You Guys thanks for the help. But I was kind of looking for a sample menu/plan.

1. I am thankful for my Mom, friend and brother-in-law all showing up over the course of Thursday! It reminded me that what I really need and honestly ask for (even if it is just during meditation and my journal) it will miraculously show up in spades .. if I let it!!!!
2. I am thankful for getting better at noticing good and great things in and around my life.
3. I am thankful for getting better at letting good and great things happen in and around my life.
4. I am thankful to be loved and cared for more than I could ever know. I believe it makes me work at being a better person.
5. I am thankful for Annabelle Kaukinen and Team Larry Carlson having helped me to obtain and create the supports I needed to be successful(ler) in life. The positive ripple effect they have created even in only my life blows my mind .. and they have worked with thousands! Wow. Seriously WOW.
6. I am thankful for good health. I am healthier now than I recall being 20 years ago!
7. I am thankful for all transplant donors and their families everywhere. So thankful it makes me cry every time I think of it.
8. I am thankful for the great books and documentary films that RPL and The Internet help me find.
9. I am thankful for recognising where I Get In My Own Way (GIMOW) so that I can Get Out Of My Own Way (GOOMOW)! 🙂 Thanks for the acronyms Paulette! 🙂
10. I am thankful for my Mom’s thoughtfulness, generosity and sense of humour.
11. I am thankful for catching that guy totally checking out my MOM in the store because it confirms what I suspected about her and he was checking out my MOM (tsk tsk, inappropriate)! So yeah, even in her 60’s, my Mom still has it! 🙂 tee hee!
12. I am thankful for Ryan Higa’s videos because they indulge my inner child, don’t use gratuitous cursing, are respectful but still get the point across and always say TEE HEE at the end! 🙂
13. I am thankful for Alex for instilling the word “Delightful” in me. I took a couple of university classes with her – she’s a good kid that one! 🙂
14. I am thankful for usually “Plating” my food before I eat.
15. I am thankful for being awesomely creative and skilled with renew-ifying leftovers.
16. I am thankful that things change and that dreams, wishes and hopes do come true!
17. I am thankful for developing new habits and in effect pushing old, no longer useful habits out.
18. I am thankful that I am moving to a nicer, quieter new home that is better suited to my needs. (At some point. 🙂
19. I am thankful for fresh clean air! I am also thankful for choosing to frame things in a positive manner. 🙂
20. I am thankful for P’s slow cooker chicken chili and that it was ready for us after doing some physical work!
21. I am very thankful for learning tasty new ways to prepare legumes!
22. I am thankful for hearing more about people that are happy, healthy and prosperous doing great work that they enjoy!
23. I am thankful for writing a Thank You letter to someone in my journal today. Writing letters in my journal are always a great forward step in making something important to me come to fruition. Hooray! 🙂
24. I am thankful for making myself write a Gratitude list out properly last night before I went to bed – even if it was nearly 2am before I got to bed. Writing the list before bed is even more effective at helping me wake up rested and in a good mood. Only saying the list aloud and in my head as I ready myself for bed isn’t quite as good.
25. I am thankful for choosing to see my cul-de-sac relationships differently. Seeing them as what I needed or where I was at the time and being okay with that has caused many of them to pleasantly vanish from my life. It is the old, “as I know better, I do better”, in my opinion.
26. I am thankful for living in a place where I can get good, safewater from the tap any time of the day or night.
27. I am thankful for the guy on Flickr that kindly taught me years ago how to make links open up in new tabs or windows.
28. I am very thankful for authors and publishers that offer books in electronic format so I can easily select and speak the words on my computer.
29. I am thankful for getting better at letting things be what they need/want to be with other’s stuff. I am recognizing that there are people that enjoy talking about doing stuff and there are people that enjoy doing stuff .. and that is okay. I am both of those people. I am working toward being the just doing stuff kind of person more often. Listening to myself blather on about stuff I “want to” do or “wish I could” do has become #$% annoying! My soap box feels a little high and dilapidated these days. I also noticed that the things that seem to get under my skin most are also the things I most need to work on changing in myself. Namely how I have so much going for me and could do any number of really simple things to honour those gifts – recognising this has felt extremely humbling.
30. I am thankful for meeting and learning from the people I have had the opportunity to interact with this week. The photo above was taken one of Regina’s many beautifully groomed and well used parks. It was also taken shortly before taking the opportunity to meet and learn from a lovely and interesting woman that lives near the park. It has been a busy but good week! 🙂
31. Thank you for reading – make your week great like you know you can! 🙂
Question by SCC: If you could come up with a menu for healthy fast foods?
Let’s pretend you get to design the menu for a new fast food restaurant. In other words, foods that you could get through a drive through and eat in a car.
What are some good ideas for fast foods that would be healthy and taste good? Menu ideas that could be either low sugar, low carbohydrate, low fat, low calorie, etc.
If there was a restaurant like this, what would you want to eat there?
Answer by myndi h I’ve outlined a simple one-day meal plan using some of the popular fast-food chains. The total daily calories are just under 2,000.
Au Bon Pain Oatmeal with Raisins
Milk 1-percent fat
Total Calories: 362
McDonald’s Fruit and Yogurt Parfait
Total Calories: 160
Subway 6” Turkey Breast Sub with Mustard
Water or diet soda
Total Calories: 254
Taco Bell Cinnamon Twists (2 servings)
Total Calories: 320
Wendy’s Junior Hamburger
Side Salad with Fat Free Dressing
Water or Diet Soda
Total Calories: 305
Burger King Small Strawberry Milk Shake
Total Calories: 410
When planning meals, set calories at 2,000 for women and 2,400 for men. Don’t forget to get some daily exercise, as balance and moderation is the key to a healthy lifestyle.
Question by DreamLoveBelieve: How come I can’t find any books on healthy living other than the one on medical problems?
I have been looking for books about healthy living. I’m trying to find ones that give testament to an organic lifestyle. One that includes no processed foods, sugars, and other things that are bad for you. All I can find are books for eating healthy to cure diseases. I don’t currently have cancer or another disease, I just want to transition to a healthier lifestyle.
Does anyone know of any books like this. I would really appreciate it.
