Sample Weekly Meal Plan

I've been posting a bunch of recipes lately (and you should see how many photos of food I have on my phone that I haven't uploaded yet!), so I thought it might be worthwhile to share with you one of our weekly meal plans so that you get a sense of how we fit all these recipes in.

To download the menu, click here.

I've managed to give you a preview of the menu below. If you want the recipe links, you'll have to download the full menu plan. *Any recipe which calls for flour, just substitute your favorite gluten-free flour mix.

A side note: you don't have to make everything from scratch as the menu indicates- for example, you can buy plain yogurt or hummus. We just like to make our own. (Smile.)
