Weekly Recipe Lineup Nov 14-19

Every week, I sit down and begin my search for delicious, nutritious meals for the week to come. I do not have a lot of time to grocery shop, so as a family we go every weekend and buy all we need for the week. It takes 2 hours sometimes to get my shopping list/menu together. Also, with one income household, I have found that our dollar goes farther when I purchase groceries for exactly what I need throughout the week. 

So why are you reading about recipes and menus? A  friend of mine suggested I post my recipes I have found for YOU. Maybe you will find one or maybe you will like all of them. Maybe this will save you some time/ a lot of time. Maybe this will get you back in the kitchen and having family meals together. Whatever this weekly post does for you, I just hope it helps in sort of way.

Here is what you will see (work in progress so things can always change)

  • 2-3 living/raw foods recipes on the menu. Living foods offer the best nutrients which are highly soluble and are the easiest for your body to digest.
  • We are a family that does not eat red meat. So there will be some items mainly fish, turkey and some chicken. However, email me if you want me to search for something you might be wanting to make that includes red meat!
  • These are 98% of recipes I have NOT tried. So please give me feedback on what you thought by either coming back to the blog, emailing me or posting on my Facebook page. Also, if you liked the recipe, tell the owner. All posts will have a link directly to where I originally found it. So share the love.

I would like to make this a weekly newsletter but until then you can simply email me and ask to be added to "Recipe Lineup." Your email will never be used for anything other than the weekly recipe lineup.

Share with your friends and maybe they will enjoy the recipes and save some time along the way.

Must Try Add-Ons

Yes I know it is getting cold, but we live in Vegas and my young boys still have 2-4 small popsicles a day. 

Tutti Fruit-ti Chocolate Popsicles 
note: I am going to blend till smooth to make a smoothie but then save the rest in popsicle molds for kids snack.

Peanut Butter Smoothie

Lemon Cranberry Bars

note: I have since made these too! I cut out half the sugar in the crust and did not use Vanilla. We use Pristine Vanilla Agave nectar as our sweetener. They were yummy.  Link to recipe:

Open Faced Bread Snacks

Superfood Brownie Bites

Autumn Chopped Salad

That's all for this week. Look for another post either on Friday or Saturdays. I have not yet figured out how I am going to work this into my schedule yet.

Enjoy and please share your experiences with the recipes. I will be trying them with you. If you get something out of it, share with a friend and have them sign up too. I am enjoying putting this together and want others to benefit as well.

Many Thanks,
