I got a text from my bff yesterday. A very frustrated, irritated text. She’s always had major cholesterol issues, but over the past couple of years they have gotten worse. Her doctor basically told her that she’s a heart attack waiting to happen.
This falls in the NO BUENO category for me! I didn’t watch her kick two breast cancers in the ass to see her die of a heart attack! That just wouldn’t work for me. Because obviously, her health issues are all about me.
She asked me for help with her diet because the thing she has the most trouble with is figuring out what to make for dinner every night. Since I already create a menu every week, I told her that I’d send her a menu each week. I’ll have to adjust hers because I eat red meat a couple times a week and she can’t have any beef. Zero. Zilch. Nada. Just shoot me now!! (said the meat and potatoes gal)
I’ve started a Healthy Meal Plans board on Pintrest so that she has a go-to place to look for ideas. I’ve only got a few breakfast and dinner items on there at the moment. It’ll be a work in progress. The healthy eating thing…it’s a new world for her. And it will be a hard road! Anything that I can do to make her life a little easier, I will do! I sent her the first meal plan, along with a tab for recipes.
Where do you go for meal ideas? Do you have favorite websites full of good, healthy living posts? Do you have a go-to location for awesome recipes? If I’m meal planning for two, I want to have help from many.
