I love this... it made me realize I'm not crazy, ha!
I had a really good reminder of this recently when we did the elimination diet... we had rice, sweet potatoes, tapioca, winter squash, kale, spinach, chard, mangoes, blueberries, cherries, pears and dates and that's it to choose from and my daughter actually said, "I'm eating like a queen!" and I got zero issues with the 4yo and toddler, they ate a lot, they ate at meal times and they never once fussed or complained about there being 'nothing' to eat and although I was very busy in the kitchen (with everything needing to be cooked) it definitely made meal time easier for me having very limited options... which of course, begs the question, why'd we ever stray from that?
This book I am going to have to get. I can eat pretty much the same things day in and day out. My hubby on the other hand cant. He can do leftoevers as long as it is not 2 nights in a row. I can have the dinner then have it for lunch and dinner and lunch the next few days ( usually till its gone) but he is only good for about 3 meals and not in a row.
And he is trying to turn the kids that way too. Not conscitously mind you. They have eaten the same thing for lunch since they started table foods. And every so often they wont eat or eat very little. And he tries to tell me that "they are getting tired of it". I think he is tired of making it.
I try to tell him that they cant be tired of something, when they know nothing else.

It was exactly 2 years ago today that I read The China Study and changed my diet forever. I haven't looked back, either.
Happy Anniversary to me!!!
