Over on Cage Free Family I have begun a series of posts about food, food costs, and managing increased cost inherent in eating a healing diet.
The series began with my post Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is, where I discuss how meal planning (or a lack there of) can affect not only your budget, but your health and waistline. I also touch on topics of food additives and Fibromyalgia.
Second in the series is Meal Planning Steps 1 & 2, where I go into detail about the process of meal planning, how to make it easier, and how to make it more effective.
Third in the series is Step 3, Making the List, Where I give a step by step instruction on turning your meal plan into a grocery list. There is also help with learning more about where you lose money in the grocery store, how to avoid this, substitutions, and escaping the common shopping mistakes.
I do hope you find this helpful, especially as I move into deeper discussion on the connection between health and the food we eat (or don’t eat!).
Each of these posts takes hours to compile, so bear with me as I sort through available resources to choose those that are most relevant and most helpful.
