Lately, the majority of the questions I get are about what we eat. I’ve always been hesitant to post too much about this because, honestly, I didn’t think anyone would find it all that interesting. Rather than continue to limit this discussion to personal emails I thought I’d give it a try as a regular topic on the blog.
These posts won’t go into detail about why we choose the items on our menu (a topic I do blog about a lot). This is simply a detailed menu for the day. In the interest of setting expectations, I’ll reiterate that I’m not a “cook.” Everything I make is pretty basic, very fast and requires a limited number of ingredients. I would really appreciate any feedback on the relevance of these posts or how to make them more useful for you as readers. If you have healthy meals or menu plans please leave a comment and a link.
Breakfast – We were going for quick and easy before heading out the door for Bam-Bam’s well check up. (Strong, healthy, and “quite the little talker” in case you were wondering about the check up.)
- banana slices with sunbutter
- whole wheat toast (Arnold’s bread) with pastured butter and cinnamon
- strawberries and cantaloupe
Cowboy Lunch – Today’s lunch was inspired by the boy’s sudden interest in cowboy’s. They were asking all kinds of questions about how cowboy’s lived so I took advantage of the opportunity and tried to make a themed lunch. We had…
- organic, nitrate free, grass-fed beef dogs from Applegate Farms
- baked beans with real grade B maple syrup
- fruit salad (cantaloupe, purple grapes, strawberries)
Dinner - I’m going to see Dr. Phillips speak on wellness tonight so the boys are really on their own. The house is stocked with lots of healthy choices so we’ll see what my husband puts together. I suggested Ian’s chicken nuggets, cucumber slices and fruit. I did make a pot of vegetable soup (the super easy way) before I left and ate that with carrot sticks and red pepper hummus.
- 1 box organic free-range chicken broth
- 1 bag of mixed veggies with broccoli, squash, carrots, cauliflower
- coconut oil
- sea salt and cracked black pepper to taste
