The down side of eating healthy.

Yep!  There is a down side to everything, even eating healthy.  I’m feeling a little down myself today, so I thought that I would share the down sides of eating healthy.

(Sorry for missing last week.  Next week, I will go back to talking about what is in our food.)

1. When you start eating healthy, your body gets used to it.  The up side to this is that you get to where you LIKE the foods you eat, but the down side is that non-healthy foods don’t taste so great and they can make you feel not-so-great.

2. Eating healthy takes time.  When you start cutting out all the junk that is part of the SAD (Standard American Diet), it takes a lot more time to fix foods.  We had hamburgers the other night.  Nice easy meal, right?  Well, not if you have to bake the buns from scratch, and peel the potatoes and chop them up for french fries.  We have many meals that take DAYS to make.

3. It is hard to go anywhere.  If restaurant food makes you feel bad, and food from a box makes you feel bad, it is hard to go anywhere for any length of time and not feel bad. 

4.  People in your family will want to eat at least three times a day, everyday.  That means that you will have to fix them something three times a day, everyday.  If some of your meals take DAYS to prepare, you had better be planning ahead.

OK, I’m done with my rant.  Sometimes though, I wish that we could just eat the same way that everyone else does.

    I would like to strongly echo everything you just said! I plan about three weeks ahead anymore. DH is ready to never eat out again. And sometimes, cereal (very limited selection of those) is eaten just so mom doesn’t have to prepare three meals that day. 🙂

    Cereal! I may have to stock up on the few brands that work for us.
