Sometimes a little help is needed preparing meals and being creative nutritiously for yourself and your family.

Search the internet, book stores and your local library.
Get to know the various types of foods available to you, don't be afraid to try new things, excite your taste buds !

I've been going through ALL of my existing cookbooks and giving away those that do not offer nutritional counting at the end of the recipes. I have made it a point to make it a whole family effort in "change". I allowed my husband and kids each 2-3 things I would not take away from them (it had to be reasonable too). I am getting my family to try new recipes and things I find to help them. Snacks and cold lunches have become a MUCH HEALTHIER deal. We go each week swimming (1-2 times) and try to fit in a 6-8 mile bike ride in there. WE LOVE IT!!! My oldest is going to be taking a class at the YMCA t learn how to use the fitness equipment and she's going to try out for cheerleading/other sports in junior high. I am getting my kids more involved with fun activities. These sites are awesome and I am going to continue to all use "Cooking Light" magazines and more to better help with meals.

Good for you to slowly bring around your whole family. This is where it starts, one step at a time.

Being and eating healthy nutritionally starts at home and your plan is proof of that.

These are some great sites. Gotta love my wife - we find out I am diabetic and she goes out and buy a diabetic cook book and changes her life and eating style just so it's easier on me. We share the cooking duties so I will be sure to share these with her. Again thanks for all the help.
