Menu Plan Monday!

One of the first things I started doing when I found out I had to eat a meat-free, peanut-free, oat-free, gluten-free, dairy-free diet was menu planning. At one point I just wanted someone to tell me what to fix to eat because it was just so complicated. I found that without a menu plan someone was going to go hungry! Either I would know what to fix for me and have no ideas for the picky eaters in my family or I would start fixing stuff for them and I would be tired and have no ideas for my meal afterwards. In order to try to help out other people who need a more restricted menu plan I decided to join Organizational Junkie’s Menu Plan Monday!

This week is a little different as I work on a cleansing diet. I have been concerned about sugar consumption and although my health is millions of times better than it was a year ago I still think I could be doing better. I am following my own take on the Whole Living Action Plan which does not include caffeine, any sort of refined/added sugar, no processed foods, no dairy, no gluten, and no alcohol. While my normal diet doesn’t include most of these, I think it will take some adjustment to try all the new recipes and chop all those veggies! I will let you know how it went when I do next week’s menu plan!

Here is the plan:

Orange Berry Smoothie
Antioxidant Smoothie
Grapefruit, Carrot, and Ginger Juice
Mango Tahiti Smoothie
Cucumber Pear Juice

Lunches and Dinners:
Red Lentil and Sweet Potato Stew
French Lentil Salad
Cauliflower Rice Stir Fry
Sweet Potato, Celery, and Apple Salad
Roasted Portobellos with Kale
Cleansing Broth

My mom’s version of Portuguese Soup although I left out the rice as we’re not doing grains this week.
Fresh fruits
Dried nuts
