Monthly Meal Plans ~ February 2017

Please know that I do not stick to a 100% fibro diet. I’m a mom to five kids and life just happens. If you cannot stick to a good fibro meal, it’s okay – just try again with the next meal. These recipes are rated from one to five stars along with a link to the recipe, if I found it online. Any comments or modifications to the recipe are also left for each recipe.

February’s Monthly Meal Plan

This month’s meals were all simple due to me being in a month-long flare. My community had a chili cook-off at the end of February and I am on the Board of Directors which meant a lot of running around, long days, and compounded stress. This all resulted in a flare that wouldn’t end despite my attempts at lessening the pain.

Scroll down for details of each day listed in the monthly view below.

February 1

Sandwiches with chips and fruit

The ultimate southern staple, and can be used as a lunch or dinner or both!

Make it fibro-friendly: Substitute the chips with a raw vegetable such as carrots or cauliflower.

Comments: Making sandwiches was one of the first food items my kids learned to make. With them being able to make sandwiches, it’s an easy go-to meal during flares or when I need a helping hand in the kitchen.

February 2

Chicken salad with wrap with chips and fruit salad

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Comments: My kids don’t particularly like the nuts or cranberries, so I make two kinds of this chicken salad. One with everything for my husband and me, and one for the kids.

Make it fibro-friendly: Use a whole wheat wrap or omit the wrap to eat the chicken salad on a bed of lettuce.

February 4

It’s a sleepover for the boys, so pizza it is!

February 5

Slow cooker meal: Korean beef stew with rice and seaweed

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Comments: This is one of my favorite Korean dishes, and it’s even better as a leftovers because the kimchi can saturate the beef even more. Kimchi is a fermented food which makes it easy for your digestive tract to break down and digest. This dish is too spicy for my kids, so I usually let them have whatever they’d like to have for dinner.

February 16

Sausage biscuits with scrambled eggs

Comments: The biscuits were Pillsbury frozen biscuits. While the biscuits cooked in the oven, I fried the pre-made sausage patties on the stove. Scrambled eggs were the very last item to make so they would be nice and hot when served with the sausage biscuits.
