My two year old has a fever. I have some organic Echninacea Elder Tea in the house. I brewed a cup of hot tea, sweetened it with honey, and then poured it over ice (he hates warm tea). He immediately started screaming "no tea! no tea!"
Next, I poured about 1/3 of a cup into a cup full of juice and then gave it to him. He drank it right down. I dislike relying on the juice as it's easy to get too much sugar into him or cause diarehea, but what else can I do? I haven't tried diluting it with rice milk, so that will be next I suppose...
Breakfast consisted of scrambled eggs with onions, garlic, cheese and kale! Yum! I also prepared a rye apricot bread for myself. Both kids hated it, and I absolutely loved it. Oh well. Win some, lose some.
Miss C: I purchased the "cook for your type" book and then wrote down the number of recommended servings for each category. For ex: Beans and legumes 5- 7 times per week. After I had eaten a serving, I checked it off and made certain that once a category was full, I moved on to the others. Many times, I found myself with beans at the end of a week! But that little list posted on my fridge really helped me stick to a healthy meal plan. Good luck.
P.S. - I lost one pound a week on average. So ,yes, it does take a little time.
