I’ve had several people request an example of the meal plans I make for our family. (I’ve been a little hesitant to post these because it will reveal just how unoriginal I truly am!) But I’m also selfishly thinking that there may be some of you who will kindly share some meal ideas with me as well! I am constantly on the search for new, kid friendly meals for our family. So, here is an example of what the Roddas will be eating for the next two weeks. Enjoy and then share an idea with me for my next 2 week meal plan!

I try to keep lots of raw veggies on hand as well as various fruits to supplement meals and for snack time. I don’t plan breakfasts, but keep whole wheat bagels, waffles, plenty of eggs and bacon and of course, cereal, on hand. For most people it probably seems as if corn and green beans are overused. I agree! However, I do often make steamed cauliflower and broccoli or some peas, along with a meal and just encourage the kids to try them. (They will eat almost any fruit, but are very picky about their veggies, unless they are raw.) I also have a whole other list of lunches for Grant (he takes his lunch every day), which I will probably share sometime. If you are interested in any of my recipes, just let me know. As you can see, most of what I make is pretty standard, but I do have a few “secrets.” 🙂
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas!
