“I feel like it’s mostly my responsibility to get my kids to eat good food. Something as simple as putting the nuts and granola on eye level. It’s the same tactics the grocery store uses. I put crackers and cookies higher up and out of direct eye sight.

I work at home so I put a lot of emphasis on what my family eats. I live in Hoboken but I come into the city a couple of times a week for this farmers market.  It’s supplemental to me, but I focus on getting my fish here and mostly whatever is in season, preferably organic. I have to get creative with my meals since I’m feeding a big family, so a lot of that inspiration comes from Pinterest, blogs, and Instagram. I increasingly use forms of digital recipes because they’re so instant and fast. I’ll always have my tried and true cookbooks on hand though. ‘The Joy of Cooking’ and Mark Bittman’s ‘How To Cook Everything’. Stuff like that is good for your core.”
