In the raw simply means that I am not using a word processing program to double check my typing or my grammar today. What you see is what you get!
Grocery shopping day- I love it. If you are lucky enougth to have a Woodman's in your town, you have to check this store out. The variety is stupendous, and the prices affordable.
While waiting for my car's oil to be changed, I planned the weekly menu. Planning one's menu is well worth your time. I had so many "impulses" at the store, and I am certain I would have spent more money if my list hadn't been ready and waiting. OUr mixed blood type family menu includes:
Breakfast for O's: Ezekieal Bread, Raisins, Butter, Honey, wheat free fig newtons, chocolate soy milk
almost compliant breakfast sausage ( I am still looking!! Another writer mentioned that Shelton had complian Turkey sausage, but I just can't find it! I did find a brand with no artificial flavors, preservatives, msg, corn syrup, etc. The avoid would be potato starch. Hmmmm)
Buckwheat Pancakes (I think he is an O secretor), blueberries, more sausage, apples, grapes.
Breakfast for A's: Ezekeil bread, ghee, honey, prunes, coffee (for me!!), rice milk, barley cereal (Bob's red mill - I believe. Cooks up like oatmeal) raisins, pineapples, buckwheat pancakes, eggs, onions and garlic.
Snacks for O's: bannanas, dried cherries with sugar (no corn syrup! yea!!), mozerella cheese and grapes, strawberries (a netural for an O secretor according to typebase 4), , raisins, apples, pears, pineapple
Snacks for A's: dried cherries, pineapple, goat cheese and grapes, peanuts, strawberries, grapes raisins, wheat free fig newtons, pears, sunflower seeds,
Lunch for O's : Zuchinni Pecan Bread made in my bread machine with spelt flour! Juicy juice box juices or a bottle of water. (Yes, this is it for the week. my school age child will not touch cold meat, will not eat hot soup, and will not eat a raw vegetable other than carrots if his life depended on it!) Ergo, I hide the vegies in the bread. Did I also mention that he doesn't like nuts and I have to grind them to a fine powder in order to hide them in the bread? Really!
Lunch for A's: Leftover Rice soups from freezer (kale and mushroom with brown rice, yum), rice with sardines, and garlic, tuna salad with celery on Rye and Sunflower seed bread (thank you Woodman's!), toasted rye bread with honey and fruit,
Dinner for A's and O's who eat together: Chicken and Mushrooms with garlic, parsley and sherry, cheese and grapes, sauteed zuchinni with olive oil, salt, cheese, Italian Chicken (from Cook for your bloodtype with rice, ) Venision meatballs with miso gravy, rice and vegies, romaine and iceberg salad mix (in a bag), Sesame chicken with side salad.
Beverages: apple juice, prune juice, soy milk, water
While I don't have seven seperate dinners planned out, this is enough to cover us easily for the week thanks to leftovers. Heck, we still have muffins coming out of our ears.
Why do you ask, is there so much chicken for dinner? The answer: we bought a freezer full last year and it has to get eaten before I spend our hard earned dollar on something else. But here's the good news: I panfried that cod last night, and the family said "Thumbs up!". Slowly but surely, the learning curve is straightening out.......
