Mmmm, is really all I have to say about this week’s grain-free meal plan!
Ok, maybe I’ll say a bit more.
I absolutely love eating grain-free! Each meal is packed with nutrients that normally would not be eaten because bread or grains would fill up the belly instead.
Minimizing sugars, even natural ones is a big part of how I plan meals. What you eat plays such a huge role in how you feel physically. You don’t realize that until you’ve been off certain foods for awhile and try to add them back in. The body is very smart and will react with symptoms ranging from itchy skin, to digestive upset, to redness, to acne, to pain. Learn to listen to your body’s cues.
Now that fall, my second favorite season is in full swing, I’ve got pumpkin on the brain. I’ve got my own pumpkin stew coming later in the week. In the meantime, there are a few delicious and interesting pumpkin recipes on this week’s menu.
As the weather cools down, being in a warm kitchen isn’t so bad. I’ve been counting down the days when I could keep the oven on all day baking yummy food and not care that it makes the room fifteen degrees hotter. I often make breakfast the night before to warm up the house before bed. That and I like to have things ready in the morning to save some time.
