Week 2 Meal Plan | Thank the Heavens for Winter Farmers Markets!
I blew my grocery budget at our local farmers market this week. For the second week of January, you would not believe the beauty of the food!
I bought 2 bags of salad mix, a bag of fresh spinach, mushrooms, eggs, carrots, celery, sweet potatoes, and onions!
Here’s what we did with all that magic…(click to download pdf)

Recipe Round-Up for Week 2 of Seasonal Eating
Let’s start at the end. If you haven’t made cauliflower pizza crust, you must!
It takes a while, so it’s a perfect winter Saturday afternoon cooking project. I have a recipe from an old colleague that I don’t have permission to share, so here’s a recipe that is pretty similar.
Really, do this! It’s a fun kitchen project and tasty, too.
PS – skip the microwave and steam the cauliflower rice. It doesn’t take that much longer and is more in keeping with the slow cooking philosophy.

This 50+ page planner will help you create your seasonal life in 2020!

I am not a nutritionist.
These are simply my actual meal plans for the 52 weeks of 2020.
You will notice that my meals are low carb. This is a lifestyle choice of my own and I do not advocate or recommend any dietary regimen. If you would like to explore the nutritional aspects of meal plans, work with a certified nutritionist.
As a recommendation, I use the products and programs of Karen Martel. I am not an affiliate of her programs, just a fan.
There’s a party happening and we’re waiting for you to arrive!
We also gather over email once a week to focus on one specific garden, kitchen, or wellness topic in-depth, with lots of step-by-step how-to’s. The best way to jump into the email conversation is with the Seasonal Living Workbook, you can download it here and explore the seasonal living framework with an email course!
So much love and free information in one place, but it’s not the same without YOU!
