It’s time for the weekly menu plan! And we will get to that as always. But you might be wondering why I’ve been talking about the microbiome so much lately and trying to eat mindfully to encourage the growth of good bacteria. So what am I talking about?  This is...

Weekly Menu Plan April 4, 2016 #glutenfree #menuplanning
