Menu January 29-February 4, 2012

Wish me luck! I joined the Sugar Cleanse Challenge over at The Nourishing Gourmet. It’s all about cutting out sugar and refined flour for two weeks. There are three levels of “strict-ness,”and I’m officially joining under the Category 1 level ~ no refined sugar or white flour, however I’m going to *try* to do it at a category 2 level ~ only 2 tsp of all natural sugar per day. If that doesn’t work out for me, then I won’t feel bad, but I really hope I can at least stay with category 1! Since before Christmas, I’ve already cut sweetener out of my coffee, which was a big step for me!

Sunday: burritos with homemade refried beans
Monday: smoky tomato soup with candied bacon (using maple syrup to “candy” bacon), grilled cheese on homemade whole wheat bread
Tuesday: palak paneer over brown rice
Wednesday: sweet potato hash
Thursday: Spaghetti with olive oil, garlic and pepper flakes (using homemade whole wheat spaghetti)
Friday: homemade pizza on wholewheat crust
Saturday: salmon patties, quinoa (this got moved from last week as we had leftovers one night)

Breakfasts/Other:
Rich Whole Grain crackers (using homemade yogurt and maybe almond, flax and whole wheat flour)
cheesy quinoa bites
Elder Rosehip syrup~ just opened the last jar of elderberry syrup last week
