So I've started giving the kids some nut milk here and there - whatever I have in the fridge, right now it's walnut - and I think it's funny the things that run through our heads. I didn't start giving it to them as a replacement for dairy milk I just wanted to see if they liked it and they do so I give it to them probably once a day - or every other day. Then I start thinking - eek is it too much nut product (they get nuts in other things I make)... then I have to check myself and remember that people don't hesitate to give their kids copious amounts of dairy milk (a known allergen along w/ other things) and here I am worrying about some nuts. They show no signs of allergy at all so why should I be worried. They like, they are happy - I am happy.
I was thinking about it for me too.. I eat quite a few nuts in any given day be it snacking on nuts and raisins, having nut milk in a smoothie or nuts in some dish I'm having - it's one of three fat sources for me and I know that fats are good. My point? I don't really know. I guess it's just funny how we have to reprogram ourselves. In the past I wouldn't allow myself to eat peanut butter (back in my disordered fat free days) and it's amazing how strong a hold something like that can have on you. Now I eat only raw nuts and I eat them freely, but every now and then I find myself thinking... 'hmm I shouldn't eat so much of this." ... anyway. I just find it interesting how things stick w/ you... even if they are wrong.
We are looking forward to Grandma Lynda's visit next week. I can't believe that it's November already. I remember when her trip was booked it seemed so far away... this only means that 2008 is RIGHT around the corner. I'm not sure if I'm ready for that!
