Kale,Bacon and a portion of guilt.

This morning for mothers day I made a really tasty kale, bacon and poached eggs breakfast for my wife. Fresh eggs and U.K grown fresh in season Kale. At the same time I cooked a standard British breakfast of sausage, bacon and eggs with no sign of any green leafy veg attached for my son. As a parent I want to feed him all the best things but I knew he would appreciate the ordinary fry up better. Even though I know that the Kale is so much better for him I thought it would go to waste on his plate. Such guilt I felt as I lovingly plated the fry up for him. Then I realised, he’s 21! He’s a man that can make his own decisions and take responsibility for himself. Its not that I’ve eaten all the kale, there is loads more in the fridge. So I’ve decided to stop beating myself up about it (guilt is such a useless emotion) and give him the choice. I’ll tell him that there is one of the best leafy greens you can put into your body in the fridge and let him make the decision. Everyone has got to take responsibility for there own lives at some point, you can’t go around blaming your parents for everything. Its his choice…kale or not to kale. I may even show him my picture of my breakfast to help him decide. I feel so much better now, I’m off to play in the garden.
