eating healthy

We've been trying to eat healthier in my house. We always eat so much junk, so thanks to skinnytaste, I've found lots of yummy recipes that I've been trying. I'm still working to find some breakfast variety, but we're getting there. lol
I know I've lost weight recently, which I'm not overly trying to lose weight, just wanting to be healthier.
It's hard to eat healthy w/ a toddler in the house. She sees green in her food and her automatic response is "yuck I can't like it"... lol BUT I did get her to eat brocolli last week! She eats more fruit than veggies, but she's gotten somewhat picky w/ that too. SO we make "milkshakes" like 3-4 times a week. It's kiwi, strawberry and sometimes banana. I add the fruits, low fat yogurt and ice. It's such an amazing snack for us! And we all love it. I was thinking of adding some spinach or something to it to give to my daughter so she gets some veggies. But the milkshake can't be green, so I'm not sure if that'd work. lol

Something that I've started that has taken some stress off me, is planning all my meals for the week ahead of time. I plan my meals and then get my groceries over the weekend. I start the week with fresh fruits/veggies and a full arsenal of foods. I usually end up trying to cook 3 crock pot meals a week, b/c I don't always feel like cooking. lol And I LOVE my crockpot! It's taken a lot of stress off me to do our meals this way. We've been eating out less and eating a lot healthier. Plus I'm enjoying trying out new recipes!
