This month’s blog post
This month's blog post was written by a client who’s son recently underwent a food challenge for walnuts.  Have you ever wondered what would happen during a food challenge from a clinical and emotional perspective?  I think you will enjoy reading about her experience.  The results will surprise you! 

This client still keeps telling me how invaluable our coaching relationship was before and after the food challenge. Contact me today so you can realize how beneficial coaching support can be!

Blue Apron 
As I mentioned in my last newsletter, we tried a new way of cooking.  Initially I wanted to try this new concept because it made it easier to bring our meals with us on vacation.  However, since this particular winter has given us cabin fever, we are trying it for a few more weeks.  I wanted to share with you some of the advantages and disadvantages we’ve experience with this new service.
  • Advantages
    • We are trying new things!
    • All of the ingredients are pre-measured and delivered to my front door along with simple, easy to follow instructions.
    • It allows me the opportunity to spend quality time with my younger daughter.  She’s my helper, and a ‘do’er.   I am teaching her how to cook!
    • We order meals for two people; plenty for two adults, and at least one child.
  • Disadvantages
    • It takes well over an hour to make each new recipe.
    • The minimum number of meals per week is three (but you can skip a week).
    • If you decide you don’t want to make a recipe in that particular week, you can freeze the meat or fish, but it’s hard to freeze the fresh produce.
    • I still need to have something quick on hand in case one of my kids doesn’t like it… Quite often I say…”Thanks for trying!”
Now that my older daughter has ‘worked through’ most of her food allergies, we are in a new place.  From an etiquette perspective I have explained that if she goes to someone’s house for dinner, it is only proper to try something new.  It doesn’t matter – I still get the “yuck” face when it comes to eating new vegetables; no matter how they are prepared.  We are working on that!
To wrap it up, I’m not sure that this new service will sustain us when the weather gets warmer.  We will have fresh produce from our garden.  I’m a very creative cook and normally like to put what I have on the counter and whip something up, but short term it’s a novel way to try something new!
