Make meal items the first priority: fruits, vegetables, greens, whole grains (brown rice, oatmeal (not the instant stuff), whole grain breads and pastas), dried beans (black, pinto, navy), meats (fish, chicken), dairy (low fat milk, yogurt and cheese). Remember that plant based proteins cost much less money than meat, and they contain no cholesterol and will not contribute to heart and vascular disease. If you have money left over from your weekly budget, then you can buy your empty calorie items if you choose. Once you buy your nutrient-rich foods for the week, you can take a few hours to prepare the vegetable and grains and even the meats.

Camp by Debra Burdick, Washington County Extension Office The 53rd annual Natural Resources Camp may have found a formula to make five nights of camp- ing in Idaho's scenic Sawtooth Mountains with plenty of fun activities and scientific explorations even more fun: add an afternoons swim at Easl@ Hot Springs. The camp is held June 25 to June 30 at the Central Idaho 4-H Camp east of Ketchum. Boys and girls sleep in log bunkhouses and take field trips in the area to learn about Idaho's natural resources. Sponsored by University of Idaho Extension and the Idaho Association of Soil con- servation Districts, the camp allows campers ages 12 to 14 to learn about natural resources from wildlife and rangeland to forests, vater and soil.

Activities include hiking, fishing, volleyball, fire- arms safety and target shooting and other camp activities. The trip to swim at nearby Easley Hot Springs, which is part of the Cathedral Pines Camp, is a new addition that Camp Director Amber Moore expects to be popular. "We decided to add it as a little reward for camp- ers at the end of the week;' said Moore, a University of Idaho Extension soils specialist at Twin Falls. The camp typically attracts about 70 boys and girls, Moore said, although it can take as many as 90. The goal of the camp is to give campers basic facts about Idaho's natural resources and to encour- age them to think about whether Idaho will still have them in abundance in 20 years.
