It’s menu planning, healthy eating style around our house these days. We’ve been sticking to our healthier diet, eating healthier snacks and making healthier dinners. And no one has complained even once!
Oh, I jest. Okay, I flat out made that part up. I’ve been having the hardest time finding things all three kids will eat with no one complaining. I’m not a short order cook and I’m determined we’re going to start eating better so we’re having to work through this but I’m sure we’ll get there. Right?

For our healthier breakfasts, we’ve got:

Scrambled farm eggs, bacon in moderation (turkey bacon for my non-bacon family members,) whole wheat toast, fresh fruit, breakfast tacos (with scrambled eggs & bacon & chopped veggies), plain yogurt with honey, oatmeal, bagel thins with light cream cheese, and for lazy days– cheerios and shredded wheat.

Lunches include:

Sandwich wraps, tuna salad, cottage cheese and fruit, meat and cheese and veggie snack trays, black bean and cheese quesadillas, sensible sandwiches, string cheese, wasa crackers and fruits.

Dinners include:

Chicken fajitas, tacos, Grilled chicken, Porcupine meatballs, Turkey chili, Tuna patties, steamed veggies, brown rice, baked red potatoes and lots and lots of salad.

For sweets I’ll be making banana nut bread this week and we have pudding. I know there are still things that we need to improve in our diet but I’m really proud of the changes we’ve made and overall everybody is happy for the most part.

What’s on your menu?

Hey, y’all! I'm Amber, and I wear many hats: Pastor's wife, marriage advocate, eclectic homeschooler, mother of three, and domestically challenged homemaker--lovin’ life and livin’ deep in the heart of Texas.
I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
