Hello! Thank you for picking up this copy of Eating Healthy with a Limited Budget workbook. My name is Molly Mahon and this workbook is a project for my Honors Nutrition class at Kansas City Kansas Community College. I am studying to be a Registered Nurse and Certified Lactation Consultant. I developed the idea for this workbook because I wanted to teach people with a limited income about how to eat healthy, with fresh ingredients. I also wanted to focus on people with special diets, like diabetes or vegetarianism, breastfeeding mothers, and children. Childhood obesity is on the rise. One out of four 5 year olds is overweight, and 40% of Americans are obese.
Because I am a young mother, a college student, and I work, I find it hard to come home and cook at the end of the day, but even harder to figure out WHAT to eat because the only thing that sounds good is going through the drive through or putting a frozen dinner in the microwave. While all this sounds so easy, (and it is), it is not the right way to receive proper nutrition or provide our families, especially our children, with the nutrition they need. I designed this workbook to be user-friendly. I wanted it to be easy to understand with clear-cut steps and procedures. There are tips and resources, recipes and tons of great information. This isn’t just information I researched, I have tried and tested many of the ideas and recipes in here. A little over a year ago I was researching online about frugal living and meal planning and decided to give it a shot. I tried monthly planning at first, but found that a lot of our food was spoiling and so I started weekly planning. I hope that you find this workbook interesting, educational, and useful for creating low-cost delicious, healthy meals with your family.
THIS WORKBOOK HAS A SPECIAL EMPHASIS ON ORGANIC, FRESH, SEASONAL AND LOCAL FOODS AND HIGHLIGHTS NUTRITION FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH SPECIAL DIETS, CHILDREN, BREASTFEEDING, AND PREGNANT WOMEN.
