Keep Things Simple.
Planning meals hasn't gotten any easier, now that there are only 3 (sometimes 4) of us to cook for. As hubby and I hit the middle of our 50's, health concerns continue to become more... concerning. Blood pressure running a little high. Triglycerides borderline high. Allergies. Low Vitamin D. Are we getting enough fiber? Are pesticides poisoning us? Stay away from "artificial", "processed", "high fructose corn syrup", "rbGH" ,"GMO" and "MSG". Is soy good or is it bad? How about gluten?
On top of that, I have a 17 year old, 6' 1" athlete to feed who wants his food quick and tasty and abundant. And a husband who just wants to "take a pill" so he can eat whatever he wants. And a busy schedule that means that I'm often throwing together something quick before I run out the door. We rarely eat together like we did when kids were young. Oy.
I'm trying to amp up the veggies. Less meat. Less starches. Less dairy.
