Hi everyone,
I just joined PTE. I have a almost 4 year old and a 6 and a half year old. I am trying to make the transition to a mostly real food/cook from scratch lifestyle, but my kids are very picky and I am on a tight budget. anyone want to be friends?

    Would love to share ideas with you. My picky eater is my 14-year-old. She loves JUNK! Am looking forward to finding some new recipes to try to entice her into a healthier eating habit.

    Hello PTE Mommas! I'm so ready to be in an online community that plans their meals and shares recipes and ideas. I too have a 14.5 year old that loves fast food, junk and has a low tolerance for dairy and gluten. She also struggles with ADHD and mood right? As for me, I have a candida issue and I'm fighting obesity and poor eating habits. But....I love to cook and always have. Change doesn't happen over night and I believe I can do ALL things through Christ!

    Mom to 7 homeschoolers, use mostly crock-pot recipes, always looking for more. As a certified health coach, I am always searching for low-carb and price friendly options.

    Anyone in this thread is welcome to add me as well! We are definitely budget-oriented and I use my crockpots all the time! Half of my family is gluten free & dairy free and most of the recipes in my collection are safe for them. I also like to eat pretty clean and use whole foods.
