Menu Plan Monday!

Standard

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:

Breakfasts:
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

Snacks:
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
