Here it is only three weeks into the New Year and I’m already behind on my menu planning. I wanted to try harder to come up with healthy choices for family dinners each week. I know a big part of my problem right now is the time factor. If I had more time, it would be more fun to peruse these cookbooks, plan the meals for the week, make the shopping list, and get all the shopping done the same day. (Oh, in a perfect world!)
I really do love browsing through cookbooks and trying to plan more of a variety each week. If I tell HayHay that we’re having turkey meatloaf again, I’m afraid his head might spin! And he’s the easy one to please…
Seriously, though. These are some of my favorite “go to” cookbooks for a wide variety of healthy recipes. When I do take the time to look through any one of these, I always find something pretty easy and healthy. I especially like a recipe that has the nutritional information included, like most of these do.
One thing I always forget about planning for is dessert. (I’ve said before that my guys are deprived of sweets.) If anyone has any easy, healthy, dessert recipes, I’d love to hear from you.
