This week’s allergen friendly meal plan is all about focusing on healing foods, stocking the pantry and celebrating a very special first birthday!
I am in a state of denial this week.
My baby is turning one!!
That just can’t be. Wasn’t she just born a few days ago?
This has been a crazy, challenging year to say the least. But our little reminder of God’s grace has brought us such joy. I am excited to celebrate!!
We’ve got lots of appointments and errands this week. And I might actually get to leave the house by myself one evening. It’s been over a year since that happened.
We experimented with a mold free diet last week for my oldest. I don’t think one week can tell us a whole lot. Not to mention I’m still learning about the diet, so I’m sure there was still plenty of bad stuff. I will keep researching and trying to minimize her exposure.
My son has had a rough couple weeks. The only thing I can think of that could be causing the problems is unsoaked grains. We’ve had some cake and crackers (pumpkin grahams and zucchini) that were not soaked. We’ll see if a few days without them clears things up.
I have had a rough couple of weeks as well. Probiotics and problem foods have caused some intense reactions. I’m trying to get my body settled and back on track this week. I haven’t for sure figured out the culprit, but I’m wondering if one thing that bothers me is grapes. I’ll cut those out and start over with my probiotic just taking it once a week instead of daily.
In the kitchen.
Some weeks I don’t have too many kitchen projects planned. This is not one of those weeks. Here is my to-do list so far:
- soaked tortillas
- birthday popsicles
- roast squash
- sd bread
- einkorn scones (trying my einkorn flour for the firs time!)
- pumpkin sourdough granola
- elderberry syrup
- peach cobbler
- pumpkin bread
- baked oatmeal
I hope I can squeeze it all in even with all of our coming and going.
I also shared my recipe for homemade lunch meat. It is perfect for school lunches! And if you’re looking for more great lunch box ideas you can still get the Kitchen Stewardship lunch box e-book 35% off right now.
This week is all about the veggies! I’ve got some great summer vegetable recipes coming.
I had some help planning my menu this week. My four year old gave me lots of suggestions. They included tacos with peas inside and just fresh fruits and vegetables. I used his ideas and tweaked them just a bit to make them into full meals.
Here is our allergen friendly meal plan for the week. Hopefully we can stay on top of a mold free, allergy free rotational diet and have everyone feeling their best. And hopefully we have a great time of celebration!
