Practicing what I preach. In the internship rotation I’m at right now, I spend all day counseling obese kids. One of the things we talk about is making half their plate fruits and vegetables, and eating healthy sides even when they eat things like pizza. Over the weekend, hubby and I wanted pizza…so we picked one up from our favorite restaurant…and then we brought it home.
We each had a couple of pieces and we filled the rest of our plate with healthy sides likes apples and green beans 🙂
