Learning the whole on the "RAW"!!!
I am a mother of 3 boys, ages 3, 2, & 1. My boys were strickly vegitarians up until maybe a year old, there gma gives them quite a bit more veriety than i would like, she is now working on it, but my boys have developed a taiste to bad foods, junk, candy, sodas, etc. i could go on... i am not a perfect eater, but i have for the most part tried to get my family to eat better and make better choices. But my delima today is my 3 year old is very VERY selective of the veggies he eats and they have to be "COOKED" ( i dont want to have to cook them) a certain way. will only eat raw baby carrots, loves most fruits.... My 2 y/o, i dont think he likes any veggies AT ALL!!! I kep trying, raw and at thisw point, even cooked. he will not eat them, he tells me he dont like them. my 1 y/o, he is weird on texture and will only eat mashed cooked babyfood like veggies and fruit for the most part, will occationally eat COOKED rice, but its really hard for me to find food for them all to eat and like. I dont have a food proccessor, i dont have a fancy blender, just an elcheepo.... I have no clue how to make any raw dishes, i honestly dont know how to eat raw, just that regular fruits and veggies that are not cooked are , DUH, RAw.. lol... Please any and ALL suggestions please on how i can get started eating raw and how i can get my famiyl eating raw and also, maybe some CHEAP* (cause we are limited budget) meal plans, breakfast, lunches, dinners, (Lots of ideas)..... so far all im doing now is fruit for breakfast, fruit for snack, then they end up having cooked meals the rest of the day unless they want more snacks, i give them fruit. So PLEASE if anyone had ALOT of awesoem ideas to help me transition my whole familys lifestyle to this much healthier one, please help me oput. :-) ps. remember i dont have a bunch of fancy kitchen gadgets..... ********. i guess answer me back on here... Ive never used these post sites so im learning how they work to, lol.. ;-)
