Dietitians of Canada staff at EatRight Ontario have launched My Menu Planner! Check out this new tool at http://www.eatrightontario.ca/en/MenuPlanner.aspx. This interactive menu planning tool will provide you with menu planning help and easy-to-use meal plans.
Each menu plan has been designed by Registered Dietitians to meet the recommendations in Canada’s Food Guide. You can personalize the menus for your own individual healthy eating goals by choosing your menu and favourite meals, snacks and beverages. Once you’re finished with your menu you can print out a shopping list and recipes. Here are the menus that you will find at My Menu Planner:
X Smart Eating for Everyday Meals (a great place to start for general healthy eating tips) X Healthy Weight Healthy You (if you’re looking to lose weight) X Eat Right for less X Eat Right the Vegetarian Way X Eating for an Active Lifestyle (if you’re regularly active for more than 60 minutes/day) X Cooking for One or Two Made Easy X On-the-go and Eating Right
