Health on the Go
The Editors of Prevention Magazine write, "A national survey ofhealth habits and attitudes, reported in the early 1990s that a record number of Americansare overweight–just about two out of three adults are above the range of weight that’sconsidered ideal for best health. Experts on such trends say we are the fattest people onearth, perhaps the fattest nation in history."
Wow! Not a good heritage for our children.
If today’s families are fatter than ever, they are also busier than ever.Cooking has to strike a happy medium. It must be quick, easy, convenient, low fat, andnutritious.

The base of a healthy diet isfruits, vegetables, grains and legumes.
Start your week with:
Cooked and ready to eat: Rice (preferably brown), Pasta (preferably eggless–Kroger makes it for one source), Mashed potatoes (add soy milk for healthy potatoes and go very easy on the margarine because of that health robber: hydrogenated fat)
Frozen or refrigerated as you prefer: Beans, cooked, with or without seasoning Chopped vegetables such as onions, bell peppers, zucchini, broccoli, carrots, corn, squash, celery, mushrooms, and others your family enjoys.
Fresh, dried, and canned fruit on hand.
We cook ahead for the week. It takesvery little time when you do it all at once. At the end of the week, everything that isleft either goes to the:
Freezer for an eventual vegetable soup or stew (yes, even the potatoes ’cause they are great and nutritious thickeners),
Trash. You will soon learn to adjust for your family’s needs. The soups/stews made from leftovers are great though.
That seems a pretty simplestart for Health on the Go! Certainly demolishes frozen pizza or grilled hamburger pattiesin the health department and pretty much equals that type of food in the conveniencedepartment.
