Grain Free Menu Plan ~ September 10

In our journey to healthier eating we seem to have about 2 weeks out of the month that we do pretty great and 2 weeks that we do pretty awful.

I’ve got a pretty good guess on the reason for that (moon times have not been my friend lately) but in the meantime am trying to be grateful for what we have been able to do – and get the husband on board to offer more assistance in the kitchen during the weeks I’m feeling ‘off’.

The most exciting recent development for me is that I’ve finally gotten Dave to really work with me in eating a total real food diet. With his help and encouragement I know I will be that one step closer to making it work. We’re planning a grain free upcoming week and hoping to fully transition to what’s called the Paleo ‘diet’ very soon (something we’ve been doing off and on for several months now) – in our very busy schedule it seems like the strongest possibility to me to make a real food plan work.

We’ve also signed up to participate in October Unprocessed this year – should be a fun group with some great support – definitely stop by to check it out if you are interested!

In the meantime, here’s this week’s meal plan:


  • Breakfast: Boiled Eggs
  • Lunch: Chicken Salad
  • Dinner: Burgers topped w/Guacamole & Yellow Beans


  • Breakfast: Deviled Eggs
  • Lunch: Chicken Soup
  • Dinner: Pork Chops & Acorn Squash


  • Breakfast: Boiled Eggs
  • Lunch: Pork Chops & Acorn Squash
  • Dinner: Fish Fritters & Steamed Carrots



  • Breakfast: Eggs
  • Lunch: Black Beans & Avocado
  • Dinner: Steak & Brussels

I need to get on the ball as well with figuring out an alternative to eggs for breakfast – or a different way of cooking them at least. It’s just so easy to boil a bunch of eggs for the week (just finished a big pot of them right now) and grab a few on the way out the door in the morning…though I must admit I get pretty sick of them by Friday. I’ve got lots of ideas from Pinterest…it’s just putting them into action that’s the hard part. On my to do list at any rate.

Would love to hear what’s on your menu plan for the week – and whether you plan to join in on October Unprocessed! So much beautiful real food available in October…
