We are here on DAY FOURTEEN of our No Excuses November wellness challenge and we hope all is going well for you this week. As you strive to maintain your Water intake, fresh outdoor Air exposure, Exercise, and Rest, we thought we'd share with you one of the most helpful methods we have found for keeping up with a wellness program. What is it? Since our wellness is largely related to the foods we consume, we have adopted the use of a foodie folder. A foodie folder is a organizational folder used to store your favorite new recipes. When we first began putting serious efforts into our wellness journey nearly 20 years ago, we found that having healthy recipes on hand made living healthfully day-by-day significantly easier for us, and we know it can do the same for you!
Learning to cook more healthfully isn't always something that comes naturally to everyone. Our German heritage laid a foundation of cooking which involved significant amounts of high cholesterol, high fat, high sugar foods, and we knew that we needed to sort through family favorites and make changes, or replacements wherever we could. If you are serious about your wellness journey, it may be time for you to do the same.
We recommend using a three-ring binder with a plastic page sleeve on front and back covers. In addition, we have found that utilizing plastic page protectors not only prevents spills and splatters from damaging your treasure trove of recipes, but it also ensures you are able to make copies of a clean recipe page for friends and family when they ask. You may choose to organize your gathered recipes however you like. We have chosen to group into the following categories: Beverages; Dips, Spreads and Sauces; Entrees; Breads and Sides; Desserts; Personal Care (this is a great place to store home remedy or personal care recipes); and Fun (play dough recipes for the little ones, et cetera). Whichever categories you choose, we definitely suggest you organize because as your collection grows, you will ensure it is easily to find the recipe you are looking for. The front and back cover serve well as a quick access storage location for a recipe you wish to try soon, or as a photo collage space for your foodie adventures.
We hope you enjoy collecting new healthful recipes for your foodie folder. Be sure to share your favorites with your family and friends!
