Our Menu This Week (July 19 - 25)

The kids are healthy again, although this last sickness has thrown my son for a loop. He is no longer interested in eating things he used to like, so I feel like we're back to square one. I'll be seeking information on why a big viral illness like coxsackie (which my kids had) can make him not want to eat anymore. Ugh!

We are still rotating proteins each day, and I like it. Helps me stay organized I think.


Saturday: Lime Chicken in chicken coconut rice

Sunday: Cod cooked in the oven with potatoes

Monday: Hot dogs for kids; Turkish meatballs (kofte) for mom & dad

Tuesday: Turkish lentil dish made with ground turkey and no tomato paste

Wednesday: Bean chili with tomatoes (no meat)

Thursday: Breakfast for dinner: Teff pancakes

Friday: Pasta (???)

Well, my son bounced back and, the day after I first posted this, he tried 3 new foods! Yee-haw! So he's back on the eating track now, thank God! We pretty much stuck to our menu this week too, which was new and exciting, ha ha! Here's how the week went down:

Saturday: Lime Chicken in chicken coconut rice

Sunday: Cod cooked in a frying pan w/olive oil; red potatoes done same way

Monday: Hot dogs for son; Turkish meatballs (kofte) for mom & dad & daughter

Tuesday: Turkish lentil dish made with ground turkey and no tomato paste

Wednesday: Bean chili with tomatoes (no meat) served with Garden of Eatin' corn chips

Thursday: Breakfast for dinner: Teff pancakes and Wellshire Farms turkey ham steak

Friday: Tinkyada pasta spirals with Wellshire Farms turkey ham steak, coconut oil, salt, and garlic powder

Tori - try a very small amount (a 1/4 of the recommended adult dose - but your guy is older than mine so maybe 1/2 of an adult dose) of liquid B12 complex to getting him feeling hungry again. It works every time for my guy - I use it after every ear infection - he stops eating so I give him 1-3 drops and by the next day he's right back on track.
