This week’s Menu Plan Monday plus food myths, tips for loving your body, getting your kids to eat better, and more!
Hope everyone had a great weekend and a special Mother’s Day! Yesterday I saw so many beautiful photos of families on Instagram and Facebook – I especially loved the vintage pics of my friends as kids with their parents! We had a fun weekend celebrating Mother’s Day and one of my daughters had her first dance recital. I was skeptical of this whole 3-year old dance performance, what with a $95 dress + tickets for the whole family. The cost sure added up and I told my husband I am so not geared to be a stage mom!
But as soon as I saw my little doll in her Rapunzel dress, my heart melted! I was especially amazed by the self confidence of all these 2, 3, 4, & 5 year olds to get on stage in a big auditorium (the same stage Patti Lupone performed on May 2nd!). Besides the adorable dance routine, one of the cutest parts for me was that my other daughter was sitting on my lap missing her twin sister. This is the first time they have chosen to participate in activities separately!
The rest of the day was spent playing outside and having a BBQ with our family. And I think I got my money’s worth on the dress – my daughter insisted on wearing it for most of the day so everyone who wasn’t at the show could see!!
Now, back to regular Nutritioulicious stuff like this week’s menu plan and links I loved from last week, including some from No Diet Day and celebrating National Osteoporosis Month. Check out what’s new below and share something with me:
