{Meal Plan} Pinning and Planning Our Dinner Menu – Week of September 18

I’m not going to lie. Thanks to my husband’s food allegies, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to plan meals for my family. Planning meals that pleases everyone and are void of tomatoes, beans and rice (foods we typically love) is getting tougher and tougher each week. After all, beans, rice and tomatoes are staples when you grow up in a Hispanic-Italian home. And not to mention, beans make up many British meals too.

Yes, I am at a loss.

I’ve never been one to eat the same meals over and over. That’s so boring and basic. I love variety and changing things up; and yet, here I am cooking the same meals each week and becoming a short-order cook preparing foods separate to avoid cross-contamination. We’ve also found ourselves eating more meat to replace the absence of beans, since we need the right balance of protein for our active lifestyle.

So, if you have any suggestions, I am all ears. Just remember, what foods we need to avoid: beans, rice, tomatoes, eggplant, broccoli, cauliflower, peanut butter, tree nuts and soy.
