    ~lemon chicken pasta with peppers
    ~pasta salad with lots of crunch veggies, some cheese and pepperoni
    ~baked chicken with roasted veggies
    ~taco salads
    ~chicken noodle soup
    ~last of the garden veggie soup
    ~meatloaf made with venison or elk burger served with baked russet or sweet potatoes
    ~pasta served with a roasted tomato, peppers, onions, and eggplant sauce (I just don't tell my hubby about the eggplant)
    ~homemade baked pancakes with homemade syrups

    *beef stew, beef pot pie, beef & noodles (using leftover roast)
    *cabbage and potatoes with ham or smoked sausage
    *eggs w/pancakes or biscuits

    1. Chili is a staple. I forgot that one. Turkey/chicken and rice Soup sound great.

    2. Chili is a staple. I forgot that one. Turkey/chicken and rice Soup sound great.

  5. *Potato Soup
    *Vegetable Soup
    *Corn Avocado Salad
    *Avocado sliced in half top with Pico de galo
    *Coconut Chicken fried in coconut oil
    *Healthy black beans, with stir fry peppers and onions burritos top with cheese sauce.
    In all my soups I like to add chia seeds, hemp seeds, coconut oil, dash of turmeric, braggs liquid aminos, lentils beans. All of these are high in nutrients they not change the taste of the meal.
