Meal Plan Monday for April 12th

When I discovered Nourishing Traditions a few years ago, I was both elated and horrified. Elated to learn that foods I loved like cheese, milk and red meat were actually good for me. Horrified because all I was left with was one cookbook that didn’t contain most of my favorite recipes.

Fortunately, I have learned a thing or two. Thing One: Most of your favorite family recipes can be remade to incorporate Nourishing Traditions principles. I am helping a friend do that right now and it’s easy! Thing Two: There are tons of recipes out there that are both nourishing and creative. Some of my favorite sites are The Nourishing Gourmet and Kitchen Stewardship. This week I discovered Kelly the Kitchen Kop, who has a whole section on healthy homemade chinese food! Bring on the healthy fried rice!

      Joanna – I want to show people how easy it can be to substitute ingredients. If you’ll email me one or two of your fave recipes I’ll use it in an example post over the next few weeks. Sound good?

    Hmm, haven’t even seen a recipe for sweet and sour sauce that looks like that! Tell me if it’s any good, and if it was good enough to go out and buy all the special ingredients!

    Katie, Gigi and I liked it but Daniel wasn’t a fan. Honestly, it’s been so long since we ate Chinese food I can’t remember what sweet and sour tastes like!!! Do you have a recipe we can try?
