Now it's my turn to stop by for a visit!
I totally feel you on being careful about what messages you are sending your kids re: food. I have two daughters, and right now they are very supportive of my weight loss efforts, but I really want to make sure that they hear that I am focused on health, not on "being skinny." D11 already has friends who actually scrape the cheese off of pizza "because that's fat!" and then eat the crust. :P . Luckily their school has a "Farm to Fork" curriculum this year where they are reading, among other things, The Omnivores' Dilemna (kids' version) and Chew On This (a kid version of Fast Food Nation), so there's been a lot of talk about where our food comes from, why we eat different kinds of things, etc. Both my girls are very small and lean, as I was growing up, so I'm hopeful to steer their diet to more primal offerings while not ending up with their obsessing over food and body image.
On eating more when we eat breakfast, all I can say is that I really, really like IF'ing and not eating breakfast. Breakfast makes me feel gross and full (even if I don't eat much) long before my system feels like it needs the fuel. I suspect that especially if people eat carby things, the blood sugar spike makes you want more (mid-morning snack, then lunch etc).
Oh, my goodness, what an adorable muddy mess Lily is!!
