Menu Plan Monday 7/18/11

By Kira On July 18, 2011 No Comments

Happy Monday Everyone!!! I know for most of you Monday is the first day back to work…At our house Monday is day #2 of the weekend so we are enjoying getting some things done and hanging out as a family :-).

As for menu’s last week was AWESOME!! I finally after lots of debating and contemplating the issue (funny how I am always telling my kids the phrase “I Can’t” is not allowed and yet I have spent so many weeks going saying “I Can’t start the Paleo Diet this week because….”) decided to take the plunge and planned a complete week’s worth of meals that consisted of whole foods and were Grain, Sugar and mostly Dairy Free. The week went great! The meals were all tasty, filling, healthy and made me feel good about feeding them to my family :-).  I even bought some Almond flour towards the

Menu Plan Monday 4/7/11

By Kira On March 7, 2011 No Comments

This week I am somewhat cheating on my Menu Planning. I decided to cut back on the amount of grains we are eating in our diet as it seems that has become the base for alot of our meals and I would like to focus more on fruits, vegetables & proteins. With this in mind I have decided to copy a weeks worth of meal ideas from www.wellnessmama.com. Wellness Mama promotes grain free living and while I am not planning on going completely grain free I love the idea of using more veggies in our diet (this is a area I somewhat struggle with as in the past vegetables have been primarily a snack food or maybe a side dish but not an active participant in the main course). I also LOVE the idea of trying new

Menu Plan Monday – 12/6/2010

Wow, I almost forgot it was Monday again! Not sure how that happens so frequently…Thanks Alana for posting your menu plan as it reminded me that I still needed to post mine!

We have a few evening activities this week so we will be taking advantage of the freezer meals I have put away. I am also trying something new this week…typically I do not plan much for weekend meals as we eat left overs or just use items on hand to create meals. This week though I have planned a crock pot meal for Sunday. I will try to prep this on Saturday evening and put it on to cook prior to leaving for Church Sunday morning, this way we will have a hot lunch ready when we arrive home! I am thinking this will make the afternoon go a bit smoother as well as be
