What a proud Mama I am. Throughout my dieting/training for my first fitness competition, Alexander has decided to try what his Mama had been eating for the last 10 weeks. Sunday, he lunched on baked tilapia, steamed brocolli and a sweet potato! This boy also loves baked chicken.
Even though I didn't place or get a trophy, I still feel a winner ... a winner in the sense that my son has absorbed clean eating at the early age of 2 and Mommy hardly struggles in getting him to eat clean foods. Monkey see, monkey do, right? ...
I am fortunate and blessed to be a WAHM (work-at-home-mom) that I am able to cook him a hearty breakfast that consists of 1 scrambled egg w/ 1% milk, homemade oatmeal w/ cinnamon and fresh fruits. I make his scrambled egg every other day and the days he does not have an egg, he has a small bowl of cheerios w/ sliced mangoes and greek yogurt.
Clean eating is all about balance, moderation and not depriving yourself of the healthy foods (dairy, whole grains and fruits). I always say that our plates should be colorful. At our house, I strive for my boys to eat as clean as possible and we cheat 1 to 2 meals on the weekends. A balance of lean proteins, complex carbs and healthy fats is maintenable, sustainable and realistic for my family of 3.
I LOVE being a Mommy ... so rewarding. Alexander's healthy journey starts now! ...
