Well, a lot has been going on here, as always. Lol* Last Monday my Husband had a tooth pulled...he had cracked it the previous Friday on a popcorn kernel, and it became infected over the weekend. After two visits to the Dentist and still bleeding after nearly a week, Friday we ended up in the ER. Turns out Hubby has high blood pressure, and it was preventing him from healing as he should. This sent me into a bit of a panic, as my Husband is only 30, and both of us have strong family history of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and cancer. So I've made a commitment, to re-learn to cook, and to take control of our health, before it's too late. I've talked about this before, but this time it's different. My children are young, and I believe we still have time to prevent major damage in the future, while setting an example for the girls. So yesterday I threw out half of the contents the fridge, and bagged up what could be donated from the cupboard.
I restocked with fresh fruits, vegetables, and meats from our local farm market. My parents shared some easy recipes that will be better for our health, and I think we are on our way. For breakfast we had a slice of toast and fruit. Lunch was salads, with lots of vegetables, and half a baked potato. For dinner, pork roast, with red potatoes, carrots, and green beans. A big change from the sodium packed high fat boxed foods we were eating before. But I think we can do this, and I think it will even be fun. :)
