adult picky eaters

Posted by on Jul 6, 2010 in Blog Posts | 27 comments

There was an interesting article in the WSJ this morning about adult picky eaters. Please check it out! Picky eating is one of the most common issues I help families with. As you see here, some kids don’t outgrow their picky eating. If you are concerned, read a book, get some help. (Child of Mine, or Secrets to Feeding a Healthy Family, both by Ellyn Satter.) Are you an adult who only eats a handful of foods? Will you share with us, and maybe how you were fed as a child? It was...

When we moved into our house 3 years ago, the owner left an old chest freezer in the basement that he didn’t want to move.   I LOVE IT! This is my first chest freezer– now I don’t know how I would do without it. Keeping track of contents I tried to find a big dry-erase board for the top, but couldn’t, so I just took the wipe-off markers and started writing the contents on the top.

It used to make me crazy when I couldn’t find a recipe I wanted. Was it in my recipe box? That Cooking Light from 2 years ago? Joy of Cooking? etc. I also didn’t like getting my nice books all dirty or saving magazines. I started a 3 ring binder with plastic sleeves a few years ago and have been really happy with it. Its a little extra work at times, but has a lot of benefits. You can display and protect handed-down recipes. See Grandma’s lemon loaf in her handwriting. You...
