We’ll be sharing recipes from the list in more detail over the coming weeks so keep an eye out for those! November 19, 2013 by Elaine Griffin 2 Comments Ben and I have been cooking together since he was just a wee babe. Working from her home office in Finger Lakes Region of NY, Elaine, a wine lover, also enjoys the beauty of living in wine country!

On to the 2 week menu for Summer Clean Eating, more of my thoughts on food and eating clean is at the bottom of the post!
Day 8: Crock-pot Steak Carnitas in corn tortillas with all the veggies they can hold (have you ever tried cucumber on your tacos?! Day 9: Mexican Stuffed Bell Peppers with quinoa and black beans – One Lovely Life (no quinoa? Sides for dinner- if they aren’t included in the recipe collection then add what is on hand.
Popsicles – Strawberry banana are a favorite at our house, any 100% fruit juice frozen is great too (and easy), I make a double batch of smoothie and freeze half in popsicle molds all of the time.
You have lots of snack options that go beyond sliced fruit, vegetables, and string cheese sticks, but those simple snacks are always winners and take very little prep on your part. Eating whole foods (meaning you are cutting out things that are processed, ingredients you can’t read, and refined sugars and flours) is so much more than food.
Natural sugars like honey and pure maple syrup are worth the cost and are great things to learn how to use. I’d much rather have my kids eat my butter, sugar, and white flour chocolate chip cookies than anything made with a box of sugar-free Jell-O. This is a message that I love to tell people about and hope that the message reaches lots of ears. PS- If you’d like to make all two weeks worth of dinner I have a free printable grocery list to make that even easier for you.
I love your common sense approach especially about letting your kids be kids and making sure they eat healthy at home and establish good habits but letting them participate with others when they are out.
Here are some ideas of the kinds of meals that you can make from The Ultimate Healthy Shopping List! It’s best if making combo dishes such to plan for 2-3 portions and store in containers for another day or freeze. Here’s how I’m grocery shopping and feeding eight people on the cheap. Here we are the end of the first week of May!
It uses recipes that can do double duty for those with food intolerances as well as the rest of the family. It is something we have always enjoyed doing together, and while he is not always open to trying healthy foods, he has a terrific sense of flavors and how they should work together to taste delicious! Our site will offer you healthy meals and recipes that kids like, and that they will like to help prepare. This student budget worksheet will help you with college budget planning for each semester.
See the blog article below as well as the College Savings calculator for more information about saving for college. Don't fall into the trap of heavily supplementing your meal plans with groceries or fast food. I have a whole food approach to eating that the whole family will love, no health food store needed. To make it even easier I have created a simple PDF shopping list of everything you need to make these 14 dinners.
I love to saute up zucchini with a little onion and butter and a heavy hand of salt during the summer. Keep reading to see my food philosophy and how to make this a lifestyle change and not just a 2 week diet. I don’t have a pantry full of health-food-store-only-products;I tend to learn towards traditional or “old-fashioned” ingredients. I have a wheat grinder (awesome investment…) and grind my own flour for bread, muffins, biscuits, and rolls. Grow a garden… it’s amazing how much kids LOVE what they have invested themselves in and watched grow!
I’m more scared of all that fake stuff than normal old flour, sugar, chocolate, and butter. I am intentional in my efforts to raise well-rounded kids who will try most anything, enjoy green smoothies, and who will never say no to ring pop.
Because it’s something I feel passionately about and want to share with you: I want you to do it, too! I’d totally love you to pin and save this post for later to help spread and share the love. I love blogging and it’s because you all are there to love, help, support, and make my day. I loved the post so much that I wrote a detailed ebook about feeding your family real food. We compiled the list with the help of dietitian Shelly and all of you healthy foodies that commented on our Facebook post! Nicoise Salad Wraps The first time I ever heard about lettuce wraps was in the context of In-N-Out Burger’s secret menu.
She brings her background as a sociologist, advocate, and educator, to her work and her writing, which has been featured on BlogHer and The SITS Girls. On The Laine List she spills her guts about life, motherhood, and balancing work and family.
Every college student should put together a college budget plan to determine how they are going to afford their college education. It includes many school-related expense categories, so you can get a good realistic start on your budget. I am always looking for new dinner ideas and sometimes, it is just so hard to come up with ideas. You are going to love all of the tried and true recipe I’ve been making for my family of seven for years. Eat sliced garden tomatoes with salt and cottage cheese and fresh cucumbers sliced with salt and pepper. You don’t need a health food store and a million dollars to eat well… making a few small changes will get you on the right track! Healthy, local, and sustainable food practices are good for you, your family, your community, and our world. Together we can all eat a little better without feeling totally crazy about the process, and I think this is a pretty great place to start! We are going to migrate this over to the new blog in the next couple of weeks, but for now it will live here.
You’ll see when you are cooking every night that you’ll have lots in the fridge! The plan should include not only a monthly budget, but a budget for the semester and the entire year. I feel like with the end of summer, I have a million and one things to do and not enough time to do it all.
I hope you enjoy this series, I am looking forward to it and I am excited to have to opportunity to share such a great bunch of recipes and meal plans with you!

With school starting in just a few weeks, we will be readjusting to a more scheduled routine to make the transisition a little easier when school does start.
The tortilla chips are probably the biggest “cheat” for my whole foods, but we all need a little convenience. I do however try to make sure what they get in my house is good for them (80% of the time). When things are in season they aren’t only fresh and super tasty but they are also cheap.
Obviously, my focus will be on quick and easy meals during the next few weeks to help get us through this transition time - and really, who doesn't need more quick and easy meal ideas?
