That's my secret subtitle for this blog. It's all I want, really. How a grown-up eats is still an evolving idea for me, but there are a few basics.
Grownups eat meals. At the table. With fruits and vegetables.
Grownups drink tea or water, not soda.
Grownups don't need dessert every day. Definitely not twice a day.
Grownups watch the starchy stuff.
Grownups don't snack on junk.
Am I a grownup? Getting there, I guess. I'm poignantly aware of how important it is to provide a healthy food culture to my kids, and how far I have to go. It's hard, with recitals and practices and rehearsals, to get a good dinner on the table every night. It's hard to limit sugar without demonizing it.
I had one hell of a day-- son is stranded at an airport 1,000 miles away, youngest got in hot water for bringing her rubber Prince of Persia dagger to school. I really wanted a diet soda, which is my selected vice. Instead I had a glass of wine. Much more effective :)
What does "grown up" mean to you?
