Family Meal Planning
Eating Well for Wellness

In most cases it takes forever to get a man to go to the doctor. However, pain in the chest, funny looking moles and extreme tiredness are reasons for concern. Men generally die younger than women. In the early 1900s, women only lived about a year longer than men. Now the gap has widened. This is alarming to female family meal planners. Since changing food habits may be all that is necessary in addition to simple medical attention. The biggest killers of men are heart disease, stroke, suicide, prostrate cancer and lung cancer. Men, as well as women, need to examine their daily routine and their eating habits. The meal planner should prepare heart-healthy meals in relationship to the foods enjoyed. Men should exercise regularly and be an example to the family. Play an active sport with the family before the evening meal. Swimming, bike riding, baseball and soccer are very active family sports. If the man is physically challenged, do some other activity with the family. Deep-breathing exercises can be done with all the family. Remember that the family that prays together stays together. The man of the household should be an example to the family in his Spiritual faith. Christians should attend church as a family unit. They should pray for needs of the family, friends and current events. Bible reading with the family is always a favorite pastime before closing the evening. Meal planners should be watchful about the mental, spiritual and physical wellness of the man of honor in the family. Nutritious and wholesome foods will help to keep the man in your life fit.
From the beginning of Bible times, figs have been a part of the diet. Figs are abundant in the markets in the summer. They may be eaten raw, preserved, frozen or dried. Figs have often been associated with aphrodisiac foods. They provide a wholesome and nutritious dessert to any menu. They contain calcium, phosphorous and Vitamin A. Fig bars have been America’s favorite for a long time. Homemade fig bars are better for special-needs dieters and diabetics because the sugar and salt contents can be controlled. Another favorite dish is fig bread or raw figs dipped in honey.

From the Nutritionist: This menu is a summer delight. Grill the meat to desired doneness. Make a light mushroom gravy and serve separately for the guest who prefers. Blanch the asparagus or green beans and bundle with pimento strips. May top with a pimento heart-shape and secure with a toothpick. Grill to desired doneness. Fill tomatoes with favorite dressing or stuffing. Grill until done. Be sure all the ingredients inside have reached the done temperature on a meat thermometer. Make favorite recipe of roll dough. Place in a heart-shaped pan and bake. Turn out and brush with honey butter. Make plenty of fig bars ahead of time. Store in airtight containers and send leftover bars to a shut-in friend or neighbor in a colorful gift food basket. Make your own favorite recipe of Blissful Tea for the beverage. The family meal planner will find this menu colorful and nutritious. The pork chop provides protein; mushrooms, asparagus or green beans, pimento peppers strips and figs provide vital vitamins and minerals. If a type of bread dressing is used in the tomato, it serves as one bread exchange. An additional serving of bread is provided from the heart-shaped bread. Serve the meal outside, if weather permits.
