Busy busy busy–and here’s what I’m eating

June 2nd, 2008 · 8 Comments

Whoo, I have been busy lately. I always make a meal plan, but lately, I don’t always take the time to post it.  In any case, here’s this week’s, starting with this past Saturday.  As always, it’s gluten-free, dairy-(casein-)free, soy-free, and egg-free. (It’s funny that it’s become such a habit for me at this point […]

Healthy Meal Plan for a Busy Spring Week

May 18th, 2008 · 6 Comments

Dan and I start our thrice-weekly work-out class this week. In practice, going to the class shouldn’t be terribly different than coming home and going for a run was prior to now. However, I’m planning to succeed by assuming that it will put me home later than I expect—-and planning meals as if I will […]

A True Spring Dinner

May 15th, 2008 · 6 Comments

I worked last Saturday morning and thus sent my husband to the neighborhood farmer’s market (which is only held on Saturday mornings) to pick fresh, local vegetables for our week’s meals. He came home with several veggies, including a bag of lovely fresh, shelled peas. He had picked the peas rather at random, but peas […]

All-Dairy-Free Week 2: My Meal Plan

May 5th, 2008 · 4 Comments

My dairy-free month is going well so far—one might even say too well.  As in, it appears the sheep and goat dairy was contributing some, um, lower-GI upset to my life.  Will I be able to add a bit of it back in later—perhaps just some goat yogurt (since I can’t have soy, after all)? […]

Creamy Wild Rice Soup from Super Natural Food

April 28th, 2008 · 10 Comments

This was the sequence of events: One of the other simplicity members and I had both taken note of Heidi Swanson’s macaroon pancake recipe. We decided to make it on our retreat. I took it upon myself to gush to the group about Heidi’s blog: the amazing photos, the natural ingredients, the quality recipes. Then […]

Fairly Quick & Healthy Meals for a Busy Week

April 14th, 2008 · 5 Comments

I successfully kept myself busy while my husband was gone (some might say overly busy), he’s come home from Europe safely, and he brought me gluten-free pasta from Italy! I hear it’s going to be fabulous, so I’m really excited about it.  Nonetheless, I’m holding off on using any this week because I’d already gotten […]

Sometimes simple is best

April 5th, 2008 · 7 Comments

. . . especially when one is eating alone and doesn’t commonly eat alone. This was my lunch: organic spring greens, pickled beets, local organic chevre, and organic bacon with a champagne vinaigrette (champagne vinegar, a dash of smoked paprika, a dash of agave, olive oil).  Oh, and my staple glass of water, of course. […]

Allergen-free meal for potentially picky eaters

April 3rd, 2008 · 4 Comments

My husband left for Europe yesterday and will be gone for 10 days.  I’m happy for him, because he’s getting to visit Sweden–his primary ancestral homeland, and a country he’s never visited–and Italy (Florence!), where he’ll be presenting a paper that is being published at a conference.  He’ll also get to see our Dutch friend […]
