real food meal plan ideas and my sources of food inspiration

veggie lasanga
raw snacks
TJ's veggie burger, onion, raw cheese and blanched asparagus with sea salt
quinoa with roasted veggies and raw spinach and cherry tomatoes
YJ's lentil soup, sliced apples, and lentil chips
raw lunch add rig, cheese, and good turkey
TJ's Curry over quinoa add raw kale and cashews

I've been getting emails asking about what we eat. Several have been curious to how and what we eat and some have wondered if my kids really do eat all this "healthy stuff" and they do! 

I've had several readers ask to share my meal plans or a list of ideas to help them get more creative with healthy food. So here's a very small, rough list of some meal and snack ideas to maybe help when meal planning! You can easily google recipes to some of these things or I'd be happy to share some more of mine!
This is just our meal plan for the week( and a few from last). I could add so much more to it, but at least this is a little launching place. I hope this helps with some ideas!

oatmeal with chopped raw apple, cinnamon, honey, and dried berries

coconut milk fudge pops GF chocolate chip cookies

Brannon Peep's Gluten Free Oatmeal Cookies

You may already know about these but if you haven't and you're interested in learning more about food... These are a few things that have really inspired me to eat better for myself and my family, I'm not endorsing every detail of them but defiantly found them insightful and quite informative! 
Forks Over Knives and Food Matters if you or anyone you know is sick or suffers from chronic illness (cancer, ms, diabetes...) watch these!
Food, Inc. made a huge impact in my view on the food industry and a big part of why I shop Farmers Markets when I can and try to buy local organic.
 Weston A Price Foundation- great information on traditional diet
The book Nourishing Traditions was one of my favorite wedding gifts and taught me so much about good food. (Thank you Erin :)

I hope this helps!

THANKS for sharing your awesome food ideas- looks super yummy!

jules said...

so cool! umm.... I see a CARLY JEAN FOOD BLOG!!! And a CARLY JEAN COOKBOOK!!!


Katherine~ said...

Carly~ I've been influenced by some of the same sources you mentioned, and it looks like we could easily share a meal together! This morning we had organic steel cut oatmeal with soy milk and fresh fruit, lunch was tuna salad on thin whole grain toast with more fresh produce, and dinner was lentil soup. Can't wait for our dinner of wild salmon tomorrow because it'll be the second real dinner I've had with Jon in two weeks! We haven't crossed the bridge to raw milk yet, but I buy organic grass fed milk products as often as I can, in addition to organic soy and almond milk. Oh, and Jon's totally on board and the kids all eat with a great appetite!

More importantly though, thank you for your kind comment on my blog yesterday. Thank you for your encouragement...


Drollingers said...

This is awesome! Thanks for all the ideas Carly! I love seeing all your food ideas on Instagram!


Carly Jean Brannon said...

Yes, Julie! I've been compiling and testing new recipes for a cook book. Fun things in the works :)

Katherine, I love it. Maybe we'll have to share a meal sometime!

Rachel, they are helpful to me to remember meals that Chad or the kids liked! I look through when I plan out my grocery list!

For those who have had a current medical evaluation, a web based drugstore commonly does not require
that you access another professional medical exam prior to filling your prescription. Generally these things take time but through online purchasing you can devote your time
on all such things. Moreover, these pharmacies offer two types
of advantages to buyers.
