Welcome to my blog.  I document my adventures homeschooling and raising leaders of the future. And I also share some insights from my coaching practice using the Enneagram.


Sample Menu Plan: July

Sample Menu Plan: July

Each week I sit down and make a plan of what to eat, usually on Mondays. My goal is to avoid the 4pm "What's for dinner?" panic that always sets in and more than one trip to the grocery store each week. My family is experimenting with 3 different diets right now, so things can get a little tricky. I'm doing a modified paleo diet, but also need to cook for a candida diet and those who are only dairy-free too. This week I thought I'd share what we are having to give you an idea of what a typical meal plan looks like.
