It’s been too long without a menu plan! Between that and 3 weeks of passing a cold around, our budget is in seriously sad shape (as are our waists!).
Time to buckle down.
I’m starting a Whole24 today – similar to a Whole30, but only lasting until Thanksgiving. You can find more info on that here. I think The Girl is going to be joining me on that journey, while The Pastor and The Boy go gluten-free . The boy is focusing on eating more “real food” and less…whatever it is that he eats. I’m never really sure.
All I know for sure is that by Wednesday or Thursday, we’re probably going to be really, really cranky!
I’m doing a bit of baking today for those who aren’t going super strict:
- Paleo Pumpkin Pie Muffins
- Energy Bites
- PB2 cranberry cinnamon granola (I need to get this recipe finished up and posted – not paleo, but clean eating and good!)
- and maybe Pumpkin Pucks (a surefire hit with The Boy)
This week’s dinner plan:
Shredded Beef Taco Roast (slow or pressure cooker)
Corn Tortillas (for the gluten-free’ers)
Chicken and Vegetable Lo Mein
White Rice (for the GF’ers)
Slow Cooker Chicken (slow or pressure cooker)
Baked Sweet or Russet Potatoes
Grilled Steaks and Veggies
Sausage Bake (similar to this, with locally made sausage and homemade stock)
Well Fed Chocolate Chili (double batch for leftovers and some to freeze)
Need ideas for dinner? They’ve got them!
