We are changing some things in our house. We are living more like the farmers.
I am now trying to make sure to serve breakfast. Not just expensive, non-satisfying cold cereal. Something heartier. This week I made both granola & bread.
But, the bigger change.... We now eat our main meal at midday. And then, only a light dinner. This is really only our third day on the new schedule. But, so far so good.
Eating more at lunch gives us good energy all afternoon. No need for bad snacks. Like, just digging into the ice cream tub...
Eating a lighter dinner has been sufficient. We haven't been feeling hungry. But rather, much better without eating too much heavy food right before sleeping.
I thought it might be too hard, schedule-wise, since I usually end up having to run an errand in the morning, too. But, with planning ahead, so far, it has worked fine. It even seems easier, since the kids are much more cranky in the evening, when I was trying to make dinner before.
We started doing this with the idea it would be better for us. I think it is better for our metabolism and digestion. I certainly have less terrible pregnancy heartburn at bedtime.
Anyway. We'll see if we can keep this up!
Side note... We had Peyton's birthday party last weekend & I have lost the memory card with the pictures. Pray I find it! If I do, I'll post some!
