Menu Plan Monday

left to right: kefir, stage 1 blender pancakes, white beans soaking, beef bone broth
aka Sunday's to do list
I subscribe to a meal plan from Nourished Kitchen that I bought when it was on sale. I highly recommend for anyone trying to get into eating real food who has a hard time doing their own meal plans. I usually pull one or two recipes off it at a time and keep the others stored away for later. This week though every single meal appealed to me, so I'm taking an easy route and just following it straight for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday dinners. I don't think the recipes are posted on her site yet, and I'm sure it would be illegal for me to publish them but if you are curious about any, leave me a comment and I'll email you back.

Breakfast - Blender Batter Pancakes (this is past, and they were the very best pancakes I have EVER made! Try them!) using whole wheat berries, rolled oats and milk kefir

Every time you post your weekly meal plan, Erin, I think I need to do this! But I never get around to it. Last night, I was thinking chicken and rice, but I opened my just purchased chicken and it was bad! Total calamity :)
