Can healthy eating really be less expensive?
Topic: Healthy Chronicles

Photobucket

I asked that question on a forum that I belong to recently. There were mixed answers. If you've read some of my latest blog posts you'd know that one of my goals this year is to eat healthier. I'm wondering though whether eating healthier is also going to mean a more expensive food budget. Unfortunately, as full-time missionaries we don't have a very big food budget.. So, I've been looking for ways to eat healthy and not break the budget. In my research so far, I've rediscovered gardening, learned about food co-ops, educated myself about CSA's (Community Supported  Agriculture), and found lots of good recipes, but I want to know how you all do it.

  • What are some ways to eat healthy without spending a lot of money?
  • I want my family to eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, but how you do it without ending up in the poor house?
  • I don't mind baking my own bread (yes, I can bake bread as long as the breadmaker), but how do you do buy healthy flour and whole grains without spending a lot of dough (bad joke I know)?
  • And, speaking of fruits and vegetables, I got a juicer for Christmas, which I know is another thing that's going to squeeze me of all my money. (Okay, okay, I'll quit while I'm ahead).

Really though, I'm open for any ideas or hints that you can give me. I'll even share them in a post and give you the credit. Just leave a comment below. Thanks ahead of time.

New Year's Resolutions or New Year's Goals?
Topic: General

Photobucket

A couple of days ago I wrote a post on my New Year's resolutions. One of my readers commented that she doesn't  make new years resolutions she makes New Year's goals. What she does is make monthly goals and then blog about them.. Her readers are her accountability partners.  I kind of like that idea. Since my blog is switching to a new blog platform I've been thinking about making some changes to it anyway.. I'm thinking about setting goals at the beginning of the month and then commenting on my progress on a certain day every week. Maybe on the first Monday of the month I'll set my goals and then on each Monday after that I'll give an update as to how I'm doing.

One of my main goals this year is going to be eating right, exercising, and reducing stress. I hate stress. Unfortunately though,  it's all around us. There's stress and our families. There is stress on our jobs. There is even stress and things of theirs not supposed to be stress in..  Just today I went through a stressful situation that had to do with one of my stress outlets. Last week the stressful situation had to do with ministry.

I think that a healthier lifestyle, along with one of my other New Year's goals, reading the Bible,  will really help me reduce my stress.. I'm looking forward to setting goals,  blogging about, and conversing with you all about ways to eat healthier and lead a healthier lifestyle. Hey,  maybe I'll even start a meme  – I think I fill my creative juices flowing. Who knows what will come of this?  So, what do you think? Should I start a goal setting meme? Or,  does anyone know of  a goal setting meme me that's already in existence?  Let me know which you think. We could be each other's accountability partners!

Let the Countdown Begin!
Topic: General

No, not the New Year's Countdown, the New Blog Countdown.

Oh, I've been blogging on my new Families Again blog - http://familiesagain.blogspot.com/ -  for about a month now, but I've also posted on my old Families Again blog - http://tink38570.angelfire.com/familiesagain/ . Well, come January 1, that will all end. I will officially be a one blog person again. My blogspot blog will be the only blog on which I blog daily. Oh, I'll probably visit my other blog occasionally, but it's really time to say "Goodbye" to it. It has given me many great years of blogging. Really, I will miss it, but it has an outdated platform and Blogspot is up to date and looks really nice.

If you haven't been over to see the new blog yet, please do! Again, the address is -  http://familiesagain.blogspot.com/ . The name is still the same - Families Again, and the content hasn't changed (although I'm sure some of you wish it would!). If you subscribe to my blog using NetworkedBlogs, Google Friend Connect, or somethng else, and you are still getting feeds to the old, green, refrigerator blog, then please let me know and I'll work on the problem right away. If you haven't subscribed to my blog yet, then please do. Just make sure you're on my new blog and then subscribe using one of the methods in the left had column.

And now, let the countdown begin!
