Menu Plan Monday - January 11th

Welcome to another week of meals at The Working Home Keeper! 

A note about ingredients - Last year, our family made a switch to whole and nourishing foods. Most ingredients used in the making of these recipes are organic, organically-grown and/or natural (free from HFCS or preservatives).  Most of our meats come from local farms where the animals are raised humanely and fed a diet that is natural to them.  For cooking, I use traditional oils - olive oil, butter and organic, cold-pressed, extra virgin coconut oil. Local honey or organic sucanat is used in place of refined sugar.

This Week's Meals:

Scrambled pastured eggs (local), pastured pork sausage (local) & sprouted, whole wheat toast
Soaked oatmeal (The Nourishing Gourmet)
Sprouted cereal
Homemade crockpot yogurt (with fruit, dried fruit and/or local honey)

Usually sandwiches or dinner leftovers

Minestrone Soup (The Prudent Homemaker) & sourdough bread

Lentil Chili & homemade cornbread (Tammy's Recipes)

The Man of the House cooks - Homemade Egg Rolls

Shepherd's Pie made with local, grass-fed & finished beef (Daily Diner)

Yellow Split Pea Dhal & Naan (Easy Indian in Minutes cookbook)

Salmon Patties with organic brown rice & steamed organic green peas

  1. Yummy! I/we love organic food. We feel so much better without all those chemicals in our body.

  2. Last year my family started focusing on eating whole foods and buying from local sources, and this year we're going to take it up a notch so I'm glad to have your blog as a resource. I'm also a big fan of "The Man of the House Cooks". I may have to see if I can sell that at my house :-)

    Your menus look fantastic - thank you for sharing.

  3. Thank you for sharing your Menu Plan! I am always looking for new ideas to feed my family.
