Back to Basics Balsmic Vinagrette

That dressing from Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan has been the biggest hit in my household. Athena asks for seconds on salad, tonight it was actually, "Mommy, I looooove that salad, can I have some more!?" We are in total shock as we never thought she'd eat salad and LOVE it! It hasn't won Rowan over just yet, but he is still young so I'll give him time. Athena has actually been killing me at the dinner table. Earlier in the dinner she declared, "Mommy, I LOVE white tortillas!" Wow, what a treat for a poor vegan kid, white tortillas. I always buy whole wheat or corn but today we had a brunch at Grandma's house so I bought some white ones as a "treat". I hope Athena doesn't start bugging me for those now on a regular basis! And one more thing, is it awful that I fed my kids the same thing for lunch and dinner today? They didn't seem to mind one bit, but for some reason I feel kind of bad for doing that:)

I'm happy eating the same things for days if I'm just feeding myself but I always feel like I have to have variety if I'm cooking for others too.

My mum conditioned me to believe that you can't possibly eat the same thing twice in a day - including types of fruit, if you believe that!
Having kids with fussy appetites cured me of that preconception!

You shouldn’t feel bad for feeding them the same meal in the same day. One or two days wouldn’t matter. I think that it is great that you are teaching your children about eating healthy foods and doing the right thing is not always fun. In the end they will appreciate your efforts.
Thanks for your posts. I really enjoy reading, even if I do not comment often.
