Week 1! What a fun experience. Annabelle really took to solids, so fast. I was really impressed with her. And Alexander just thought everything about it was hilarious. Here is week 1, by the numbers:
Annabelle hits 6 months (26 weeks) at the end of July (2016). That means we’ll start solids late July or maybe early August (if she happens to be sick or we’re out of town or something on the actual 6 month mark).
In this post, I talk about (a) the dirty dozen foods, (b) low-cost meals, and (c) a Whole30 week meal plan for 2 adults and 1 toddler. Below is the vlog you can watch as well! I am using a separate YouTube channel where I’ll share meal plans, grocery hauls, toddler activities, adventures in Montessori homeschooling, house projects, and more! I’d love if you subscribe!
I’m going to have a baby around the end of January 2016. I plan to have at least 1 month of meals, in the freezer, for the month-plus after the baby comes. I figure I’ll have folks here to help out and cook fresh for/with me, but once all that slows down, I want to have some meals in the freezer that are easy to throw into a crock pot or into the oven. Once I come up with that plan and the meals I want to use, I’ll totally share them with you guys!
Here are a few more details for the ideas above. Many of the ideas don’t really have a recipe! And some of it is leftovers. If you want more detailed meal plans with recipes attached, check out my products page!
