What makes a Good Meal

  • Staying Power (Fat, Protein, Fiber)  & Veggie and Fruit. 
  • Always make sure there is something familiar you know that they like and that you want them to eat.
  • The food we're still learning to like-- not foods we don't like. 

How to Cut Costs:

  • Look for the product that is in season in the area where you are.  Froze and Canned vegetables are processed at peak nutrition. 
  • Pay attention to meat cuts and prices.  Get familiar with chicken thighs
  • Meatless meals that focus on eggs and milk
  • Notice and be aware of portion sizes

How Heather Plans:

  • She plans five days, not 7.
  • They have a Taco Tuesday every week.
  • Look at your calendar and figure out how much time you have to make food.
