Real Food Meal Plan | Just Take A Bite

Here we go again. Starting another week with illness. Is it spring yet?

How we’re feeling.

My son has some kind of stomach bug and they always hit him hard. This is the third day in a row of him being up at 4:30 am. I am praying today is the day he really starts to get back on track. His little body needs some nourishment.

My youngest had another food reaction yesterday. It’s been a long time since we’ve had that much crying and sleep trouble.

I’ve got a sore throat. I’m taking lots of camu camu (vitamin C) and elderberry syrup and hoping to kick this quickly.

On top of illness today and tomorrow are the visitation and funeral for my grandfather.

I’m hoping by the end of the week everything and everyone is back to normal.

I’m working on a food experiment with my oldest, seeing how sugar impacts her behavior. We have found for sure that it impedes her sleep.

In the kitchen.

I do hope to spend some time in the kitchen this week. My projects include:

On the blog.

There has been a lot going on here lately. I want to remind you of a couple important things.

  1. Sign up for the Kids Cook Real Food course ends tomorrow! It is seriously so cool. My kids LOVE it. I love how much they want to help in the kitchen.
  2. Today is the last day for the Cheshire Fields hair care bundle giveaway. I’ll be announcing the winner in a couple days. It could be you!

Last week I posted recipes for On The Go Nachos In A Jar and Ten Mason Jar Lunches Kids Can Make. Plus I posted my Simple Cure For Picky Eaters.

I have a fun surprise for you tomorrow morning! Don’t forget to check back.

Meal plan update.

Now on to the food. You’ll notice that I changed my weekly meal plan to a REAL FOOD meal plan. These days people have allergies to just about every kind of food. So there really is no way to make a menu that is “allergen friendly.” I still post meals that are very adaptable and can be made without many common allergens.

Here is our real food meal plan. It is very subject to change this week! What are you eating?
