Most people start a small business by default. Take Jakie for example. She is a mother of 3 kids who is a stay at home mom. She loves to bake cookies. One day she opened her window and there was a fair passing by her house. Someone looked in and asked her how much was for one of those cookies. Now Jakie did not have any intention to sell those cookies. She gave the kid it for free. The the kid went out and shared the cookie with someone else. The came back with five other kids who wanted to try the cookies. This gave Jakie an idea. I can Package these and sell them for $0.99 each. That lead her to start a cookie business from her home. Today she has a book, a infomercial and a website that makes her residual income.

Could you see yourself following in Jakies footsteps sometime in the future?

Get someone you can train to do what you do and double your efforts. Duplication will help you set your business on auto-pilot. Good Luck.

How To Find Healthy Dinner Recipes

When I’m looking for information about something I just type the word or phrase into Google and I can usually find what I’m looking for in the first couple of pages of results. When I typed in “Healthy Dinner Recipes” I was overwhelmed. There were lots of results of course, so I clicked on the first one and got a list of dishes:

Appetizers, Beverages, Breakfast, Candies & Treats, Entrées, Healthy Cookies, Cakes & Bakes ….Wraps, Sandwiches & Burgers.

The word ‘dinner’ doesn’t even appear, and on checking out some of the meals, they didn’t even appear that healthy to me. The next site I tried was actually better, although I had to scan a lot of recipes to find something that appealed to me.

Criteria for a healthy recipe

If you’re like me, time is precious so I have to find what I need fairly quickly. Unfortunately when it comes to finding ideas for healthy dinner recipes you still have to do a lot of looking. I try to scan the recipe and screen out ones that don’t meet my basic criteria for a healthy dinner meal. Here are the things I look for when selecting a suitable dinner recipe:

– a generous portion of mixed vegetables

– a source of protein such as lean meat, fish or beans

– a source of carbohydrates like potatoes or brown rice.

Whole wheat bread, whole grain rice and whole-wheat pasta are healthier choices than the white varieties. A green salad always makes a healthy choice.

If you are a vegetarian it’s much easier to find a healthy recipe. The thing to look for though is an adequate source of protein. Soybeans are a good alternative to meat but should be consumed in moderation. The Harvard School of Public health has a good article on protein on their web page. (http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/nutritionsource/protein.html).

Other Sources

So, where else can you find healthy food recipes? Another good online source is Amazon.com. If you search on the keyword ‘healthy dinner recipes’ you will find a lot of books listed, (of course this isn’t going to help you get dinner ready this evening!). The only thing to be aware of is that a lot of these books are focused around weight loss diets, which are not necessarily good for you in the long run. Nevertheless Amazon is a good source of information.

If you have children it’s especially difficult to find recipes that are nutritious and appeal to them. This problem is worse if you are trying to change the eating habits of the family. The CDC website (http://www.cdc.gov/nccdphp/dnpa/nutrition/nutrition_for_everyone/quick_tips/healthy_children.htm) has some good information about preparing healthy dinners for children.

Conclusion

In conclusion, there is a ton of information out there but trying to zero in on the best healthy dinner recipes for you and your family is going to take time. You also have to be prepared to make a lot of changes until you find something that works for everyone. I used to joke about our kids’ reaction to some of my dishes (Lima bean soup comes to mind) – if they don’t like it, it must be good for you!

Seriously though, there are lots of good healthy dinner recipes available that everyone will love. You just need to be able to spend the time to find them, and experiment a little in the kitchen.

Easy Dinner Recipes to Give Your Family the Meals They Deserve

Easy dinner recipes really are lifesavers! If you are anything like me, after a tough day at work you do not have the energy or the inclination to make something creative. Until about a year ago I had got sick and tired of having to think of something original and exciting for my family to eat. Because I have zero time to think about ingredients, shopping and variety of dishes I became stuck in a rut of making the same few meals week after week.

My family was bored long ago with my cooking and I as much as I hated disappointing them with the same food over and again, I was always too exhausted to do something different. In the end we used to eat out up to 2 times a week spending hundreds of dollars a year on visiting restaurants. Although my family got something they actually enjoyed eating this was costing us way too much. Something had to be done.

Then a lightbulb moment came! A friend of mine had recently bought a book of copycat recipes which solved her what-to-cook? dilemmas. This book contained tens of recipes for the food her family loved to eat in their favourite restaurants.

My family loves the Olive Garden ® and when I tried a couple of the Olive Garden ® recipes out my kids went crazy for them and I was convinced this was the way forward.

Copycat recipes really are easy dinner recipes! Copycat recipes are basically reverse engineered recipes of the dishes you love to eat out. By following these recipes you not only learn how to cook restaurant quality food but you get to recreate some of the nation’s favourite dishes! Think how much your family will love the meals you give them when they are basically the very same dishes they love to eat when they go out. Your easy dinner recipes will mean they have a “treat” meal any night of the week you want.

I now rely on these easy dinner recipes to give my family the food they love and to save hundreds of dollars a year. Read onto the next page to discover how easy dinner recipes can help you give your family the meals they deserve.
