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.


Breakfast - Broiled Citrus Fruit Cup and 1 Whole Grain English Muffin, toasted and topped with 2 tbsp Spicy Red Lentil Dip on each side

Snack - 1 ounce Spiced Almonds (about 20-25 almonds)

Lunch - Tomato Avocado Salad with Cilantro Lime Dressing

 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.
