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)

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
