7 day THM menu plan + what I feed my non-THM family

I have a lot of people ask me if my family eats what I do. Not completely. For an example, I am including my family's menu at the bottom of this post. I've also decided to number the days instead of naming them because not everyone does their menu from Monday-Sunday. So this way you can feel free to pick up where ever you may be in your week.
