Unfortunately, it’s not as easy as telling them to fix it themselves. My daughter will do that, my husband knows better than to say anything about what I’m serving, but I have a son with high functioning autism and his pickiness stems from sensory issues (texture and taste) with foods. I cater to him most of the time, but I make him eat the veggies that don’t disgust him. I do prepare lean roasted meats that I eat with them, but when it’s beef or I’m just not really feeling good, I do my shake thing.
I have never fried things in our home, so I’d say I’m mostly a healthy cook, but we do occasionally have a Chick-fil-A or a burger when we (or mostly they) are on the go. My kids do like potato chips and some junk food, but my daughter loves fruit, veggies, and often eats a salad for a meal. I know what you mean about fast foods and processed food though. It can be a really hard habit to break. I can’t say that gives by up some of those things was easy for me either and sometimes I still crave bbq potato chips or a nutty bar, but I know it will worsen my pain, so I just don’t.
I’m so sorry you can’t eat avocados! I can’t imagine life without them…I love them! I hope that I don’t reach the point where I can’t eat them. I don’t do MCT oil well, it messes my stomach up, so that’s why I lean on the avocados.
It’s been nice chatting with you!
