Meal Plan / Week 29 October 2019

We returned home from our once-in-a-lifetime 10 day vacation to France late in the week. We spent time in Paris and a small town a few hours southeast, walking an average of 9 miles per day. We ate nearly as much as we walked, including baguettes and other foods I […]

 

Savory Paleo Vegetable Quiche

We served this easy quiche for dinner alongside a fresh salad, but you could just as easily serve it for breakfast or lunch. You can change it up by mixing and matching any veggies that you have on hand – asparagus instead of broccoli, for example. We adapted this recipe […]

 

Meal Plan / Week 28 October 2019

Since we’re on vacation, we’re not doing much cooking this week. The meal plan includes a few favorites we prepared before leaving, including an improved recipe for Mango Bread. I’m also excited to include a link to a new General Goodness blog post where I share three great recipes for […]

 

Meal Plan / Week 27 October 2019

I really noticed the changing of seasons this week; not because it got colder (we live in Northern California, after all!) but because it was dark at dinner time. You’ll notice that a few of our meal photo’s don’t look great; I’m not a professional photographer, and while I’ll try […]

 

Meal Plan / Week 26 September 2019

The Whole Life Challenge is back! Or more accurately, we’re participating in the fall WLC for the next six weeks. This week’s meal plan is very Paleo (with one exception at the end of this post), and includes many of our favorites from previous Challenges. Two new recipes that I’m […]

 

Olive-Rosemary Bread (Paleo)

I’ve finally found a recipe for a gluten-free and dairy-free bread that lasts longer than a few days in the refrigerator, toasts really well, and works for both sandwiches (e.g. ham, vegan cheese, and mustard) and breakfast toast with a shmear of vegan cream cheese! I modified the original recipe […]

 

Cinnamon Coffee Cake (Paleo)

Another winning Paleo offering based on a recipe from “The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook” by Elana Amsterdam. For the past few years, I’ve moved away from sweetening my coffee; instead, I sprinkle cinnamon over the top of a steaming mug of black coffee in the morning. Cinnamon has a sweet […]

 

Meal Plan / Week 25 September 2019

I wanted to have fun this week, and also make weeknight dinners as kid-friendly as possible without boring me or my husband. I brainstormed three theme burgers, and I’m really happy with how they were received (e.g. eaten without complaint). It wasn’t all burgers, all the time, though. In between, […]

 

Curried Turkey Burgers

This recipe comes from the original “30 Minute Meals” by Rachael Ray. We adapted to make it low-FODMAP friendly, and we took the theme a step further by creating an Indian-inspired Mango Chutney Salsa to top the burger. This was an easy and delicious burger, perfect for a weekend cookout […]
