Menu for week of July 11th - July 17th

It's that time again!  I really enjoy the variety I get with doing weekly menus over monthly, but it seems like when I do weekly, I'm menu planning ALL THE TIME!  This week's menu is a little more challenging because I'm trying to eliminate dairy from Baby Girl's diet.  Since I seem to have trouble making separate meals (and it makes her feel bad), I decided to make as many dairy-free meals as possible, or easy/similar alternatives.

I think the most challenging aspect of going dairy free will be other "well meaning" people offering her food that she knows she's not supposed to have.  Last night, Hubby brought home a "treat" for the kids-Nutty Bars.  While I appreciate the sentiment, the fact that he brings home junk drives me nuts.  Plus, Baby Girl obviously couldn't have it.  I'm not sure what the thought process was there, but luckily I had already purchased some coconut "ice cream," so she had that instead of the Nutty Bar.  Crisis averted, but it won't always be that easy.  I'll have to have several back-up plans for when school starts because it will be much harder to make sure she has dairy-free choices.

Anyway, back to the topic at hand...

  1. I like your menu choices for this week. Going dairy free would be very hard. You are awesome for making it a family thing and not singling out your daughter. Good luck!

  2. My oldest is allergic to milk. Going dairy free has been a challenge. It os so much easier now - 5 years later.
