    Week 570 Weekly Menu

    Hey all! It’s time for some meal planning!

    Week 570 Weekly Menu from @janemaynard

    Regarding the whole clean eating thing I’ve been doing, I’m going to write a separate post about it instead of updating here in the weekly menu. As I talk to people in real life, I’m finding that even the most reluctant want to give some variation of this a try by the time we are done with our conversation. So, I’ll write a post explaining how I have adjusted my diet and why, along with tons of ideas for food you can actually eat when it feels like everything is off limits. Stay tuned!

    Until then, here is my menu for the week, with modifications for my current way of eating in parentheses.

    – Thai Beef Basil with Brown Rice

    – Roasted Chicken and Vegetables

    – Chicken Stir Fry, Brown Rice and Potstickers (no potstickers for me)

    – Leftovers

    Taco Night (Carnitas and Chicken; I will be having a fajita bowl with brown rice)

    – Eat out night

    – Breakfast for Dinner: Pancakes and Smoothies (Going to try these for myself and adjust to make them flourless and dairy-free)

    You all know the drill! Share your menus in the comments! Love that we are all back on this meal planning train together!

    Week 560 Weekly Menu from Rachel Faucett of Handmade Charlotte: Eat. Make. Groove.

    Hello! I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving filled with the best food! We did…and we’re still swimming in leftovers. My family has informed me they are done with Thanksgiving food, but I beg to differ. We shall see…

    Guest Weekly Dinner Menu from Rachel Faucett of Handmade Charlotte (Week 560 Menu on @janemaynard)

    Today’s guest menu is fun and different than anything we’ve ever had on the blog. It comes from my friend Rachel Faucett, the founder of the blog and company Handmade Charlotte. Rachel and I initially bonded as roommates on the ONE-Heifer trip to Malawi I took a few years ago (here’s proof). My connection with Rachel is something for which I will be forever grateful. There is seriously no one on this planet like Rachel. She has boundless energy and creativity and is hysterical to boot. When I was asking friends if they wanted to write a guest menu for my blog, she was the first to jump in, immediately responding with ideas and inspiration for dinners, crafts and music. I told her to run with it and now here we are. Grab yourself a cup of coffee, sit down, and enjoy a trip through Rachel’s meal planning brain, which is unlike any meal planning trip you will ever take.  Thank you, Rachel, for creating a menu that is just so you.
