We don’t usually post food photos on the MOPS blog, but rest assured: We have a great breakfast spread at our meetings. Today we tried something new for breakfast, though.
Our speaker today was Deborah Keazer from Root Family Health Coaching. She gave us tips on how to serve our families healthy and frugal meals.
One of her tips was to simplify menu planning by just choosing 4-5 things to make in a week. You don’t have to assign them to a day–just have the ingredients on hand. Some should be easy to prepare and others can be a little more difficult. You just make the more difficult ones when you have time to cook.
Another tip: The frozen tamales at Ozark Natural Foods are healthy and delicious.
For our craft, we assembled boxes of activities that we hope will keep our kids busy on long car trips.
Speaking of things that are long and seem endless, summer is almost here and we’ll miss seeing our MOPS moms! Thankfully, we still have play-dates and Mother’s Nights Out from time to time to tide us over until September.
