Planning Healthy Meals Your Family Will Eat

14 days down, 52 to go in The 66-Day Experiment to Redeem Time.

This investigation

 

 

is to establish good habits for:

  • eating meals that meet the Recommended Dietary Allowance
  • reading the Bible, and
  • exercising

while regaining some time in the process.

So far, we’ve cleaned out food spaces, made a list of on-hand items, used a MEOW DAILY WORKSHEET new  that incorporates space to meet the goals of this experiment, and worked on adding  a vegetable in every meal .

 

 

 

 

This week’s emphasis will be HEALTHY MEAL PLANNING—what to put in those 4 boxes on the MEOW Worksheet

 

 

 

Over the years I have made lots of healthy meal plans, collected dozens of cookbooks and gathered hundreds of recipes—even edited a couple of cookbooks. The problem: I still had no  consistent plans that met dietary requirements AND that my family would actually eat.

 

 

Then there is the fact that nutrition recommendations have been in constant flux. First came the “Basic Seven,” then the “Basic Four” which changed to the Food Guide Pyramid and now “My Plate”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Successful meal planning was like hitting a brick wall.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But investigation has made a spectacular discovery.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here it is.
