14 days down, 52 to go in The 66-Day Experiment to Redeem Time.
is to establish good habits for:
- eating meals that meet the Recommended Dietary Allowance
- reading the Bible, and
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.
The site I’ve been hoping for.
This week’s challenge
- Make a list of your family’s favorite foods/meals (what they will eat)
- Peruse the Fruits and Veggies More Matters website—especially these pages
- Plan your week’s meals using the MEOW Daily Worksheet. Getting meals figured out should be a great way to Redeem some time!!
