How to make healthy food more family friendly — this is one of the questions I get asked over and over again.
But before we get into my answer, check out my latest video, featuring one of my most family friendly recipes: Veggie Packed Chili.
When my clients are trying to eat more plant-based — or they’re doing my Camp Kale program— they want to know how they can get their family to eat what they’re eating… and get away from making two different meals at dinner time.
I wish I had a silver bullet for everyone. I really do.
But the short answer is this: it takes time. And patience. And flexibility. And a whole lot of meeting people where they’re at on their wellness journey.
That said, let’s get into the longer answer.
As Simon Sinek says in his bestselling book, Start with Why, “the role of a leader is not to come up with all the great ideas. The role of a leader is to create an environment in which great ideas can happen.”
He also says, “There are two ways to influence human behavior: you can manipulate it, or you can inspire it.”
Okay, so how do we stop trying to force people (and ourselves!) to do what we want… and instead, provide that inspiration, that spark?
Here are some ideas to help inspire your loved ones to try, enjoy, and eventually choosehealthier foods.
