Divine Dinners: 5 Meal Ideas to Inspire Your Menu Plan

by lydia on March 26, 2012

Welcome to Divine Dinners, my weekly meal plan, where each Monday I will post 5 dinners that my family enjoys. Often they will just be my previous week’s meal plan. We are a family of five, with four hungry growing boys ages 13-4 and myself. Around here, we consume pastured/grass fed meats at every meal, lots of veggies, very little grains or starches (more so in the winter), something raw or fermented at every meal if possible, and as much in season as possible. We follow a properly prepared nutrient dense diet as taught in Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon, based on the teachings of Weston A. Price. We eat soup or stew as a family at least one meal per week in the winter, as it is a total budget saver. Often we’ll have leftovers at least once per week so I can take a break from cooking.  Additionally, I often batch cook meals to freeze some for a later date. This is a convenient way to save time, energy and stress. I love it when I can pull dinner out of the freezer. We don’t have desserts very often. All our food is gluten free as well. If that sounds like the way you would like to eat, then be sure to subscribe to my feed and have a week of meals in your inbox each Monday. I may or may not include links to the actual recipes I post. The point of this is mainly to inspire ideas to implement.
