BEHIND THE APRON
Alisha Hughes “The Weight Watcher Friendly Table”
I am a working mom who is busy with three beautiful children under the age of ten. I am always on the hunt for healthy, easy, and tasty recipes. I meal plan because I have found that when I take a couple of hours at the beginning of each week to meal plan and grocery shop, the rest of my week goes so much smoother and is much less stressful. Cheaper too, since we aren’t eating out all the time. I am doing Weight Watchers so the recipes I share are WW friendly and the
Points+ Smart Points values are included with the recipes for others who may also be tracking points. My goal going into Weight Watchers was to lose 100 pounds. If you want to know more details about my journey with Weight Watchers you can go here.
Sarah Anderson “The Gluten Free Table”
My kitchen shelf is filled with cookbooks from paleo, low carb, gluten free, kid friendly, low budget, seasonal and good ole’ Better homes and Gardens. My cooking has changed drastically in the 12 years since marrying my amazing husband and then even more with the addition of my three beautiful daughters.
Then three years ago came the biggest change of all, finding out I was gluten intolerant with a soy allergy on the side. Talk about change! We went from being a comfort food eating, bread making, cereal eating family to having to read labels on everything just to figure out what I could eat.
My journey has been a long one and I spent a lot of time not meal planning or cooking. It was just too overwhelming. My hope in sharing my weekly meal plans and recipe ideas with you is to take away some of the overwhelmed feeling you may have in meal planning and cooking.
Ever since I was a little girl, dinner time around the family table has always been a highlight of my day. I want to encourage you to take the time to meal plan so that you and your family can make memories around your Gluten Free Table!
