I am a healthy eater. It is mostly my moms fault. She always made us eat healthy when I was growing up and I liked it. Sure, I like to bake, alot, but it is always from scratch and somehow that just seems healthier? (Try to make sense of that somehow) and I am trying to cut back on how much I bake. Like trying not to do it every single day.

I don't know. I would rather eat kale, swiss chard, lentils, edamame, tofu, bulgur, quinoa, beans, hummus, berries, watermelon, etc. than a cheeseburger anyday. It is just my personal preference.
Matt, on the other hand, well he could survive on McDonalds. After watching Super Size Me, he actually wanted to eat a Big Mac. Wierd? Yes.

Well, just like everyone else, we compromise.
I know Matt likes Captain Crunch with Crunch Berries or Strawberry PopTarts for breakfast and because I think it is better to eat something than nothing, at least if you are Matt, I keep a few of his favorite junk foods in stock. I try to hide them from the kids and most of the time they are ok with the fact that certain things are only for Dad.
But sometimes, they throw a fit and really beg for some of it. I break down and give them the occasional PopTart.
How boring would it be if Matt and I loved the same kinds of food? I don't know, but sometimes I wonder.......

Cute! How long before they noticed the poptart? I confess it took me a bit to figure out the connection between the words and the pictures!

Definitely too boring. Opposites attract right?? I remember Dad's secret stashes growing up.

Dallin LOVES pop tarts! They are absolutely one of his favorite things. I'm with you though, I'll take the fresh fruit and veggies over the junk any day - well, most of the time... :)
