Those of you who have known us for at least the last few years know that G has dietary challenges. His diet is a moving target that changes drastically too often. Once I get a handle on what we’re doing to heal him, something forces us to change. Breakfast and lunch we all eat something different during the week and I try to cook us all three the same thing for dinner. I am terrible at planning! I get a little busy or lazy and start relying on the same easy foods that may or may not be best for Gage. I’ve been wanting to try something more structured so I looked around on Pinterest and found lots of ideas. I decided to go with this pin because I liked the idea of having a bunch of ideas on post-it notes that I could move around so that I didn’t have to reinvent the whole thing each week. I also liked that it came with printable templates and that I had a folder with pocket protectors that I could use. The only thing I purchased were the post-its.
I spent an hour and 15 minutes and I got the bare bones set up. I set it up for 4 weeks. I filled it in with basic ideas, not specific recipes. I need to spend the next few days filling up the Ideas pages! I’m sure I’ll be using Pinterest for this and when I do I’ll give you an update on how I’m using the new planner. I’m excited about it. I hope it will save me time, money and stress.
