This might be harder than I thought...but any improvement is a step in the right direction. I will say there's probably no way stroganoff or meatloaf are coming off the menu. Just sayin'.
Plus, we have this amazing garden, so it's not like it's a stretch to eat tons of fresh, organic produce as often as we can, (sometimes by the wheelbarrow load)...I just need some more creative ways to make vegetables more of a "main dish" rather than a side dish (no offense, Martha, but I'm branching out).

The best thing I found, though, is "Back to Eden". This is super cool, because just the other day, after writing a whole memory of my childhood where my mom spent a year trying really hard to make us be vegetarians (which didn't work), I remembered that she always had this book called "Back to Eden". And then...there it was, right there on the shelf at Barnes and Noble. Of course I grabbed it. Reading it feels like coming home. No wonder we never went to a doctor...

I may have frowned a lot at her food choices for us as kids (all those lunches of home-made whole wheat sandwiches, cookies full of nuts, and garbanzo beans in the meatloaf), but the older I get, the more I believe: Moms really do know best. Especially now that I'm a mom. (Right, kids?? Kids?)
