I am feeling, once again, burnt out. I don’t seem to have the time to work on all of the things I want/need to. When I am feeling overwhelmed I know that the one thing that can help is simplification. That’s why this week’s menu will be the simplest of menus, while still nourishing for our family. I am continuing to cut back on grains until I find a good balance of carbohydrates for my body. I think I can eat about 1 serving of non-glutenous grains/day, preferably later in the day. I have also been baking with coconut flour and that seems to be helping a lot.

Here’s our menu for the week.
