Menu Plan

falfel2

Yea, so life gets in the way. Sometimes climbing the hills of parenting toddlers takes priority over any sort of organizational sanity that I so enjoy. Despite it all, I do in fact have a menu plan! It’s a good thing too, because starting this week I’m a Mama to three, three and under during the week. A friend of mine starts back at work and I’ll be in charge of smothering her baby boy with affection. It definitely calls for a plan since there is one of me and the little army will take over!

We are definitely hitting some eating challenges with Jonah. Getting in enough protein is a constant concern with 14 food allergies. On top of that, he has some unresolved sensory issues from past trauma that are causing him to hoard his food in his mouth where he chews, but never swallows. And yes, he is a picky eater on top of it all so weight loss is a real scary thing for us to deal with. That’s why we are keeping it kid-friendly, simple, and prepped for the week.
