Grain Free Spring Menu

With Spring around the corner we’ve re-written our menu.  When planning I had to take into account a new factor, Carpenter and Einstein are now training at athlete levels; swim squad, weight fitness and karate all contribute to high amounts of fuel being expended which means higher intakes of protein is needed.  The boys were obsessing thinking about food constantly, the new menu has made them happy athletes.

First Breakfast – The boys fry up potato or bacon and eggs prior to swim squad or weight lifting. (all at 5am!)

Second Breakfast (first and only for the rest of us)


This was our weak area due to lack of forethought and preparation.  We’re more successful now.

  • Pizza, almond flour base and coconut flour bases.  (Almond flour voted the best)
  • Chicken Drumsticks & Salad
  • Zucchini Bake
  • Silverside & Salad
  • Crockpot Meal
  • Tuna Salad & Garden Salad
  • Fruit Salad & Cream


  • Baked Dinner
  • Savoury Mince x 2
  • Shipwreck Stew & Salad x 2
  • Baked Chicken & Vegies
  • Tuna Pie & Vegies x 2
  • Tuna Casserole x 2
  • Rissoles & Vegies x 2
  • Stew x 2
  • Eggs/Baked Beans
  • BBQ Steak & Sausages & Vegies


  • Fruit
  • Salad Vegies
  • Blueberry Muffins (awesome!)*
  • Banana Walnut Muffins (the best!)**
*I always exchange agave nectar for honey, and use either extra light olive oil or coconut oil instead of grapeseed oil.
**Alas I can’t find the source from where I found these:( 
I will link when I do.

    Thanks for posting this Erin! I'm really feeling the need to go grain free but the idea is daunting for a family that eats so much … grain! I tried it for just a few days on my own and felt so much better. But then we took a trip and I found it really hard to pack enough grain free food, that was easy to eat on the road. I can do lots of fruits and veggies, but my kids need more than that. Anyway, I'll be using some of your ideas!
