Food for Thought

I recently cut sugar and wheat out of my diet. It was awful at first. But now I am far enough along to start noticing some benefits. One of which is that I am sleeping better, which in turn has given me mental clarity and much more patience than I am used to having.

So often when our kids are having troubles we look to their diet and make adjustments to help them thrive, but how often as parents do we look at our own diets as affecting our emotions and mental state? We need to take care of ourselves so we can take care of those precious kiddos.

I'm not saying what I did will be best for everyone, just offering some food for thought.
