Not just the pretty, healthy ones either. I post leftovers, hot dogs, and nights out. I do think that people need balance in their lives. I might have a hot dog at party one night for dinner- followed by a veggie packed salad the next.
Here is a round -up of what I served my family every night for the month of June. I can say that June was a really busy month for us. We had activities almost every weekend. We had a lot of fast dinners that aren’t perfect, but I tried to add some veggies or salad to them.
One thing I noticed as I scowered the instagram at other people’s dinners. I might have a bit more food on my plate then other people. There is a good reason for this.
1) I am very active. I participate in a Workweek Hustle group through my Fit bit. I workout at the gym 3-4 days a week, and I spend the rest of my time chasing after my kids. I am usually very hungry when dinnertime arrives.
2) And they’re this……..
Yes. I am 20 something weeks pregnant with my third boy. ( honestly, I wish I could tell you how many weeks I am. Things are different when it’s your third. LOL. ) If you are following my dinners, and see some weird combos- well, that is why 🙂
