Counting Greens vs. Counting Calories

Counting Greens

I love this idea of counting greens vs. counting calories.  It just makes sense to me.  

Each day I cook for 6 people.  I try to make sure that everyone eats a somewhat balanced diet.  Not a daily balanced diet because that would make me go nuts but by the end of the week I want everyone to have eaten some fruit, had a salad or two and didn’t indulge too much on sweets.  

The sweets part is easy–I don’t buy it and I only make it every so often.  I grew tired of the parenting battle of “you can have dessert if you eat your (insert random food item they won’t eat that day) so I eliminated making desserts.  I just required them to eat their food or . . . not.
