Good food brings people to a table. To laugh, to share stories, to engage in conversation. The stigma that healthy food can’t possibly be delicious is one that I feel needs to be broken. Wholesome, nutrient-rich, healthy food that fills us up and pleases everyone’s tastes is possible.
I have a confession to make. Before I became a Mom, I had idealistic views of what mealtime would look like. Kids eating their vegetables, being open to trying new foods, conversations around the table with everyone happily eating their foods, and “knowing” that if all they are given is healthy foods, they will only eat healthy foods.
