For the past few years I have been struggling with anxiety/depression and I have found since following these plans, I feel emotionally stable, I have energy, my memory is working and I am keeping a healthy and stable weight. I am so thankful to God for these plans.
I had always wanted to find recipes such as these but was not quite sure how to go about it. We have always eaten healthily but have always had our treats as well :) And this menu is no different!!! Yay!! Except for one difference....the treats are healthy. And they still taste absolutely delicious!
My kids have found most of these recipes amazing - 99%.....which is fabulous!! As usually I have found either the recipes are too complex/expensive to make or the kids hate them!!! But not with these plans. I find the recipes straight forward and easy to prepare and the kids LOVE 99% of what I make!!! Their first question in the morning is, "What's for breakfast???". No more boxed cereal!!! (except for Josef who has to have his bubbles!!) Breakfast is now an enjoyable meal of the day :) And lunch is no different. I used to find lunch hard - what to make??? But now...we look forward to it. And the dinners are great too!
For the next few weeks as I use these plans to learn about eating real food, I am going to report the kid approved (from my kids :)) recipes. So here we go...... All these recipe links can be found at The Better Mom. The larger items I have linked up to a recipe myself.
