Meal Plan / Week 30 October 2019

This week began and ended with muffins – Pumpkin Spice to kick off the week, and Pear Blackberry to end it! Both were amazing and I strongly recommend you give them a try. We also enjoyed large dinner salads, one vegan and the other topped with poached chicken. I also […]

 

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 […]

 

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 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 […]

 

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, […]

 

Meal Plan / Week 23 September 2019

I think we’re finally settling into a back-to-school routine. Moving into high school has been a transition for all of our, not just for our older son. His days are longer, which means our days are longer, too. Whether intentional or subconscious, we responded by planning savory, comforting, low-maintenance dinners […]

 

Meal Plan / Week 22 August 2019

As I look at this week’s meal plan, it’s obvious that I had Autumn on my mind. It was inevitable, with both of our sons back in school and the sun setting earlier every evening. Our kitchen smelled like a cornucopia of delicious spices like cinnamon, ginger, and cardamom. We […]

 

Meal Plan / Week 21 August 2019

The summer Whole Life Challenge is over! Beginning next week, we’ll likely add beans and white potatoes back into our diet, a bit more corn, and a peek of coconut sugar, honey, or maple syrup. For this week, most of our recipes are Paleo with a few Vegan options. The […]

 

Meal Plan / Week 20 August 2019

This is the last week of the summer Whole Life Challenge! We tried some new things including grilled pineapple, dairy-free Chicken Tikka Masala, raw brussels sprouts salad, and a peach blueberry Paleo crumble. This was also our last week of summer; school starts for both boys and we’re all excited. […]

 

Meal Plan / Week 18 July 2019

We’re halfway through the Summer ’19 Whole Life Challenge! We’re exploring two new Paleo cookbooks that we found at our public library – “Sheet Pan Paleo” by Pamela Ellgen and “Paleo Comfort Foods” by Julie & Charles Mayfield. We’ve had success adapting recipes from both, though I’m currently favoring the […]
