Monday's Menu: What We're Eating: Leftovers for Lunch

I hope you all had a great weekend! Don't forget there is still time to enter the contest to win two AWESOME kid's products from Garden of Life!

On another note, I thought I'd share what we had today for lunch. Last night for dinner we had our usual Sunday dinner, a lovely grass fed beef roast with sweet potatoes. (Cooked in the slow cooker, and extremely easy!)

So today, here's how we incorporated our leftovers into lunch:

I had leftover sliced roast (warmed up in the oven) along with some Organic Valley Raw mild cheddar cheese. I also had some of the leftover sweet potatoes, along with my usual raw milk!

Nathaniel had several spoonfuls of leftover taco meat (from Saturday's dinner), sliced raw cheese, and slices of organic Pink Lady apples. (His favorite variety!) He also had his spring water and raw milk.

Micah had his Momma milk as usual, and then he had about 2 tablespoons pureed chicken (made with the same principles as my baby meat recipe, but starting with a chicken I cooked in the slow cooker.) He also had several spoonfuls of Nutiva's organic extra virgin coconut oil, and a few spoonfuls of pureed organic peas.

Mark was able to come home for lunch today, and he had his favorite: organic, grass fed beef hot dogs. He ate them on sprouted sourdough bread along with slices of raw cheese, organic mustard, mayo, and ketchup. He also had apple slices.

Tonight for dinner we will be having turkey burgers, (as a change from beef burgers, which we have often!) summer squash from the garden, as well as green beans from the garden.

Hope this gives you some ideas of what to feed your own family, as you journey on the Maker's Diet!

Ok..I can't remember if you've already told me this...ha;)

You said that you give Nathaniel the Ocean's chewable Cod Liver Oil? What brand of Cod Liver Liquid to you give Micah? I take the Garden of Life with lemon and mint. But I didn't know if that was ok for Quirt who is one year. I was just wondering if it should be plain.

Hi Kellye! I give Micah and Nathaniel the GOL Cod liver oil with lemon and mint. I wondered if it would be ok when I first gave it to Micah at 4 months, but he's been fine with it!
