we're all spoiled!

I don't feel well today and in consequence, will be a bit snarky that ok with you all?

Why are we all so dang spoiled? Why do we eat the way we do? Can't we just eat what we need? What our ancestors used to eat? They didn't spend hours in the kitchen.

Breakfast=cornmeal mush
Lunch=leftover cold cornmeal mush squares with an apple
Dinner=lentil soup

The lentil soup was probably made weekly and by the time the week was done might have been nice and fermented. LOL

Why do we think we need a 3 course meal plus dessert for every meal? My kids have started to get into the habit of asking what's for dessert even for lunch. I'm tired of it. I'm done.

I didn't sign up to be a gourmet cook and a restaurant.

They used to be happy with maltomeal with water, a pb and j sandwich with water, and beans for dinner, A treat was when once a week we'd make carob brownies for family home evening.

OK, snarkiness done, now after I'm through being sick i have to do something about it.

I feel ya! When we first went on the FG program, I was so exciting, I was baking up a storm, the kids loved it!! But, all good things must come to an end, jk :-)
They have gotten used to homemade pancakes each morning, ect. They used to get junk cereal that took no time and was 99 cents a bag.
Im not saying I regret it, I believe 100% in Feingold!! I just fell into a trap of baking lots of sweets, and almost to order.
Now Im at a place where Im adding back in LOTS of fruits and veggies, and either they eat it, or go hungry. They wont die from missing a snack!! Id like to get to a place where we are about 80% raw, but dont know if I can actually get the kids there??...
All that to say, I feel ya!!
