The kids have been eating so well for the last year it is amazing to see how much they have expanded their food variety and how much better they eat compared to normal adults. They probably eat more greens and fruit than a normal adult. Their eating habits were a short list of menu items a few years ago and now they eat so many new things and snacks have gone from majority of their diet to MAYBE one small snack a day. It is really nice to see them eating healthy and liking it. They are aware of what they eat and like to learn about calories and sugars and the ingredients in their food.
A few veggie bloggers I follow have always inspired me to make healthy snacks for them and myself and since the cooking bug is back, I have been making things on my days off that I didn't get to make in a long time or had planned to but never felt like getting to it. The peanut butter banana chip muffins are a hit at home and I am so happy to add another new healthy snack to our menu.

Sometimes I feel like it is worse to be aware of the issues we have in ourselves, because if we are aware of them, we should be able to stop them and do things differently. I'll catch myself saying I wish I could just be ignorant to them and not know why I felt a certain way because then it's not like I know what I need to do..I don't know...which may be better than knowing and not fixing it! OHHHH the joys of being a girl/mom/human who has major self image and confidence issues. GRRRRRRRRRRRRR
