Meal Ideas – 8/30/14

Hiya! Won’t call this a meal plan, because it sounds crazy regimented, and my schedule (as of late) has had to have much flexibility.  Add in a couple of CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture – where I get a share of the crop/harvest/butchering that week), and it just HAS to be flexible.  Summer is a bountiful season! But you don’t always know what you’re going to get or what you’re going to find.

As a refresher – the overarching concept is that the foods we choose are processed as little as possible, and that it agrees with our bodies – someone can’t do milk, gluten, etc., so please pay attention to what you can and can’t do! (We also avoid all GMOs.)


Every meal will probably have one from each category –


Summer Vegetable Frittata (will be subbing in traditional tomatoes)

Scrambled Eggs


Homemade Breakfast Sausage (I make a big batch and then just pull it out as I need it!)



Fresh fruit of choice

Topping off eggs – I’ll throw onions, tomatoes, peppers, etc., on the morning eggs


Soaked Biscuits

Toast with this Soaked Bread

Coconut Flour Pancakes

French toast sticks

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

A cleaned up version of Spiced Yogurt Muffins (plan to sub in sprouted wheat, rapadura for sugar, and full fat yogurt. Hoping it works!)


Every meal will probably have one from each category –


Peanut butter jelly sandwiches with this Soaked Bread

Shredded chicken sandwiches with this BBQ sauce and this Soaked Bread

Ham, cheese, tomato wrap with this grain-free version

Scrambled Eggs

Apple with peanut butter slices

Garbage-free, Chic-Fil-A copy cat recipe (I make a bunch and reheat)

Chic-Fil-A Grilled Chicken and Zesty Vinaigrette Salad

ALWAYS leftovers from prior nights’ meals

Fruit/vegetable choice:

Chop Salad


Fresh fruit of choice

Pepper, cucumber or carrot slices with one of these dressings or this dip

Sides (optional):

GMO-free french fries (important because of the oils they use!)

Homemade yogurt with jam and maple syrup

Leftover bread product from breakfast (if there’s not already a carb in the meal)


Main Dish:

Summer Coq au Vin (remember real food conversions! Arrowroot works as a great sub for the often-over-processed and not-so-good for you all-purpose flour)

Steak with this spice rub (I made a batch of it and keep pulling from it – I subbed rapadura for brown sugar and it works well!)

Garbage-free, Chic-Fil-A copy cat recipe, probably with Potato Leek Soup

One pan sausage with rice and peppers

Steak with this spice rub (I made a batch of it and keep pulling from it – I subbed rapadura for brown sugar and it works well!)

Beef Stew

Fried Rice loaded up on chicken and shrimp


Roasted garlic scapes with parmesan

Cabbage Stir-Fry

Roasted carrots

Small chop salad

Onion Peas

Sides (optional):

Bacon wrapped sweet potatoes

Coconut Flour Cheese Biscuits

Tri-Color Sage Potatoes


Homemade beef jerky

Fruit chips – basically, dehydrated fruit – will be trying out some berries and bananas (bananas require a tiny bit of prep before throwing them on the dehydrator – will be trying this method)

Homemade caramel corn (junk free!)

Soaked whole grain crackers

Soaked pumpkin granola (I will be omitting the nuts this time around and adding more oats. Trying to convince my texture-averted kid this is an okay food, then I’ll start working in small amounts of nuts.)

Coconut flour zucchini bread
