This week’s real food meal plan focuses on simple meals for a lot of coming and going.
The Lord is risen! Christ is risen indeed!!
Happy Easter. I hope you have a blessed day of celebration. We are spending time with extended family.
Only one week until spring break! I’m ready for a break from the usual routine. But before that starts we have to get through a very busy week with doctor appointments, dentist appointments, activities, field trips and errands.

- beef jerky
- gf pizza crackers

Last week I shared the story of how I helped my oldest with mouth breathing. It’s still a work in progress but we have seen a lot of improvement. This week I’ve got a fun, spring recipe coming!
On the menu.
Now for the food. Super simple is the name of the game this week. And doing our best as always to stick to our rotation diet. We tried eggs again for my son but the verdict is still out. So we’ll take them out again and see what happens. My youngest tried sunbutter. I think it’s going well. It was hard to tell because she was also a little sick (again!) this week.
