Meal Plan / Week 10 June 2019

This was a challenging week for our family; our younger son had cochlear implant surgery on Monday; although the surgery went well and he’s recovering nicely, it was tiring and stressful, and it threw our typical weekday schedule off. We created a meal plan that focused on simplicity early in […]


Roasted Trout with Bacon

This may be one of our favorite preparations for trout, ever! Our eight-year-old enjoyed it so much, he was willing to try to cheek meat (which he loved)! We served this alongside our Roasted Cauliflower with Cumin, Chili, and Almonds.  


Roasted Cauliflower with Cumin, Chili, and Almonds

This dressed-up roasted cauliflower side dish is aromatic and tastes sophisticated, but is super-simple to prep. I couldn’t eat more than a bite or two because cauliflower is on my list of low-FODMAP no-go’s, but the rest of our family enjoyed this. Both of our sons ate these veggie’s without […]


Triple Stone Fruit Cobbler

We adapted this vegan and gluten-free recipe from Bakerita. Our version of this classic summer dessert includes lightly sweetened plums, nectarines, and apricots topped with an oatmeal walnut-pecan crumble. You could easily swap in peaches, pluots, or cherries, to create your own version of this triple stone fruit cobbler.  


Vegan Summer Spring Rolls

We adapted this recipe from Alice Hart’s Vegetarian cookbook; she included it in her book with permission of Stephane Reynaud, who is chef-proprietor of a restaurant near Paris, France. This is apparently a well-traveled and well-loved recipe, and we can taste why! Our version pairs creamy vegan feta seasoned with […]


Vegan Posole

Our teenage son made this Vegan Posole for us over the weekend, working from Forks Over Knives’s original recipe. It’s a simple and low maintenance recipe that tastes great on it’s own, but it’s even better when served with sliced avocado, salty tortilla chips, and lime wedges. This recipe makes […]


Whitefish Salad (Dairy-Free)

Years ago, before I was diagnosed with a dairy allergy and transitioned to a low-FODMAP diet free of wheat and garlic (due to IBS), I used to love slathering a toasted garlic bagel with creamy whitefish salad. In recent times, I’ve been craving whitefish salad but I knew I couldn’t […]


S’mores Pizza

Last weekend, my husband asked our boys to take some time and write down 50 things they each wanted to do this summer. Mixed in with the obvious responses such as play a lot of Minecraft, sketch, and play Legos were some crazy ideas like skydive, make a sharknado, and […]


Rainbow Stir-Fry with Chicken and Japanese Rice

Our younger son loves chicken, so we serve it often. To keep from getting bored, we’re always looking for a new preparations and flavor profiles. This quick stir-fry is another easy and healthful recipe from “Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow.” Our version includes bell pepper, broccoli, and bok choy. […]
