Favorite Things Daily Meal Plan

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens……how could a song about favorite things only include one food reference (crisp apple strudels)? If I were writing a song of my favorite things there would be a lot more food being sung about! With that in mind here is a meal plan of my favorite and most often prepared foods.

Flavor Inspired Daily Meal Plan

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.
