Eliminating fibromyalgia trigger foods from your diet and replacing them with fibro-friendly foods, or trying to incorporate more fruit and vegetables into your diet, is challenging. One of the most problematic issues can be when your family doesn't want to eat new or healthier foods, so we have to get creative.
Here are a few fibro mom tricks to sneak some extra vegetables and fruits into your family's meals, so the challenge of changing your diet isn't as difficult for yourself or unpleasant for your family. In addition, you can use these ideas to experiment with reducing or increasing other types of food, for example, less refined sugar or more healthy fats.
1. Start the day with a breakfast smoothie
All you have to do is throw some fruit (fresh or frozen), greek yogurt, or dairy-free milk in a blender. You may also want to add a scoop of protein powder, chia, or hemp seeds in there for extra protein. Just blend for a few seconds, and you have the perfect breakfast ready to go. For children, omit the protein powder and consider using dairy milk or nut milk fortified with vitamins.
