Our church’s Mother Daughter banquet is Saturday at lunch, and I need to bring a dessert. It needs to be something special, and I’d like it to be something healthy (or at least healthier). Any ideas?
Here’s our menu plan for this week. We’re working on cutting back even more on refined, processed foods and sugars. The more I read about diabetes, PCOS, insulin, and general health, the more I’m convinced we need to eat better. We did low carb for a while, and it worked well, but we ate a lot of artificial sweeteners and processed meats then as well. Now I’m trying to remove the sweeteners and processed just about everything. It’s proving to be quite the challenge.
Monday: Samuel’s birthday dinner. He requested pizza and birthday cake. (He originally asked for tuna sandwiches, but then changed his mind.)
Tuesday: chicken artichoke casserole, brown rice
Thursday: chicken pot pie
Friday: date night
Saturday: stir fry (not sure what type of meat yet)
The meals without veggies listed we’ll just decide then which veggie to eat from the freezer.
Breakfasts are smoothies, eggs, oatmeal, biscuits, and scones.
Lunches are sandwiches, wraps, macaroni and cheese, and leftovers.
Snacks are cheese, baby carrots, nuts, and fresh fruit.
