Okay, so I believe I've mentioned my extensive meal planning before. I finally got a full 5 week meal plan for breakfast, lunch and supper. Breakfast and lunch have a lot of repeats and stuff, so I'm still not done on that front but I feel a lot better about it. However, now I'm reorganizing how I'm doing my plan. Instead of keeping it in my 3-ring binder, I'm going to hang it on my cupboard door. It's just so hard to always be going in a binder. I did this with my "chore list" a long time ago and it's what has kept our house from looking like a tornado came through (some of the time anyway
). I'm going to put each week on a separate sheet of paper and then just change it out every week. I'm working on a "Master shopping list" for each week, as well as a "Pantry stocking list" (items we buy at Costco or other stores in the city- dry goods). Ultimately, I see this saving me a whole lot of time.
What does this have to do with allergies? Nothing really, except... I'm going for a 3 day rotation for meats (at least... I will work on other things later, this meal plan is kind of just holding me together atm) and I find it incredibly interesting how easy it is for me to come up with meal ideas for one meat and not for others.
I wanted to ask too... How does that FitDay thing you were talking about work, Kathy? I was thinking about going over there to check it out before I start planning snacks into our meal plan so I could use the snacks to potentially "shore up" anything (nutrients) we may be missing.
