Meal Plan (grain free, sugar free, dairy free, gluten free) Sept 7-13

This was week two of my grain free, sugar free diet. Everything is going pretty well, but I will admit that I ate my beloved blue tortilla chips one night. Keeping it real, ya'll. I have also developed a cold thanks to my cute little Rory and I don't know about you but all I want when I'm sick is gluten and grains. sigh. Sunday - We ended up rearranging half the house on Sunday so take out from La Parilla was in order. I ate carne asada with onions and peppers & a side of black beans.

Monday - Chicken casserole (shredded cooked chicken, raw chopped pecans, mushrooms & onions sauted in butter mixed with a few tablespoons of Earth Balance Mayo & topped with raw almond slivers and cooked at 350 for 20 minutes). Served with steamed broccoli (and brown rice cooked in chicken stock for the kids & Scott).

Tuesday - Scott and the girls ate at Chick-fil-a for school spirit night. I ventured into Atlanta for a documentary about burgers. DISCLAIMER: I totally cheated. That burger was tasty.

Wednesday - I cooked some boneless, skinless chicken breasts in white wine with mushrooms. Served with green beans (after cooked, toss in EVOO, salt & pepper and slivered raw almonds). Don't hate... I'm definitely not a food photographer especially on my old iPhone.

Thursday - Turkey burgers sans buns (ground turkey, red onion, garlic powder, sea salt & pepper). Served with slaw (I omitted the corn), steamed broccoli, raspberries (I put chocolate chips in the ones for the kids).

Friday - Leftovers for us; grilled cheese sandwiches for the kids

Saturday - Grilled steak & slaw (see link above--seriously wearing out the slaw!); kids at store bought mac & cheese (real healthy, LOL)

I also made Apple Cinnamon Muffins for breakfast. Sinclair liked them, but picky Rory did not. I'm still learning the ways of cooking with coconut flour but overall these were tasty. So feel free to toss out any advice about baking with coconut flour.

Week three here I come.
