It’s that time again! Most grocery stores put out their sales flyers on Wednesday morning, which makes middle-of-the-week meal planning convenient - that way I have 3-4 days to get my (grocery shopping) ducks in a row before the new week. In last week's meal plan post, I shared how much easier Keep Reading
Meal planning is essential around here! I plan out our meals to save on groceries and to make my life as a mom easier! When I plan meals for my family, I know ahead of time what I’m going to make so there aren’t any last-minute missing ingredients! I can also stock up on sale items when I’m at the store, and use the sale items to plan my next set of meals.
If you are looking for meal planning tips or advice, check out all of the Whole30 meal plans I made for our family when we were on the Whole30 diet.
My family eats mainly gluten-free, so I have tons of gluten-free meal plans to share! I also have egg free and dairy free meals for all your food sensitive family members!
My strategy with planning meals is to keep is simple! The easier your meal plan, the easier it is to follow through each week. This is the key to staying on top of dinnertime!
Let’s face it, life is easier when you have a plan. Even when (and it really is when, not if) you get off track, at the very least, a plan gives you guideline, and a helping hand toward getting back on track. As a mom, homeschooling my kids, taking care of the house and small farm, plus running a Keep Reading
What if the holidays didn’t have to be so stressful? Someday, I’d love to do an entire blog series based around that theme, but right now, I want to talk about how to simplify Christmas dinner specific, and really, all holiday meals in general. Simple, of course, doesn’t necessarily mean less Keep Reading
School season is baaaaaack! Whether you’re kids go to school full time, or you’re a homeschooling mom like me, one thing we all have in common is the need for easy school lunches - bonus points if they’re NOT sandwiches. Especially since, if you’re gluten-free, sandwiches are a little more involved Keep Reading
After finishing our Whole30 a few weeks ago, I decided to take a little break from meal planning to evaluate how I could best serve you with them. At the end of December, I sent out a survey to all of you email subscribers (because you’re the ones who come back to read again and again), asking Keep Reading
This week, guys, I failed in a big way. In fact, I almost decided to just not write anything this weekend. Early Sunday morning, I came down with a stomach virus, so not only did I not do any meal prep Sunday afternoon, I didn’t even get any groceries. Boo! On Monday, I was feeling a tiny bit Keep Reading
We made it! All the way through the Whole30. I’m so proud of us LOL! This week we took much different approach than we had in the past, by prepping all of our meals for the whole week on Sunday evening. Meal prepping is something I’ve been wanting to try doing for a while, but you know how it is: Keep Reading
Woohoo! We made it through week 3! I mentioned last week that the kids had been sick at the beginning of the week. The active sickness only lasted one day for each of them, but what I didn’t realize until two days ago, was that their appetites took more than a week to recover. I though the kids had Keep Reading
Week two of the Whole30 is in the bag! Woot! This week, I haven’t been as hungry - it makes me feel like I’m doing something wrong, but more likely, I’m guess that’s a good thing. Neither have the kids, but I chalk that up to them getting the flu at the end of last week and beginning of this week. Keep Reading
Our Whole30 officially started last Sunday - woohoo! They said it would be hard, and that there would be cravings, and to be fair, the kids have asked for either pancakes or mac ’n cheese pretty much every day. But mostly, I just feel hungry. I mean, sure, I scroll through Pinterest now and then Keep Reading
