Striving Bean – Good Food to Feed Your Family.
You’re busy, you don’t want to go broke, and you want to feed yourself and your family good food. Me too.
I’m Micaela Vega – a web professional, working mother of 2, writing about bringing healthier food options to my family.
Sometimes my kids like it, sometimes they don’t. I’ll let you know about both. I’m a realist with hope!
With experience and experimentation, I’ve learned creative ways to incorporate healthier choices onto our family’s plates.
We’re not perfect. Yes – we like our treats! But we strive to eat well. And eating well can be a challenge when your time is limited. Maybe you’re like me and don’t have extra hours on hand to whip up daily banquets – but you don’t want to throw in the towel and feed your family bad-for-you food.
My favorite foods: Healthier grocery store finds, organic, from the garden, and local. And I always have my food budget in mind.
Have you noticed all of my bean recipes? In 2008 I decided to serve more beans to our family. You can read more about our “Bean Challenge”.
