Sometimes I DON'T want to cook!
When we travel, eating out can be really difficult. So if I know in advance where we are going, I usually look up the menu online and figure out what I will have from there. Lots of restaurants now list the nutritional and allergen contents so if you are dieting, have food allergies or just limited dietary needs, you can find out what food on that menu will work for you. :)
I cannot entirely control the food that my kids eat at school, but I can teach them the art of moderation and how to make good choices. Instead of Cheetos, they can have regular Lays or Baked Lays with their sandwiches when we are out. I can help them learn that too much of the stuff that we put in our bodies can be filled with chemicals and can cause sickness. I let my kids have a cupcake at birthday parties. I let them have candy at Halloween and I don't freak out about it.
I just provide good healthy food in our home.
