This is Pat Green also known as Grannie Patty. I am a widow, mother and grandmother. Food and the industry have been important in my life. When my daughter was young, I worked as a Tupperware sales manager. I was introduced to great nutrition by Reliv one of the best companies in the world. For 5 years I demonstrated and sold Saladmaster cookware. I also did cooking classes with members of my church as a small group for at least 3 years.
I love to cook and when I was young we didn’t have fast food restaurants. It was a very special treat to eat out.
I quickly learned that eating at home had so many advantages over eating out. Because my husband was a diabetic it was much easier to control his diet at home.
My message is for new cooks and those who are willing to make changes in their routine. Let’s start with building your pantry. A pantry is a list of food items that you always have on hand. These foods can be stored in cabinets, refrigerator or in the freezer. With a good pantry, you can put dinner on the table without having to make a trip to the market.
I have made a master grocery list that works for me and I will share it with you.Grocery List larger. Once you download, you can edit the list to personalize it. Mine is in a 4″X6″ size and I use blank cards. One other thing I want to share is salt. Day to day I use kosher salt it has less sodium than sea salt or table salt.When cooking I use a product that is even lower in sodium, “Spike” here’s a picture of what you’re looking for I use the red top or box. It’s available in specialty stores and some regular markets. Try it first and if you like it, save the empty bottles and refill using the box. I buy the box for under $6 and it fills 2 & 1/2 bottles. The bottles are $2.80 to $3.50. What I really like about “Spike” is that there is not an aftertaste.
Each week I plan to post at least one recipe and one life lesson. With these survival skills; I want you all to not only survive, but to thrive.
You will hear me say this over and over, Be Nice, Be kind and Be a Blessing to others!
