I've written at least once before on my love of menu plans. We're still big fans of them, although of late they have become rather move vague (i.e. seven days of 'cereal or porridge' for breakfast and a list of seven dinners. Lunch is basically whatever you can find). However, in the past week we've begun a bit of a health kick, broughy on partly by my determination to finally kick the last bit of baby weight and also by me completely failing to take care of what I was eating and ending up really very run down and rather anaemic a few weeks back (turns out that looking after two children is even more knackering if you don't watch your diet). Naturally, my boys are perfectly healthy, but I was spending so long rushing around making sure that they were ok and eating the right things that I wasn't spending nearly long enough ensuring that I was doing the same.
And so, after a short absence, sensible quantities of red meat, fish, duck eggs and fresh veg aplenty are back on the menu. And that menu is rather more carefully thought out for everyone in the family than in recent months.
Oh, and if you're thinking of having your own mini-health-kick, I got a lot out of reading Master Your Metabolism by Jillian Michaels and can recommend pretty much any of her workout videos (I particularly like Shred and Ripped, mostly because they're very short, so the pain doesn't last too long. I am not a fan of actual proper exercise, so I like it to last as little time as possible).
