September 5th – September 20th
Grocery Weekend once again. I was hoping to make it 3 weeks before I shopped, but that didn’t work out. To align with health goals for the year, you can see I added a few more Gluten Free Recipes. I really wasn’t enjoying the Emeals Menus,especially the Gluten Free. I was excited about the meals. I have received Emeals for years! My subscription there ends in November so I decided to try a new menu service! I became a member at Fresh 20, link at the end of menu. I like this is all fresh ingredients, which is what I want to be feeding my family. I was excited about the new menu options! I have learned that a gluten free diet does not fuel my young soccer player, so I add some items to the meal for him such as dinner rolls, extra servings of the protein. So I will be doubling the recipes, which works well for me taking my lunch to work.
I have been following a new diet, it is the 21-day Tummy Diet. The research suggests some foods can cause a lot of trouble with your digestion and some foods are soothing to your digestion. I am know to have a lot of digestion trouble. I am on the last day of Phase 1. Phase two starts tomorrow, this will be Days 5-15 of the diet. I can now add oat bran and quinoa to my diet, which has mostly been lean protein, good tummy vegetables and fruits. As you can see from the menu below there are days when I am not eating what the family is. But most of the gluten free recipes I can eat!
