We try to eat Real Foods. What does this mean to us? Our foods should be whole, unprocessed and nutrient dense. We still have alot of room for improvement before we are eating an optimum real food diet but we believe by making changes slowly over time that we will have better results with sustaining our new way of eating. Plus it helps our budget and keeps my head from exploding!
I actually stuck to my dinner menu very good last week except for Friday night. I had forgotten that we were having Game Night with people from our church (meeting at our Pastors house). So we had a quick dinner (Homemade chicken patties and leftover rice) and then enjoyed the snacks that everyone bought for game night. I made Sourdough Crackers and a couple of cheese spread things (one from yogurt cheese and one from kefir cheese) and pulled a container of pâté out of the freezer to take. My girls told me not to take the pâté because people would think I was weird. I was quite surprised to find out that about half of the people there loved pâté.
Two great meals from last week were the Beef Tips (from a menu mailer done by KerryAnn at Cooking Traditional Foods) with Homemade Noodles that we had on Wednesday night and Sauteed Chicken Livers (a very easy recipe from 1Nourishing Traditions) that we ended up having with Soaked Brown Rice. Both meals were delicious.
This week the girls will be back in school (which means our day will start at 5:10AM) and Joe will be working his normal shift which is 10:30AM to 7:00PM.
