Happy Father’s Day! We are celebrating with a yummy breakfast and a day of family fun.  How are you celebrating dad?
We decided to add a second meatless meal into our weekly plan (this is a great just one step) With summer comes great prices on fresh produce so it made sense for us to take advantage of it and make it the centerpiece for more of our meals.  Plus, it will help us break out of our comfort zones a bit and try some new recipes!
*Quick reminder:  Our “Essential Oils in 5 Minutes” workshop starts on Monday (June, 19th) You can find out more about it HERE

 And now for the meal plan…

Breakfasts: I keep the pantry stocked with basic breakfast items and we pick what we want each day.  We usually have homemade yogurt, cereal / granola, and this week I made a batch of sourdough english muffins (they are quickly becoming our new favorite) *I have been pinning a lot of easy and healthy breakfast ideas to my “Breakfast and Lunch” Pinterest board, check it out for new ideas.

Lunches: I have a whole post with our strategies for packing healthy lunches plus it includes some of our favorite lunch ideas.  You can check it out HERE.

Dinners: I plan these out one for each night.  Typically we’ll have a “breakfast for dinner” night once a week, at least one meatless meal and one grain free meal.  I try to stick to traditional real food (no food dyes, artificial coloring, flavoring, or sweeteners)  I also try to make as much from scratch as possible, it is cheaper that way and I can control the type and source of my ingredients.
