Meal Planning #11: Healthy, Wholesome, Mouthwatering

I typically spend a few hours, each day hitting different sites to find recipes I would love to make, showcase or just have on hand. From all this searching, I have come to find out two things. First, you may have noticed Facebook, Twitter, websites, blogs are filled with delicious recipes for Vegan and Gluten Free meals, snacks, desserts etc. I have really changed how I search and save recipes. I want to make sure the ingredients are not created in some lab, no refined sugar (American eat over 140lb of sugar a year) and as little flour (baking, bleached/unbleached flour, nut flour is optimal) as possible.  I might even consider making a Pinterest Board, that says, Recipes to Remake

So for this week, there are 25 spotlighted recipes. 

{NEW} this week, there are almost another 100+ recipes in my Helpful Links. These are links that I thought might interest you. 

I found some great Vegan, Gluten Free recipes with ideal (in my mind) ingredients. I think they are worth trying. You will definitely get your vegetables. There are a few recipes that have zucchini and chickpeas in them. The reason for this, is as a family on a budget, I tailor my grocery list around what I am buying. If I could get a few recipes out of the same ingredient, well than my buck goes further.
