The Waltons Experiment Wrap Up

Monday, April 6, 2015

A few months ago our family did The Waltons Experiment. Great things came out of our experience. We ate out less and when we did, I constantly tried to think about how to make the same recipe at home. We did and I have to admit it tasted better. I tried a few new recipes but mostly brought out some old recipes that the whole family enjoys. 
Some of our go-to meals were:
Brazilian Rice and Black Beans
Baked Turkey Meatballs
Organic Oat Bran Banana Muffins
Breakfast Casserole

I often realize that it is a lot of work to eat mostly homemade meals but the pay off is fantastic. With that in mind I cooked vegetable soup this morning and I got started on dinner which will probably be Brazilian rice, beans, Baked chicken and veggies. The greatest investment I make in my health comes from the food I choose to eat. The Waltons Experiment taught me that cooking most of my meals at home can be done and it is worth doing it.
My next "food" experiment is to journal my food for 100 days. It'll be a type of "Food Journaling Streak." So far day 2 is going well!
Have you challenged yourself to eat more homemade meals? What did you learn?
