  1. Great looking menu! I didn’t get around to making those wheat thins last week, so I intend to hopefully try again this week. 😀

    Have a great MPM!

    This really is a very healthy menu. Thanks for sharing. I’ve never even considered making my own tortillas. I’ll have to check that out. Thanks!

    So, you soak the oats in whey during the day, dehydrate them all night and make the crackers the next day? Do I have that right? What is the timetable for all of this? I would love to make my own crackers, but can’t figure out how to get it all done!

  4. Emily- Actually I’ve only ever made the wheat thins with un-soaked and un-dehydrated oats so far. :-) I normally soak my oats for granola bars and for eating as a breakfast, but have never tried it in the crackers. It WOULD make them healthier, I just don’t know how they’ll grind up into a flour afterwards. I’ll have to give that a shot sometime. When I do soak, I normally soak overnight in the whey or kefir and then rinse out in the morning and dehydrate or eat. I’ve found it really only takes a few hours to dry them if you stir them around every hour or so. Otherwise, if you want to try to soak and dry them for crackers and you’re gone all day, you could soak during the day and dry when you get home (they should be done before bed) and either make that night if you have time or make the next day.

  5. What kind of noodles do you use for your chicken soup?

  6. Crystal, right now I use a whole wheat noodle, but would like to try it with brown rice noodles next time as they are easier to digest.

  7. Thanks! :) I use whole wheat angel hair pasta for my chicken soup. I like think noodles better. I will have to look for brown rice noodles…. I wonder if they would have them at a health food store?

  8. I’ve seen them at our local health food store, I just haven’t been there in awhile. I’ve also seen just one package of them at our local supermarket, but they weren’t really what I was looking for and they were super pricey.

  9. I meant to say I like thin noodles better! LOL My town does not have a health food store, so next time I head to a town close by that does have one, I will check. :)
