Eating Healthy During The Week: Meal Planning

As a busy mom of two, I find meal planning every week an absolutely critical habit to maintain healthy eating.  If you have no plan during the week, and you are busy, something comes up, or you are just tired, what is the first thing you are going to do?  Turn to an unhealthy frozen […]

Clean Out The Pantry and Mindful Shopping

Welcome to the first of my healthy habits resets!  I hope you are as excited about doing this as I am about sharing with you.  🙂  Anytime I feel like my diet has gotten off track, one of my first steps to getting back on track is to clean out my pantry, refrigerator, and freezer. […]

Healthy School Lunch Ideas

Jacob is starting Kindergarten this week, and because he has food allergies we have to figure out lunches and also snacks to bring him.  I realized this morning I should probably do some brainstorming on what we can bring him!  We are going to go together this afternoon and make sure he has something he […]

Jacob’s Blueberry Peach Smoothie Recipe

This morning Jacob wanted a snack, and decided on a smoothie.  He ran the show with this smoothie, stood up on a step stool, and told me what to get out of the refrigerator.  He poured, and measured, and came up with a delicious recipe.  I have to say, this is one of the tastiest […]

Gluten-Free Meal Plan 5/19/2013

I’ve finally gotten around to posting another weekly meal plan.  This week, Jeremy is out of town Monday-Wednesday, so I tried to plan some easier meals for these days, since I will have my hands full.  We also haven’t been eating much meat left, but have some grass-fed beef in the freezer so I planned […]

Gluten Free Meal Plan 4/13/2013

I’ve been getting over a nasty virus that turned into an infection and have been sleeping a LOT this weekend.  Sometimes, as a parent, getting enough rest is difficult,  so I’ve tried to keep things easy this week, rely on Jeremy to help me make some food tomorrow, and also try to keep things healthy […]

Gluten Free Meal Plan 3/23/2013

Sorry for my lack of a meal plan last week!  My parents were in town and I had the luxury of going to the grocery store pretty much every day so I just planned as I went.  Jeremy planned for me again this week.  My 2-year-old and I both came down with something this morning […]

Gluten Free Meal Plan 3/10/2013

Happy Sunday!   Here’s our meal plan for the week.  Jeremy planned this week while I was studying for my killer Anatomy and Physiology test.   Yesterday we ended up heating up some frozen brisket taco meat for dinner because we were busy.   Monday night I take my son to gymnastics so we are […]

Gluten Free Meal Plan 3/1/2013

We had a busy week this week, and I can’t believe I’m already planning for next week’s meals.       Saturday Lunch: Leftovers from last week Dinner: Paella with mussels  Jeremy has been craving paella so I tried to work that into our menu, but it takes a while to cook… definitely a weekend […]

Caesar Vinaigrette

We had a Caesar salad for dinner tonight, with toasted garlic bread in place of croutons and some sauteed mushrooms on the side, just because I needed to use them up.  I make our Caesar vinaigrette and it’s egg and gluten free!  It does have anchovies in it, which real Caesar does, but don’t be […]
