Well, as promised, we have a new way to make your weekly meal planning not only easier but to keep variety in your planning too. Each week each member joining in will contribute one recipe. That’s simple enough, right? It needs to be a high protein recipe that is flavorful, quick to prepare or at least easy to put together (for example for crock pot if it’s not a quick fix recipe). You’ll post your recipe to that week’s Recipe Share by Friday at 7:00 p.m. This will give everyone a pool of recipes to make their weekly menus and grocery lists from and will make it easier to keep variety in their meal planning too. Instead of trying to constantly find new recipes on your own, you’re sharing the task with your support family. That makes it much easier. One recipe is simple! Plus you can share how you and/or your family liked the recipe (if you’ve tested it). For those that don’t want to pick and choose for themselves, I’ll post an Editor’s Choice list each week from the recipes posted as well. So you’ll have two options . . . choosing your own menu or printing the prechosen one. Then all you have to do is print the recipes to go with it.
We’re going to utilize both the Facebook Group and the Message Board. The Message Board is the ideal place for this and I’ll do my best to keep an eye on both and transfer any that don’t get posted both places. This is extra work on my part but I’m trying to make this better and easier for you. This is about you and making your food choices easier. So many have written that this is their downfall. We’re doing our best to help with that problem and take that excuse off the table. This Recipe Share won’t work if you don’t participate or you don’t utilize this. We’re simplifying this as far as we can. The next step is yours. One recipe is something any of us can do. It doesn’t have to be limited to a dinner recipe. It’s your choice. Share the recipe that you want to share.
Here are the links where to post your recipe:
Message Board/Recipe Share: http://www.connectionwls.com/forum/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=63
Each week you’ll see one under that thread for the current week
Facebook Discussion/Recipe Share: http://www.facebook.com/WeightLossSurgeryConnection
If you have questions, post to the thread so everyone else that might have the same questions will have access to the same answers too.
Come on . . join in! We’ve posted some recipes to get the ball rolling and we look forward to seeing and sharing your contributions too. As always, you know we’re always here to help you and you can reach out to us anytime. These sites and groups are about you and for you. We look forward to seeing you there!
