I'm sharing this at Monday ManiaReal Food Wednesday, Simple Lives Thursday.


  1. Do you use maple syrup or honey in place of agave nectar for the grain free biscuits? Thanks for another great meal plan!

  2. It's funny, I'm reading this and your husband's song comes on the radio at the same time ;-)

  3. You are so welcome! I actually omitted the sweetener because we topped them with jam. They came out great without it.

  4. Thank you for this! We are starting another school year and I am constantly flying by the seat of my pants so this plan with REAL food is wonderful. We homeschool, which should make meals easier, but I've found it's actually more difficult to get homemaking done because I am so busy monitoring lessons when we are home. Add in two different football practice schedules, two different dance schedules, an active 2 year old and an expectant and tired mama and this fall could be a recipe for disaster without some serious planning.

  5. So glad I found this at Real Food Wednesday! We've been reducing the wheat in our diet, and at least one class in school will be nut-free this year. I'm on the hunt for recipes!

    If you have lunch box recipes to share, I'm doing a lunch box recipe & tip roundup this Thursday on my blog Frugal Local Kitchen ( I'd love to share gluten-free recipes to encourage other parents dealing with nut-free classrooms.


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