Most of the time, I try to cook as healthy as possible. Fresh greens, fruit, whole grains, fat free, as little pork as possible and I cut down on the sugars big time. But once in a while, you really want to enjoy a delicious but not so healthy meal. Now what's wrong with that? I'm not Barbie and I wouldn't want to be Barbie either. I do my best most of the times. When I look around me, I see people buy take away and prepared meals. I hardly ever do that. I still cook fresh meals on a daily basis, even when it's sheer chaos over here. But that's how I want it. I want to know what's in our meals. Whenever I ask my family what they want for dinner, they are indifferent. It doesn't matter.. I think they forget how much time and effort I put in cooking a decent meal. Sometimes they just want to go out for pizza or fries. I wonder if they would still be as indifferent, if I would stop cooking fresh meals? Would they eat sandwiches instead? Or would they go out to dinner on a daily basis? Maybe I should test them.. If take away is what they want, I won't stop them. I'm their cook, not their doctor. I take care of my health. I can only hope they take care of theirs. I'm not going to fight over it. I think I have done the best I can to teach my family about healthy food. It's up to them to decide how they want to feed their bodies..
