Over this Christmas break, I gleaned out my recipe box (which had grown into an overwhelming, totally unmanageable, frustrating sized shoebox!)
Out went any recipes that are absolute no-no's for this pre-diabetic.
Out went the recipes only 1-2 of us liked.
Out went the recipes that just couldn't be remade in a healthy way
Out went the recipes we'd never gotten around to trying
Out went 1/2 or more of the recipes! (My garden boxes got some great free mulch!)
Now my recipe box is a manageable size for when I sit down and plan a week's menu and grocery shopping! All I need is my box, my SparkPeople Cookbook, and SparkRecipes.
Whoohooo, I'm a happy camper!
Proverbs 3: 5-8 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones. "
