Yesterday’s post inspired a lot of discussion after classes as well as on the comment board. While many people agreed with the article and found the sugar video fascinating and scary it became obvious that while many agree with the principles, putting it into practice is another story.
How do we make the transition from a carb-addicted, processed food eating individual to a clean burning healthy superstar? What about when our best efforts are derailed by our families and their eating habits?
Well, if the “usual” style of eating is not right for you, is it right for your spouse and kids?
What about making the transition as a family?
Think it’s too difficult with a family and kids? There have been numerous Roots families that have made the switch with their entire families and we’ll make the argument that doing it as a team is a lot easier than going solo. We’ve heard it all from, “cheerios are just easier than slices of avocado for kids to pick-up, they stick to their fingers better” and “it’s too hard to pack meat (without the bread) in a lunch bag, it might go bad”, to “they get really fussy without some sugar.” These are excuses, not barriers.
A famous Roots quote comes to mind, “I could never give up bread, that’s just ludicrous.”
See above for a picture of this individuals kids’ dinner plate from two weeks ago.
Making it work for a family is possible and worth the effort.
