Welcome to week 2!

So how did the first week  of October Unprocessed go for everyone?

Here, we did alright. I create meal plans like the one you’ll find below, and I almost always go out of order. This year Matt was unexpectedly home because of the government shutdown, and that changed our schedule quite a bit. In some ways it made things easier, and it’s also more difficult for me to stick to the rules with him around. He’s gotten much better about food choices in the past few years, and he can still pull me off track pretty easily 🙂

I haven’t gotten a chance to make my favorite butternut squash soup yet (on last week’s plan). It’s one of my favorite fall recipes. so I’m heading to the farmer’s market in a few minutes to pick up some squash and get to work.

This week, I’m looking forward to using up some of our garden tomatoes in this fresh tomato and cheddar breakfast tart, and every single one of my dinners planned for this week is a family favorite.

Here’s a link to my meal plan for this week, which comes with links to most recipes. As usual, a few recipes may need slight modifications to be truly unprocessed.  All are fertility-friendly and super delicious.

Mining for Ideas?

Several people have asked me where I come up with the recipes. Most of them are things I initially found on Pinterest. I’ve vetted almost all of them, and the ones listed are those that we’ve adopted as part of our regular meal rotation. Follow me there for more ideas. And if you’re on Pinterest, please post a link to your profile or real-foods boards below. I’m always in the market for more inspiration.
