Life is still a bit off at our house due to my injured back and awareness work this month so I have been adapting the menu to work around what my family is willing and able to cook plus what we have on hand until I can
drag go with hubby to the store this weekend.
Monday Menu Week #2
Sunday: Steak and Rice with Salad, Ice Cream
Monday: Whole Chicken, Leftover Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Biscuits, Salad and Animal Cookies
Tuesday: Pasta with meatballs, Salad, and hopefully a Strawberry Cream Cheese Butter Braid
Wednesday: Homemade chicken soup using the broth and meat from Monday’s meal, Rolls, Salad and Brownies
Thursday: Tacos (we missed them on Cinco De Mayo because we were out of town), Nachos and Homemade Salsa
Friday: Homemade Pizza & Salad (I hope to do a bit of grocery shopping to refill the freezer)
Saturday: Fend For Yourself because we are rearranging the garage
Breakfast consists of the following:
- hubby making himself sausage, eggs and toast everyday
- the oldest having oatmeal with milk, cinnamon and fresh or frozen fruit or cereal
- the youngest eating whatever she can swallow
- Occasionally smoothies with frozen fruit and yogurt
Lunch is usually one of the following:
- Tuna Salad
- Chef Salad
- Scrambled Eggs
- Apples with Peanut Butter
- Toast with Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chips
- Crackers and Icing
- Doritos and Sour Cream
- Pepperoni Sandwiches
- Sliced Cheese
- Nachos and Salsa
Our snacks are very often something salty in order to keep our blood pressure up and to combat our POTS symptoms. Yep, we are some of the rare few who actually need more salt. We also drink 4-8 bottles of water EACH a day. The girls drink 2 small or one large Gatorade, 1-2 glasses of juice and 1-3 glasses of milk based on doctors orders for controlling the dystautonomic symptoms and keeping us functioning better. (It won’t cure us but helps us become less disoriented, tired and weak as not following this regime).
I know our meals may seem a bit boring and bland to some but when everyone has food intolerances it can become difficult to please everyone.
How do you plan your menu?
Do you include food tolerances? Food Allergies? or Food Preferences?
