Gluten-Free Weekly Menu Plan, Week 5

Sharing weekly menu plans can feel a bit vulnerable.  Anyone can look at my plan and find nutrition gaps.  Including me.  There has definitely been some slacking off when it comes to juicing.  Honestly, it's because I didn't want to clean another appliance on a daily basis.  Lameness times 100.  Ugh.  Okay, I'll juice again.

Way more importantly, I've been very much enjoying Health, Home, & Happiness's new ebook, What Can I Eat Now?  30 Days on the GAPS Intro Diet.  It is an extremely holistic introduction to GAPS and for the first time, GAPS didn't seem as scary as it has.  This week, I incorporated Cara's simple and tasty recipes into our planner.  They are amazing as they taste good and are satisfying, but I'm not in the kitchen all the live-long day to make them happen.  More on this ebook tomorrow, when I have the privilege of giving away a copy!  Yahoo!

  1. Holy schmoly, girl! You are HARD core! I love it! Although I would never be able to do what you're doing in my household. I love that you're doing it, and I am one of those lame folks who believes in what you're doing but doesn't have the guts to try it.

  2. I want your raw kefir smoothie recipes, they sound delicious! :)


I value your feedback. Thanks for taking the time to share yours!
