I am also a mother a two small toddlers. A month ago I raided my cupboards, and fridge for junk, meats, artifical flavors and more. We are still eating chicken, on tuesdays but are working our way to becoming a vegan. I am struggling this week. I have been working out and trying to sleep but with a 3 year old and a one year old this can be a heavy task. My husband and daughter still eat beef, less pork and chicken but I am slowly wheening them off. I totally get the pressure of others. MY MOTHER AND GRANPARENTS think I will be starving myself and my children but I just know that this is the best thing.
The only thing I am having a difficult time with is eating all Organic. The cost associated is so much over here. My husband is wokring three jobs and I am home with the kids and work at night just to get rid of some debt so this is the thing I have a hard time with.
