For customers who want to get started quickly and painlessly, Pre-cooked Food for Well-Being can be ordered already cooked in mason jars or in boiling pouches. This is the perfect solution to bridge the gap as you learn to cook with whole foods or if you don’t have time to learn.
Teré Foster, a light-eater, vegetarian from California, wrote a cookbook with the help of her husband, Dale Foster, an athlete, meat-eater from the Mid-West who needed big meals to sustain his active lifestyle. This couple struggled for many years and worked together to find a way of eating that would make them both happy. Soon they added two children into the mix and the situation became more complicated. Children often beg for things that are not good for them and this wise couple didn't want to play the role of the "food police" always saying "no" to any and all junk food.
Dale felt stongly about having dinner on the table at a certain time and was willing to do the nightly cooking, but Teré wanted to stick to whole foods, and Dale didn't know how to cook with whole foods. Teré was willing to cook the whole foods such as rice and beans ahead of time so that Dale could just "heat, garnish and serve." Thus Food for Well-Being meal plan was conceived with a clear-cut plan, recipes and instructions. The couple looked for meals made from whole foods that would make the whole family happy as well as provide the nutrition they needed.
With this plan in place, they have been able to enjoy their meals around the table every night of the week. The results have been a sense of "well-being" as Dale has eliminated meat almost entirely from his diet and the boys, now teenagers, are well-educated, healthy eaters.
EAT RIGHT THE EASY WAY
Food for Well-Being is a meal plan, a cookbook, and a product line designed to make it possible for a vegetarian and a meat-eater to survive in the same household. The plan also serves as a bridge between gluten sensitive eaters, bread eaters, dieters and big eaters. With so many types and dietary needs, priorities and choices finding a way to make a bridge across the table is a focus for many families.
Because healthy cooking was a part of her childhood, Teré has instincts about cooking and planning meals that are incredibly simple and powerfully packed with short cuts that make the process of cooking with whole foods easy and sustainable. She eliminates the need to buy foods at the grocery store and can live comfortably without those high-calorie, high-sodium, high-fructose corn syrup, high-cholesterol, processed foods with which Americans fill their shopping carts.
Here's how the Meal Plan works:
Each day of the week is assigned an ethnic theme; Monday Mexican, Tuesday Tandoori, Wednesday Western, etc.
Teré cooks up the meals for the week all at once including rice, lentils and a variety of beans. At meal time or whenever Dale gets the inspiration to cook he uses these ready to eat whole foods as his ingredients to make his meals.
Food for Well-Being Meal Plan can be eaten by vegan, vegetarian and gluten free eaters because every meal includes whole foods plant protein that springs from the ground naturally. Some members of your family may want to include meat, dairy, eggs, fish or sweets but please don’t judge or complain about the choices your loved ones make as long as they eat these whole foods along with it. The nutritional value of Food for Well-Being will improve the health of everyone at the table whether they consider them to be a side dish or the main course.
When you purchase Food for Well-Being you will be stepping into a whole new world of flavors. Teré pre-measured whole foods ingredients into bags for each ethnic theme and put them into variety boxes. Your meals will not require a trip to the grocery store. Food for Well-Being stores well in a cool place for many years, so it is easy to have everything you need on hand simply by having a stack of boxes of Food for Well-Being. Knowing that you have food on hand that you and your loved ones can live on for a year or more brings a stabilizing sense of well-being.
"Knowing the facts about health and nutrition doesn't mean that a person actually knows how to cook." Teré goes on to say "Learning a subject in the classroom and then implementing that subject into daily living are two different things. Our plan gets right down to breakfast, lunch and dinner and even plans for what to do with the leftovers."
"Our plan is based around inexpensive whole foods with pre-measured spice packets.” Tere protests, "It's silly to me to take a pill of turmeric or garlic for your health when you can enjoy the incredible flavor that turmeric or garlic gives to your meals."
Nutritionists and health coaches use this program with great enthusiasm as they see the wisdom of the little things that make this plan so unique and so "do-able" for the average family.
