We've had a few duds and a few successes this week. So far, this is what we've eaten. (And as a disclaimer, we're still getting started, so sometimes some non-FS things are still slipping in, and we're having a few of the 'moderate' salicylate foods too, but only every couple of days.)
Potato & Leek soup - OKed by most, not by daughter. Poo.
(that bread was for hubby and me)
Crunchy Chicken - loved by all - huge hit (yay)!
As you can see, Lani loved helping to make it too! We made enough for 3 meals, yay!
Preservative-free chicken sausages & home-made chips - also good! (with a teeny bit of BBQ sauce coz I haven't made any FS condiments yet)
Hamburgers with FS rissoles - good!
Macaroni cheese - macaroni with a home-made cheese/garlic sauce - daughter turned up her nose, again! (my kids are used to the store-bought packet ones, so its rather different!)
Chicken & Leek Risotto - success! (especially made into volcanoes/mountains) I shall enjoy some leftovers for lunch today! (although I made it with stock cubes which are a no-no. Plan to make some home-made chicken stock next week)
Still on the menu to make this week:
* Irish Stew tonight - yum! I loooove stews, so hoping this satisfies my need!
* Corned Beef with mash & beans (will have to make some sort of condiment for the meat though - sauces is where I'll come undone!)
* Wraps with crunchy chicken - mountain bread, chicken and will add a little lettuce, cheese, sour cream (seems OK? We are not doing amines) and a little grated carrot (mod sals).
So far, I know I'm feeling a lot healthier that's for sure! I think the concentration in the kids is better too than a couple of weeks ago before we got rid of additives/preservatives (have been watching them for a few weeks now)... Eli's toileting issues are good at the moment too, not sure if he's just on a good run - he can have good weeks and bad weeks - or if its the diet changes.
If you're doing Failsafe and have some AWESOME recipes that you think my family will love, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Will be great to get to know some other FS families too!
