Autumn Meal Planning

· Recipes,Nutrition,Essential Oils

Meal planning is something I have found so helpful in our home, and I whilst I'm not always consistent with it, the start of a new term is always a great 'reset' button for putting a plan in place.

When we do create a meal plan, I like to enlist the help of the family in finding meals and recipes that will be going on there. The whole day runs a lot smoother if they a) know what to expect and b) had some control of the planning of it.
Taking the planning out of meals daily makes the shopping go faster, and it means that my husband can help get dinner started if I'm running late or even take over completely if I have a busy day.
If you're looking for some new ideas to add to your meal plan for the autumn (or if you're new to meal planning) then check out the delicious recipe ideas below. Not only do they taste great, but they're all full of oily goodness to help you get some therapeutic grade oils snuck into your families daily routines too.

Perfect Paleo Pancakes
When it’s time to create a meal plan, my children will almost universally want pancakes for lunch at least once a week. I’m not complaining. Our chickens lay a LOT of eggs, so it’s a great way to incorporate them making these pancakes super budget friendly in our house.

Mushroom Basil Fettucine
With egg-free noodles this dish makes a great vegan meal.
The flavour comes in large part from Crimini mushrooms and toasted pine nuts, subtly influenced by just a bit of Basil and Black Pepper oil.
