Flavor Inspired Daily Meal PlanJan 03 2012 by Kristy
I love bold flavors so my daily meal plans aren’t your run of the mill PB&J, not that there is anything wrong with peanut butter and jelly. For me the key to staying on a healthy eating course and not getting bored and straying is flavor, flavor, flavor. Find what flavors, spices and textures excite your taste buds and don’t be afraid to use them.
Snack – 1 ounce Spiced Almonds (about 20-25 almonds)
Snack – 1 Lemon Poppy Seed Muffin
Dinner – Fettucine with Pumpkin Cream Sauce, spinach salad or steamed broccoli or other green vegetable of your choice
To involve your family, especially younger children in adjusting to new flavors try having a spice sniff test. Every time I open a spice jar when my grandchildren are around I have them take a sniff. I actually found that Caleb loves oregano by doing this. Then use the spices starting with a little at a time in your recipes and in no time you will be making flavorful delicious dishes that the whole family enjoys.
