The other day when I posted about "my brain," I included resources that I use to help get my brain in order. However, I forgot about one wonderful resource I use all the time.... The Low Carb Diner ebook. This book has an amazing section in the beginning explaining how you can simplify your meal planning. Lisa takes you through the steps to get your kitchen preparation and messes down to the fewest amount of days possible, but with delicious dishes coming out of it every day. I love to cook once a month and use freezer meal planning quite a bit. Lisa includes some freezer recipes as well as including other quick meal ideas (like how to make 3 meals at once) and ways to plan for the whole thing. It is really a WONDERFUL resource I use so much that I forgot to include it...it is just such a natural part of what I do now!
Another wonderful thing about this ebook is, since it is Low Carb, most of the recipes are 100% safe for those of us that are Gluten-Free. I can't think of anything off the top of my head that may need a substitution, but she might have soy sauce in a recipe or two.
She has a blog that goes along with the ebook and expounds on it. She includes more recipes, explains how she makes things and has beautiful pictures.
Although I am doing this of my own volition and get no money out of the deal (I just want to share the great resource!), I feel it is only right that I let you know that Lisa is a wonderful friend of mine as well. :-) She is an exceptional lady with a great family. I have been privileged to know her for about 10 years now.
