Menu Plan Monday, May 29th!

Standard

I’m getting more excited about food again as I transition to some grain free goodness. It’s been a funny cycle this past week–I’ve done my best (not perfect, but good!) to eat less sugar, drink water, exercise (walking about 45 minutes a day), and go to bed on time. Because I’m exercising I’m sleeping better and therefore have more energy throughout the day. Since I’m making sure I eat better (just paying better attention overall) then I have more energy to get through the day and exercise–and the cycle has really been almost the same every day!

First grain free bread!

Check out this grain free bread I made last week! It was pretty easy–all in the blender. Once I got in the middle of the loaf I was a little concerned because it was a bit mushy, but I found out by visiting the blog that there was a misprint in the cookbook and there was too much liquid. So, I can share the recipe with you! It’s from “Celebrations” by Danielle Walker. It’s her third book and there are some amazing recipes in it! Here’s the Blender Bread Recipe.

Breakfasts:
Grain Free Bread, eggs
Cupid Pancakes from Celebrations Cookbook (she has other grain free pancake recipes on her blog that I would like to try if you don’t have the book!)
Creamy Chocolate Avocado Smoothie

Lunches:
Panera Bread Broccoli Cheddar CopyCat Soup
Leftovers including shrimp fried rice with cauliflower rice

Dinners:
Chef Salad with ham–maybe I will attempt croutons with my grain free bread!
Breakfast for dinner–I’m not sure what this will look like exactly yet, but its an easy quick dinner!
Ham, noodles, peas with cheese sauce–I’m totally going to make this up as I go along. My daughter requested something with long noodles and this was my idea to comply with her request.
BLTs–Bacon, lettuce and tomato on grain free bread for me! I might add avocado with this too. This is an amazing hot weather meal.
Pizza–If I can get motivated to make crust. It’s been awhile since I’ve felt like it, but maybe this week will be different. Maybe I will try this crust in spite of the fact that I don’t have a food processor.
