Health, Home, and Happiness: Menu Plan 2/1/10

Menu Plan 2/1/10

Share

Menu Plan, again GAPS/SCD friendly with {traditional food grain options for hubby in brackets}  I'm just doing a list of breakfasts, lunches, and dinners without writing out the whole week, because we end up switching them around anyway.  For us, the key to staying on our budget and consistently eat real foods is to have a plan when we grocery shop, buying only what we need, but making sure we have plenty so we're not tempted to run out to the store for junk food.  See more of this in my Grocery Tips post.
Breakfasts
  • Scrambled eggs. I love lots of veggies in my eggs, so do my kids.  My hubby likes lots of garlic, but not a whole lot of veggies. Pictured: Onions cooked in coconut oil, salt, pepper, garlic, and pastured eggs.
  • Squash with beef sausage {soaked wheat toast with butter}
  • Squash pancakes with 24-hour SCD goat milk yogurt (squash pancake directions coming Thurs)
  • Cooked apples and eggs poached in chicken stock
  • Scrambled egg with avocado
  • Macaroons (being honest... ~grin~)
Lunches
I keep lunches simple, and we have the same thing for a couple days in a row usually.

Dinners
  • Casserole with ground beef, green beans, mashed squash
  • Soup {rolls}
  • Meatballs, cooked broccoli with coconut oil and sea salt, 
  • Chicken nuggets (dip cut up chicken in egg, then in coconut flour, let sit a few hours, fry), easy homemade ketchup, cubed squash
  • Scrambled eggs, squash pancakes, yogurt {toast}
  • Hamburgers on mushrooms for us, {whole wheat buns for hubby}, Squash fries
Snacks and extras
  • Soups for snacks
  • Making yogurt
  • Dried fruit is my favorite on-the-run snack, we have apples and pears and pineapple this week. I'm borrowing a friend's dehydrator and it's been running constantly.
  • I got my coconut flakes so I'm making a big batch of macaroons that are SCD/GAPS friendly.
  • I tried The Nourishing Gourmet's Rich Dark Hot Cocoa this weekend (not GAPS friendly, I'm not on GAPS on the weekends right now), really good!  I used the canned coconut milk, and then keep it in a jar in the fridge, adding hot water as needed.
  • I'm making more sauerkraut this week.   
  • I mailed out some Infant Teething Dolls to Down to Earth Toys this past week; go check out her great natural toy selection! I'm going to be starting my Etsy shop back up for Easter time as well.  And I've got a two-part post on being a TV Free Family at Natural Family Crafts this week (Tues and Thurs)
  • This flurry of activity- blogging, crafting, Etsy store... We're aggressively paying off debt with Dave Ramsey. Because we want to own a home with a yard and have a milk goat. It's fun to watch the progress!

We just started Financial Peace University at our church, so right now my husband and I are breathing Dave Ramsey! By the way, I am attempting to make your soaked wheat bread today. I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Hi, I found your blog the other day and have subscribed. I am looking for someone who makes the Waldorf-inspired heavy dolls. I've seen a couple on Etsy, but I really like the look of your teething dolls. I wonder, do you ever do the heavy dolls?

Yes, Dave Ramsey is awesome!

I'm always surprised at how much easier it is to stick with the budget when I menu plan!

And heavy babies, I'm pretty sure Folky Dots on Etsy could do one for you. She does really nice work, tell her Cara sent you and I think she'd be happy to do a custom order :) I did a weighted one for my 3yo, they are nice!
