Last week I mentioned touching base on snack ideas for kids. Every time I post a meal plan I add a few snack ideas at the bottom. These are just as much for Rosalie as they are for me. I believe 'kid' snacks can and should be whole foods as often as possible, just like the rest of your daily meals (trust me, we can't do this 100% of the time either.) My biggest goal every time I eat, or I give Rosalie food, is making sure we are eating FAT/FIBER/PROTEIN. We want to do this to stabilize our blood sugar levels. This is extremely important for overall health but also for preventing the unnecessary tantrums or mood swings from blood sugar instability.

Lunch for the Week
Egg salad over lettuce
HONEY GARLIC PORK CHOPS- This recipe I will have to adjust a little. I will use coconut aminos instead of soy. Then I will use a pressure cooker instead of the grill.
Ground beef over spaghetti squash and tomato sauce- If you make your spaghetti squash ahead of time this makes for a quick easy meal for that day that you don't feel like cooking.
Butternut Squash Soup with shredded chicken
Beef Stew- I will use bone broth instead of chicken stock and ghee instead of vegetable oil. I will probably add in green peas too.
Grilled Pork Sausage with Sweet Potato Tots- With the tots I plan to use Cassava Flour and pork fat in our Fry Daddy.
LAYERED CHIA & ALMOND PUDDING PARFAIT (This was a huge hit last week so I am making more but this time I am adding some collagen for extra protein!)
Hummus and veggies
Guilt Free Cookie Dough “Fudge”
