People assume that they have to have a three course dinner every night. Of course, once you start this, your family will expect it. There are many ways to avoid this and still eat healthfully. One way is to have a meal of what I call “glish”. Prepare small portions of whatever you have in the refrigerator or cupboard. This may be cut-up fruit, cheese, raw vegetables, nuts, cold shrimp or any other type of easy finger food. Your children can help choose what to put on the ‘glish’ menu and even help in its preparation. Another option is to have pancakes or waffles for dinner. We sometimes had this when I was growing up, and it was a real treat because there often wasn’t time to have them in the morning. The ingredients are usually something that everyone has in the house, even when you’re out of almost everything else.
