Meal Planning Monday!

Welcome to our series on Meal Planning! If you are like us, we like to plan but are not always into cooking a million meals on the weekends! (We give props to those of you who do though!) So, come Monday we are usually trying to figure out what's for dinner!

This series focuses on easy to prepare meals that picky eaters will enjoy too! We are also focusing on how to make them allergy free - or give allergy free options!

If you have any ideas that you would like to share...we would like to post your recipe and give you your own blog post here on the Knowledge Safari blog! Just send an email to !

We think that getting your kids involved in the preparations can be fun, educational and end up with them eating a healthy meal!

How about Stir Fry Bowls? We love them at our house!

Here is what you do:

Prepare the base of either rice, pasta or a grain like quinoa - you can choose gluten free pasta or the grains are actually kid friendly and tasty too!

Put several ingredients out for each person to add to their bowl, here are some suggestions:

Meat: Strips of Beef, Chicken, Pork

Alternate: Tofu

Veggies: Snap Peas, Peppers, Water Chesnuts, Carrots, Celery

Dressings: Sesame Oil, Olive Oil, Lemon Vinagarette

No Peanut allergies? Add some chopped peanuts to the finished dish!

Once the items are chosen and you have a hot pan or wok going, put the fixings including the dressing of choice in the pan and cook until the meat is done and the veggies are cooked through and serve!
