Enjoy this April 2022 meal plan with a printable calendar and easy, family-friendly recipes.
March was a weird month, weather wise. At least here in Nebraska. We had 70+ degree days. We had 20 degree days. And everything in between. Some days, I longed to break out the grill for a good steak. Other days, I just wanted a warm bowl of soup.
For my family, we’re still doing our gluten-free, dairy-free experiment and it’s going well. Really, really well. So we’ll continue! (If you’re diet is similar, check out these 50 gluten-free and dairy-free recipes.) I want a good baseline before we introduce some things back into our diets. When it comes to food sensitivities, what I want most is clarity. I really wish that, if something didn’t agree with a body, the left pinky toe would turn green or something.
But here’s a menu plan for those that aren’t gluten-free or dairy-free. This is a menu for the gluten-loving. And the diary-loving. And the meat-loving. And the veggie-loving. And the fish-loving. There’s a little something for everyone. Take this one as is, if you want. Or just using it as a starting off point. Take what you like and delete the rest. Make it work for you!
