And then there's the whole sharing end of things. Healthy junk food is delicious, people. And everyone else wants it too. The problem is 1)I'm the only one who makes it and the time I have to do so it rare and 2) coconut oil, flax meal and other essential ingredients are EXPENSIVE. So I break down and cry when the teenager in the house eats my dessert for breakfast (because they are fast and "have sugar, so it's a good breakfast"- seriously, where does he get these ideas from?!-) or eats my hummus and pepperoni pizza for breakfast (because it was something "new" that Jeremy had made..."new" as in he'd not noticed the 50 other times Jeremy had made it for me). Or the four-year-old who wants to eat MY chocolate covered pretzles because the ice cream and candy she has aren't good enough. And that just comes off as being selfish. But is it? I'm really limited on what I can eat, does that mean I have to give what I'm eating away because it's a novelty to those who can eat everything else in the house? I'm so conflicted. There's sacrificing, and then there's survival. That's a really hard ballance.
Anyway, I tried soy this weekend and it was a bust. Face/butt rash, fussiness, poops- the whole shibang. Of course it could be partially due to the second tooth, but if that's the case, I just need to lay off trying new foods while she's already miserable.
We're thinking of trying beef next. But I'm not sure when.
