Menu Plan Monday–May 24th

Ah, Mondays. I’m scrambling around to try to get things together, and wish I’d done a menu plan before I hit Wegmans yesterday!

Our fabulous hostess is Wendy of Celiacs in the House. Her pictures of the Farmer’s Market never fail to delight, so go check out her site! Her theme is books, and I must say, I’m a little stuck on that one. The books I’m (re) reading right now are Tara Brach’s Radical Acceptance, Michael Pollen’s Omnivore’s Dilemma and Tomorrow’s Table–Organic Farming, Genetics and the Future of Food.. Uh…and I also just re-read “the hungry little caterpillar” by Eric Carle. Hmmm…most about food…and I still am not quite sure how to use them in a meal plan.

Let’s see: we’ll have quinoa for the Omnivore’s Dilemma, because I’m always trying to get us to eat more meatless meals to be more mindful of the environment. The vegan Tropical Lime Pie (perfect in my brain, totally untested and who knows how that’ll go) counts for the Hungry Little Caterpillar, because I’m betting I’m going to eat too much and get a tummy ache. And, uh…okay, I got nothin’ here for the rest.

About Cheryl Harris

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. That’s such a wonderful book that we never outgrow– from the beautiful collage art of Eric Carle to the tummy aches. 🙂 I will be looking for the results of that pie.

  2. Scrumptious says:

    I love “Radical Acceptance.” I actually only read the first few chapters and was like, “Okay, that changed my life, excellent!” and never felt the need to finish it. Someday I will, but for now I’m so grateful for how much I got out of just the first part!

    Your menu sounds delicious as always and I want to come over and eat pie until my tummy aches, too!
