Meal Plan Monday: September 3, 2012

monday-meal-planHappy Labor Day! Here is my new Meal Plan Monday for the week of September 3, 2012.

Though many of you may be grilling out today, we’re finally headed back to Nashville after spending the week in Florida remembering my Father in Law.

That being said, I honestly haven’t given a lot of thought to what we’ll be eating this week.

What I do know is that I went off my gluten free/dairy free meal plan for a day this week and boy, did I pay for it! (but you should have seen the dishes we were being blessed with by the neighbors!).

So even though we’re traveling, I want to re-focus and get back on track.

Since I’m still figuring out exactly what this means for my eating, I haven’t switched my family over completely yet, but as I learn more I hope to start making gradual changes…and of course will be sharing those decisions with you!

I haven’t looked at my eMeals gluten-free meal plan yet this week, so I’m going to be winging it for now 😉

Remember, we also started a standard breakfast schedule for our family – that way the kids and I know exactly what they’ll be eating for breakfast each day of the week and can be better helpers to me! Sometimes I’ll cook pancakes & waffles in big batches on the weekends so I have them on hand during the week, but Trader Joe’s also makes extremely tasty (and reasonably priced!) gluten-free & dairy-free waffles and pancakes that the kids think are the “best in the world”!
