Bob's Healthful Kitchen and Pantry: What's In It?
Support your ongoing success!
I'm SO glad that I learned the skills of setting up my environment (home, work, and on-the-go) to support my success, and learning how to fix quick and delicious meals and snacks in the midst of a busy day.
Busy schedules create a need for quick and easy meals. Fatigue, stress, and special events can threaten to overwhelm our intentions about eating sensibly. Planning is the key, but it is easy to forget as pressures mount. A few moments of planning will reduce last-minute stress and confusion and save approximately 15 percent on food costs. I eat all of my meals and snacks for about $8.50/day. Planning ahead does not mean you have to plan every detail. Merely decide when you will plan your meals each week, leaving allowance for changes.
MY ESSENTIAL AWARENESS: IN house, IN sight, IN mind, IN MOUTH! I keep the refrigerator and cupboards stocked with LOTS of healthful foods.
To help me permanently achieve a healthier weight and keep it off, I learned to apply a foundation food plan—one that taught me reasonable portion sizes, and practical ways to apply the plan using delicious recipes.
I was amazed I could eat such yummy food for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks and still achieve a healthier weight. I did not feel deprived and actually enjoyed myself. It was fun to learn about healthful kitchen management skills and ways to set up my environment to support my success.
I planned menus for the first 7 months, and my mother helped me learn how to cook. I am so glad I spent the time learning these skills because this is the eating program I still follow for over 35 years later. If I hadn’t learned about all of these things, I would have gained all of the weight back and my health would have dramatically declined. Many of the tools, tips and ideas that I have learned are shared in the my web site and in the resources that I share.
Below I share pictures of foods that I keep in my kitchen and pantry.
If you came over to my house you would see that I LOVE TO EAT!
I take the Boy Scout motto to heart: Be Prepared!
