It's been pretty quiet around here as I've been dealing with personal and debilitating health issues. I'm sure as I figure out my path back to wellness, I'll be sharing more about that with you all. For now, I'd like to share that food has been the LAST thing on my mind. I haven't wanted to think about it, eat it, deal with it, or prepare it. I've walked away from the table more times than I can count, because I just couldn't stand to be around food. What helps, though, is knowing that even though Mommy isn't feeling well, Daddy and the babies have really healthy food going into their tummies. At least, that's what I'm telling my kids. Meal planning, again, has saved me and my family from a horrible fate of processed, packaged foods and I will continue to say it: Meal Planning Rocks!
I'm not religious about it. I'm not unwavering. I give in to cravings and I change my mind. But overall, having the ingredients for all the meals for a week at a time, ready to go, is INCREDIBLE! Try it! Let me know what you think!
Monday: Tilapia #9, quinoa and broccoli (I swear Monday is a boring dinner night for us, almost every week!)
Tuesday: Chicken curry with vegetables, served over rice
Wednesday: Meatloaf (using GF oats instead of bread crumbs), potatoes and roasted asparagus
Thursday: Pizza on the BEST Gluten-Free pizza crust! I usually top with spinach and leftover veggies, like broccoli and red onion.
