During a recent check-in with a De Las Mías comadre, Laura (not her real name), shared that since getting on the De Las Mías app she has started making healthy changes for her whole family.
One of the steps she took was to swap white flour tortillas for whole-wheat flour tortillas. She was proud of herself, she said, for making healthy changes. She recognized that this new way of life was affecting her whole family. (¡Eso, Comadre!)
She giggled when she told me that her little boy asked, “Mom, why is my tortilla brown?”
Her answer to her jito was that brown tortillas are better for you than white ones.
Laura’s little boy is smart because he knows that sometimes when we do things we have to know why. Knowing why is a good motivator.
