Fresh Start

We've had our fair share of craziness when it comes to health issues lately. We KNOW that FOOD is MEDICINE but unfortunately, convenience sometimes wins out over what we know.

Then we pay the price for it later.

and for us it's a family affair.

Our daughter has issues with eczema breakouts and the only thing we can narrow in on is gluten being the cause.

Plus gluten and dairy is terrible for my overall health issues.

So, we've planned and committed to going gluten and dairy free (for the most part - our son is a cheese-a-holic and VERY picky, so he will still eat cheese)

I am NOT one of those people who can eat the same thing every single day for every single meal. Nothing makes me want to buck the system more than lack of variety. We're good for repeats for breakfast and lunches but when it comes to dinner, this family has to have VARIETY.

Here's a sneak peek at what our plan looks like for the upcoming week ::

Breakfast - 
Whole30 Breakfast Casserole

Lunch -
Deli meat
Burgers patties
Mason Jar Salads
Fruits & Veggies

Dinner -
Pot Roast
Pork Chops with sautéed mushrooms & broccoli
Taco Salad Bowls
Onion Soup & side salads
Kielbasa Hash
Bunless Burgers & veggies

This isn't hard! It just requires a little extra thought and planning. After we shop, I can make the breakfast casserole ahead and just reheat in the mornings. Same for the burgers!

If you're super busy and you need to prep for the whole week and just re-heat and eat, you can do that too! Here's my tips for that with this meal plan ::

Set aside a couple hours on your off day (probably a Sunday for most people) and after you're done shopping, start COOKING.

Go ahead and cook and prep --

Breakfast Casserole
Burgers, Pork Chops & Chicken
Mason Jar Salads
Pot Roast
Ground Meat for Taco Salad Bowls
Onion Soup

Then when you're ready to eat, you can just quickly chop your veggies and saute them in olive oil and seasonings to keep things fresh and not soggy.

I hope these tips help you for your meal prep and planning even when you're working with limited time and restrictive diets!
