I’ve always wanted to post menu plans on my blog, but I’ve never had the guts to do it. I don’t know why, but it’s scary and intidmidating. I usually try to do a rough menu plan each week for our dinners (although I’ve been a terrible slacker in this area lately). But, I’ve never ever planned out breakfasts and lunches. I love reading other people’s menu plans for the week with all their meals and wonder what life would be like if I lived like this. Maybe we’d be healthier and waste less? Or maybe I’d be stressed out with a confined menu every day? Well, I guess I will find out! That’s what these challenges are all about…trying things I’ve always wanted to try.
I’ve tried to come up with healthy, easy meals that follow the Real Food rules. Since I don’t have a huge grocery budget, I will have to make things myself because the organic, all natural versions are so expensive. I plan to make homemade bread, yogurt, tortillas, hummus and a few other things this week. My hope is to do it all in one afternoon and be done! We’ll see how it goes.
Here is the plan (it may change!)
