My Week’s Menu – Monday, Feb. 13th – Sunday, Feb.19th
I don’t make everything from scratch but I do like to make as much of our food as possible in my own kitchen. Since store bought bread has 39+ ingredients in it (LITERALLY!), I make our bread. We love our homemade bread and I don’t mind making it at all. I usually make a double or triple batch so I always have a loaf in the freezer. I also make our own pizza crusts which are super simple as well. Another essential is our homemade granola. Everyone loves it! It’s hard to keep enough of it in the house. J
I’ll share my upcoming week’s menu in hopes it will give you some ideas for your own family. Keep in mind that I don’t eat much meat but it’s very easy to add a chicken breast, salmon fillet etc. to meet your family’s tastes. Also, my breakfasts and lunches are ‘kid friendly’ since I eat with our 3 year old and 1 year old grandsons each day. J

Reminder: The ‘rules’ I follow during this 100 day challenge:
1. Eat food that has 5 ingredients or less
2. Eat foods that your great grandmother would recognize as food.
3. Do Not eat food that has an ingredient that a 3rd grader couldn’t pronounce.
Three simple rules but when you follow them it narrows down the list of foods you eat substantially! For those of you taking this challenge with me, Good Luck! J I’m anxious to get your feedback as your journey unfolds.
P.S. My husband had intended to do a 100 day challenge of drinking decaf coffee rather than regular but as of today, I don’t think that’s going to happen. J

Sing in the morning! It’s hard to both sing and maintain a grouchy mood.
