Why is it that planning healthy meals is such a hard task?
In my head it is simple enough: protein, veggies, possible starch and maybe fruit (for something sweet).
But, figuring out elements from each of these groups that coherently make a meal AND all of my crew will eat is not so easy.
Part of the problem is my kids think if they tell me they don’t like something, I will let them have something else (such as pb&j’s or cereal).
To combat this, I have decided to no longer allow this practise. My goal from now on will be to make meals that consists of:
1 starch (sometimes, but not always a must)
My hope is to expand their pallets, not that they are that picky.
Anyways, just some thoughts that I have been having about meal planning.
The winner for the first ever FindingChristi giveaway, Danielle, did step forward in a timely manner.
Of course, in true FindingChristi fashion, I am having a few issues with my iTunes account. These issues are supposed to be worked out by this evening, and hopefully I can get Danielle’s e-certificate off to her.
If not and these issues persist, I will be snail mailing Danielle an actual gift card to iTunes.
I had such a good time with the giveaway and I look forward to the next one!
I am hoping to incorporate a “Winners” page to my blog. On this page I hope to include a picture of the winner and contest description, along with a brief bio of the winners. Just something that I thought would be fun to do!
Well, back to healthy meal planning…
Do you have any suggestions on how to make this easier?
Do you have a few meals in your arsenal that you rotate around or are you constantly trying and making new things?
