Food for Well-Being Meal Plan

With so many types of dietary needs, priorities and choices there had to be a way to make a bridge across the table and bring people back into one plan.

Food for Well-Being by Teré Foster addresses many dietary hurdles with practical instruction how to live it out in daily life.  Teré produced over 100 corresponding videos and continue to add more as she learns together how to bridge the gap across the dinner table. For customers who want to get started quickly and painlessly, Pre-cooked Food for Well-Being can be ordered already cooked in mason jars or in boiling pouches. This is the perfect solution to bridge the gap as you learn to cook with whole foods or if you don’t have time to learn.

Food for Well-Being is a bridge that made 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 and bread eaters, dieters and big eaters. Teré Foster wrote a cookbook to make it easier to prepare meals for her husband at that time, an athlete, meat-eater from the Mid-West who needed big meals to sustain his active lifestyle. Teré, a light-eater, vegetarian from California who struggled for many years 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 this wise couple didn't want to play the role of the "food police" always saying "no" to any and all junk food.

Husband loves to barbeque, but wife wants to stick to whole foods. Wife eats healthy, but isn’t very organized about having dinner on the table at a certain time. Are they willing to cook whatever it takes to keep their family sitting around the same dinner table?  They don't know how to cook with whole foods. Thus My Whole Foods Kitchen was conceived as a clear-cut plan with recipes and instructions to help make meals made from whole foods that would please the whole family.

With this plan in place, many families 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 they eliminate meat almost entirely from their diets.

Here's how they make the Meal Plan work:
We assigned an ethnic theme to each day of the week; Monday Mediterranean, Tuesday Tandoori, Wednesday Western, etc. We pre-measure whole foods ingredients into bags for each day's theme and put them all in one box. We cook the meals for the week ahead of time including rice, quinoa. lentils and a variety of beans. At meal time these ready to eat whole foods are the "groceries" we use to make meals.

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.

Because healthy cooking was a part of Teré's childhood, her instincts about cooking and planning meals 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.

When you embark on Food for Well-Being whole food menu you will be stepping into a whole new world you didn't know existed. One that is not at all dependent upon a trip to the grocery store. Whole foods store 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.

Speaking about formal nutritional educational programs Teré states that, "Knowing the facts about health and nutrition doesn't mean that nutritionists actually know how to feed a family on a daily basis." 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."

Teré continues, "Established nutritional programs seem to think a cooking class is not a worthy formal subject matter, so students often graduate as a Health Coach or a Nutritionist without a practical, teachable plan for healthy cooking.

Nutritionists often rely on expensive nutritional supplements to meet their dietary needs rather than getting what they need from the foods they eat. This is understandable since cooking meals that provide all of their dietary needs was not part of their education.

Food For Well-Being is focused on getting dietary needs from inexpensive whole foods. They are in pre-measured packages, but are not processed in any way. "We teach how to eat right, instead of taking expensive supplements that try to imitate the real thing,” Tere protests. "Vitamins are just a variation of the pill-popping Western Medicine mentality. It's silly to me to take a pill of turmeric or garlic for example and not enjoy the incredible flavor that turmeric or garlic gives to your meal. The original whole food found in nature is always superior to a pill."

Nutritionists and health coaches embrace this cookbook 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.
