This week’s real food meal plan and agenda are all about simplicity, birthday celebration and book launch!!!
Is it really March 13? I’m freaking out just a little bit. Tomorrow I have the privilege of sharing our story and sharing my passion with you as I launch my first book called Why Won’t My Child Eat?!
I suppose it’s fitting that my son was up half the night with stomach pain, likely due to an allergic reaction. Add that to losing an hour from the time change. We’re all going to need our Sunday nap today!
I’ll confess that I’m scrambling this week to figure out meal plans as I’ve been busy all weekend hosting family and having an early birthday celebration (for me!). I got all sorts of fun, new kitchen gadgets and photo props. I can’t wait to use it all.
In the kitchen.
I am still trying to play catch up with baking and stocking the pantry with safe foods for my youngest two. As I figure out our new rotation diet (more on that tomorrow!!) I can tailor my baking to it. Here is what is on the agenda so far.
- soaked graham crackers
- soaked teff crackers
- pancakes (to use as bread/buns)
- pumpkin yogurt (recipe coming this week)
- quinoa bars
- tortillas (I can’t wait to try my new tortilla press!)
On the blog.
Tomorrow is the day! Book day birthday. Be on the lookout for a great post about rotation diets and grab your copy of my new book. I’ve also got a couple allergen friendly, kid friendly recipes coming.
On the menu.
As always I’m aiming for simple meals. I’m even serving mostly leftovers for my birthday dinner. Less work is a great gift to myself. Especially after working hard all weekend to prepare big meals.
Here is this week’s real food meal plan. What are you eating this week?
Enjoy your week and don’t forget to come back tomorrow to get your copy of Why Won’t My Child Eat?!
