This week’s real food meal plan and agenda focus on birthday treats and hosting guests. And the one week countdown until my book launch!
We’re all healthy! I’m not even sure I should say that out loud. It seems too good to be true.
We’ve also got some warm weather on the way this week. It’s like an early birthday present for me.
So hopefully this week we can get a lot done and spend some time outside.
So far my youngest is doing quite well with most of the foods we’ve tried. We’ve added bananas, rice and avocado back into her (my) diet! The white and sweet potatoes did not go well. I think I’ll still stick to root free for now. Next up to try is sunbutter. I’m so excited!!
My son, on the other hand, has not been doing so well with new foods. And it’s back to our guessing game. I’m giving him a few days off rice and then trying it one more time. But I have a feeling it’s back out, which is a big disappointment for all of us. It’s time to get more serious about healing measures for him.
In the kitchen.
I’ve got some delicious work in the kitchen this week as I prepare birthday desserts and create some new recipes. My kitchen projects include:
- strawberry kiwi gummies (new recipe)
- allergy syrup
- pumpkin yogurt (recipe coming soon)
- ice cream
- scones (two varieties)
- cupcakes (two varieties)
