It is with great pleasure and excitement I am going to give this challenge 100%. The fact that we are raising money and awareness for the Edmonton food bank is great. I never have really followed the Canadian food guide and thanks to reading and Jeff I am learning quite a bit about basically how to portion food. Good Luck Tracy and Jeff.
I think a bit of a challenge will be fulfilling the dairy category as I am allergic to dairy and I honestly don't eat or drink soy/rice/almond beverages, "cheese" yogurt ect... and comparatively soy products are quite a bit more expensive and some brands are just plain gross......... and expensive to experiment with. But I will put my best foot forward and attempt to fulfill my 2 milk and alternative category daily :-) you may ask how does one get their calcium? veggies, beans salmon, almonds, rice, nuts ect...
I will be clipping coupons and getting them online in the very very near future.
Breakfast snack: 1 serving of rice, 1/2 serving of beans
Lunch: 2 servings of mixed veggies, 1/2 serving chicken
