pressure rising at the dinner table...so I'm really looking forward to a month of relaxing, simplifying and having fun in the kitchen!)
I hope you'll check back often and share your mealtime challenges and triumphs in the comments. We'll keep it light, fresh and fun all month long.
