>Menu Week of April 4

>We spent the weekend away and had a wonderful time. At home we try to eat real, traditionally prepared food. But when we go to the homes of others we eat what we are served. We did not change our diet due to any significant food allergies so that gives us some freedom in our meals. Even though we do tend to have a few ‘issues’ so after our weekend away we’ll be focusing on a few things this week to get our digestive systems back on track. I’ll plan a lacto-fermented food with dinner and snacks for a few days will be dairy kefir smoothies. Speaking of digestive health, Shannon at Nourishing Days is doing a great series on healthy digestion systems which I have found very interesting.
