Teré Foster, a light-eater, vegetarian from California, wrote a cookbook for her former 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 they didn't want to play the role of the "food police" always saying "no" to any and all junk food. So they came up with a strategy that worked for all of them.
Dale felt strongly about having dinner on the table at a certain time and he was willing to do the nightly cooking. Teré wanted to stick to whole foods that Dale didn't know how to cook. Teré was willing to cook all of the whole foods such as rice and beans ahead of time, but didn't want to cook every night. So Teré came up with a plan to "can" her own whole foods from scratch to have them ready for Dale to use. Whole foods take a long time to cook and she didn't have time to spend hours in the kitchen every night, so she made enough for the week all on one day. Then all Dale had to do at dinner time was "heat and serve." Thus the Food for Well-Being meal plan was conceived.
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 OVERNIGHT
Food for Well-Being is a meal plan, a cookbook, and a product line. It is 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.
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.
