I spent some time looking through my pantry and freezer a few days back. My goal was to revamp our menus to healthier habits but at the same time still use the food we already have in our home. I knew we needed to switch to using whole wheat grains for everything we eat. That would include our pasta, burrito shells, muffins, and more. We need to eat more fresh fruits and veggies, cut out so much dairy, yet get in all the protein we need. Besides all this the meals need to taste good so my husband won’t want to bolt from the dinner table in protest. Is this possible?
I think I came up with a good starting menu for us. The meals that have a page number from them are from the Naturally Healthy Cuisine book by Shonda Parker and Vickilynn Haycraft. I am eating things like blueberries and a walnut mix for snacks, instead of a starch. Oh, I love starch! I have a green drink or a smoothie each day and get in my eight glasses of water. I can already tell a difference in how I feel. It really is a blessing!
