I haven't written a "Minimalist Meals for Many Mouths" post in quite a while, but last night's dinnertime #win was worth a repeat and a blog post.
Josh and I are wrapping up a 41 day "diet" called The Makers Diet by Jordan Rubin. The book is a MUST READ and the diet is biblically based. We may be almost done with the program, but we intend to keep this lifestyle going as our new norm.
I have been cooking based off of this diet and tweaking it to fit the kids needs (and pallets), but they are really beginning to enjoy the Romaine Lettuce Wraps (vs. rice) and Tuna (Chicken)/Avacado Salad (vs. bread and deli meat).
Many of the meals we have consumed over the past month and a half haven't been that far from what we normally eat, so don't think it's all that crazy!
Here is what we had last night:
Diced Sweet potatoes sautéed in grass fed cow's butter with a dash of salt and pepper. Then I added some chicken that I had cooked the day before in fresh cut rosemary, basil, salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder. (HERE is where I get our yummy spices)
Then I made some Okra sautéed in butter, salt and pepper.
Very filling, budget friendly for all family sizes and all the kids loved it (minus Rainy, but that's because she would live off of cheese, chicken and pretzels if I allowed it, ha!).
