Meal Plan Monday

Our garden is growing like crazy, so most lunches, we have been having a freshly cut salad along with our meal. It's so fun! :)

I also bought some water and milk kefir grains last week and hope to get them this week. I'm excited to get milk kefir back into our weekly diet. and I'm also excited to start experimenting with the water kefir grains. They don't add much as far as vitamins or protein, but they are full of enzymens and are supposed to be yummy. So I hope to add that to our lunch ritual, to change up the kombucha now and then.

We also got 2 books from the library 'The Great Salad Book' with some really yummy looking salsas, and '400 Best-Ever Soups' with hot and cold soups. I really want to learn to make salsas, soups and sauces, as a way to change up our diet. They can be made with mostly local, seasonal, inexpensive and nourishing foods. So this week I am trying a few salsa recipes and a cold soup recipe from the books. Granted, avocado and mango are NOT local, but they are so yummy and quite inexpensive at our local produce store.

Options: eggs, bacon, kefir smoothies, yogurt, sourdough pancakes , french toast casserole, sourdough waffles (2nd waffle recipe), breakfast cookies and raw egg yolk smoothies.

Lunch, served with kombucha for all:
Monday: Sausage Stuffed Peppers
Tuesday: Tuna Melts with mango salsa
Wednesday: Avocado and Lime Soup with Green Chili Salsa (from here), fresh bread
Thursday: Fish and Chips
Friday: Southwest Pizza
Saturday: Cobb Salad (with our own lettuce)
Sunday: Toast with Sun dried tomoato Salsa, and steak

Supper: Generally leftovers, popcorn and smoothie, PB& honey sandwiches or veggies and PB.
