Grain 'n' Sugar Free Menu 3
I found we certainly did get into a rut with the same things every week to eat that sort of meant we were not enjoying our meals and certainly made me feel less than happy with the fact we were in a rut.
A rut can come in any style of eating and we have found it harder since we have moved here and one of our New Year resolutions is to go completely back to this style of eating which is more beneficial to our family.
We have also found more fermented and cultured foods most beneficial, and especially in this Summer heat a Smoothie is a lovely refreshing and yet satisfying meal or drink.
So for this week we made up this menu of which we have some new foods. Breakfast is a most difficult meal not to get into a rut with and still find something little children, babies and older ones all like :)
So for our first Menu for the New Year: ( I shopped and we started from Lunch time Wed)
Lunch: Fruit Salad (Fruit salad was from canned fruit and what ever fresh fruit we had on hand) and Home Made Yogurt
Dinner: Hmm, well we did not go shopping till late so we broke the food rules already cause it was after 7:30pm when we got home so we had Domino's Pizza, shock!!
Autumn made a grain free pizza last week which I will find the recipe for again.
Lunch: salad or left over chicken soup
Dinner: Stir Fry beef with soaked lacto-fermented rice
FRIDAY- is a meat free day for our family
Breakfast: Baked Oats (adjust to family size)
1 Cup of rolled oats
1 t cinnamon
1 T butter
pinch each of nutmeg, cardamom
1/4 t sea salt
2 T maple syrup
1 T dessicated unsweetened coconut
1 large apple, diced
1 c milk or almond milk
2/3 c apple concentrate
2 T chopped nuts (we don't really add nuts)
2 T butter
Soak oats overnight in milk with a tablespoon
of yogurt or 1 t spoon of lemon juice. The
next morning preheat oven to 350. In a large
bowl, combine everything but the pecans.
Using butter, grease a casserole dish and then
dump in oatmeal mixture. Sprinkle pecans over
top. Bake for 30 minutes or until all liquid is
absorbed. Serve with additional milk, cream (my favourite) or
topped with yogurt.
Lunch: Tuna Salad
Dinner: Fish with Italian herbs, lemon juice and fried in butter with home cooked chips
Breakfast: Apple Spice coffee cake
this book in November. We are planning a picnic and this is great with home made lemonade too.
Dinner: Corned beef with mashed potato, sweet potato, carrots, peas and beans
Breakfast: piece of fruit or cup of yogurt before early Mass
Lunch: Bacon, eggs, mushrooms, fried tomato and cheese
Dinner: Minute Steak and salad
Breakfast: Grain free bread with grilled banana (or if we don't manage this bread sour dough)
Lunch: Bacon Salad
Dinner: Baked Chicken with home made seasoning. Potato, sweet potato, pumpkin, carrot, peace, beans broccoli and cauliflower
Breakfast: Buckwheat Pancakes with maple syrup and cream
Lunch: Tomato, cheese mushrooms, eggs
Dinner: Apricot Chicken with soaked Lacto-fermented rice and mixed vegetables
Breakfast: Our Baked apples or this similar recipe
Lunch: Berry Fruit salad, with rock-melon, apple, pineapple, mandarin and oranges
Dinner: Chicken Soup
So that is our family menu for this week.
Blessings to you and your homes,
