The Weekly Menu Jan 30, 2017

Well it’s time for the weekly menu Jan 30 – Feb 5.  I need a lot of comfort food this week.

The Weekly Menu Aug 8, 2016

Ugh, August.  It’s too hot.

It’s time for the weekly menu plan April 11 edition! 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 in the gut. So what is the microbiome?

My Take on Asian Fried Rice

Hello Meatless Monday! So Asian Fried Rice?  It’s been done before.
