Who and Why?!?

I love food! My husband and I both enjoy cooking but don't cook well together. We always have different visions of the meal. We have a little girl who's 3 and a boy who's almost 1. Any meal time can get a bit crazy at our house.
Both of our children have medical conditions, though you wouldn't know it from looking at them. Our daughter had open heart surgery at 18months to correct holes in her heart- they scariest thing I have ever been through! With our son we found out through newborn screening that he has a rare metabolic condition MCAD (Medium Chain Acy-Coenzyme Dehydrogenase Deficiency) FOD Information It's suggested that they both be on a "heart healthy diet" especially our little boy. His diet needs to be kept around 30% fat.
We're taking on his condition and changing our kitchen pantry forever. I'm on a mission to make great low-fat meals that taste good, are easy to make, and the kids will eat!
We are food people!
