I made a tuna salad for my son Maks and for myself.
I loved it so much. All the ingredients combined well. I loved sundried tomatoes and baby capers. I did not added salt as I do not need it. Capers were salty enough.
My tuna salad was delicious and healthy, joyful food. However, I loved it, I was not sure about Maks. Would he like it? He is a tuna eater but in an effortless way. Usually, on its own, plain tuna. I know how this sounds. But to be honest, whatever he eats it, it is good! I am happy! Anyway, I gave him to try my colourful mixture. I made it for him like a sandwich! First of all, I used a seeded bread roll. Also, I added a spoon of yogurt-mayo. Finally, I loaded it into his sandwich. And then what? After the first piece he had another one, and another, and then another. It seems like he liked the salad! Happy days!
Children often choose crisps and pizza and do not eat enough salad. Making salad for yourself it will benefit your loved ones too! For sure!
If you make them eat it, of course! 😊
We are the parents, we buy the food, we make it! If I buy pizza and garlic bread and crisps and biscuits we all will eat it! And we will survive, but will that be good for us? I am not so sure!
I love balanced diet! I worry less about Maks when he eats fresh, healthy food, and avoids unhealthy snacks. What are the ways to eat healthier?
Few simple methods:
- think about your food,
- plan your meals,

- drink a water

But, but, but…. Live without any naughty food will be boring!
Isn’t that right?
Ok! Yes, leave a LITTLE space for the naughty things too!
