Eat Your Fruits and Veggies
Since we watched "What's on Your Plate" last week Grace has turned into a brand new person as far as her diet goes. I have had to purchase produce twice in 10 days and about to go back for more tomorrow. Of course there are three other people in the house eating it too. I am so proud of her. Instead of eating chips and crackers, etc. for snacks and with her lunch she now picks carrots, apples, pears, nuts, mandarin oranges, and cantaloupe. She even looked at all the labels of the items we purchased at the last grocery trip and was disgusted at the long list of ingredients. As each week goes by we are trying to change some things about our diet. The local produce store we have is small and doesn't really carry organic items. I do purchase nuts and honey from this store too. On the list tomorrow to purchase will be apples, bananas, pears, strawberries, cantaloupe, nuts and honey.
