Weekly Menu/Planning

For breakfasts we usually do the same things, just rotating what it is based on how we feel that day. Fare usually includes smoothies, probiotic chocolate milks, leftover pancakes, eggs, toast, soaked oatmeal, breakfast cake, and fresh fruit.

For lunch it’s leftovers, veggie sandwiches, sprouted corn cheese quesadillas, fruit and nut butters, soups, and anything else that strikes our fancy.

Snacking we do cocoa squares, or gluten free cookies, fruit, yogurt/kefir smoothies, sourdough rolls/toast, or anything the kids are up to creating themselves. Have a great week!
