This Week's Menu


Menu planning tip of the week: For simple and nourishing lunches, have on hand the ingredients for a "chef"s salad". Over a bed of greens, chop fresh veggies that you have on hand. Top with lacto-fermented sauerkraut (that' s the pink stuff in the picture above), shredded cheese of choice, and leftover meat (shredded roast beef, chicken, ham, or fish). This way, you can count on using up leftover meat and veggies in a creative, nourishing way!

Here's what's cooking this week, albeit a little late. I've been having a hard time getting "blogging time" as of late, but here's what's up and coming this week!

yummy menu. That salad looks great! What dressing is on that? Looks delish!

Thanks for sharing. Oh, and your egg article was spot on. I love my free range eggs!

Thanks, Angela! I figured I should probably post the salad dressing recipe! It's made with kefir cheese, olive oil, apple cidar vinegar, and herbs (garlic, onion, thyme, chives). I will post a more clear sort of recipe soon!

Thanks!

I think certain foods, such as commercial syrups and sugars, starchy vegetables, and dairy products are not allowed while on the diet.
