Real Food Meal Plan Ideas
I've been getting emails asking about what we eat. Several have been curious to how and what we eat and some have wondered if my kids really do eat all this "healthy stuff" and they do!
I've had several readers ask to share my meal plans or a list of ideas to help them get more creative with healthy food. So here's a very small, rough list of some meal and snack ideas to maybe help when meal planning! You can easily google recipes to some of these things or I'd be happy to share some more of mine!
This is just our meal plan for the week( and a few from last). I could add so much more to it, but at least this is a little launching place. I hope this helps with some ideas!

You may already know about these but if you haven't and you're interested in learning more about food... These are a few things that have really inspired me to eat better for myself and my family, I'm not endorsing every detail of them but defiantly found them insightful and quite informative!
Forks Over Knives and Food Matters if you or anyone you know is sick or suffers from chronic illness (cancer, ms, diabetes...) watch these!
Food, Inc. made a huge impact in my view on the food industry and a big part of why I shop Farmers Markets when I can and try to buy local organic.
Weston A Price Foundation- great information on traditional diet
The book Nourishing Traditions was one of my favorite wedding gifts and taught me so much about good food. (Thank you Erin)
