What inspired/prompted you to start @mydiaryofus?
I originally started my blog when my husband got a new job and I had to start a new career because we moved in the middle of nowhere! I was cooking all the time and had a few friends encourage me to start a blog…so I did and had no idea that it would lead me to where I am today! Now my motivation is my son who I want to teach to live a healthy lifestyle as well as fall in love with the kitchen too! I also always want to inspire other families in their own kitchen and my hope is that they will feel more confident about feeding their family in a healthy way!
What is something you have learned from another #foodiemom and applied to your own cooking/meal strategy/etc.?
Oh wow, I learn so much from so many #foodiemoms on a daily basis! But I would say one thing that they all have in common is to not pressure your kids to eat something, just keep exposing them to healthy foods and they will come around! I have found this to be so true with my own son!
What is a food or nutrition related goal that you have for 2018 for yourself or your family?
My big food goal for 2018 is to take better care of myself nutritionally. As moms we tend to run ourselves thin and end up eating leftovers off of toddler plates instead of making ourselves a lunch that we can enjoy and that our bodies will benefit from! If we take care of ourselves, then we end up being better moms, better wives, and are happier too!
