Menu Plan Monday: Week 2 Detox


Well last week was HARD! I was hungry ALL the time. The only way I could stay focused was to promise myself a large bowl of my “ice cream” every night/day.

Some of the recipes were positively nasty. I have permanently decided that raw ginger first thing in the morning is NEVER going to happen again. I skipped making the sweet potato stew in favor of making sweet potato fries. (No ketchup since I don’t have any sugar-free.) Sweet Potato Fries were something that the whole family could eat together because by Thursday two different meals was getting old. I went through a ton of veggies and yes, I did get tired of chopping and I think my husband got tired of taking the compost bucket out!

Surprisingly excellent in spite of the work involved!

The highlights were the Antioxident Smoothie and the Berry Orange Smoothie. For lunch/dinner the Caluiflower Stir Fry was suprisingly excellent. (Probably would have been even better if I could have brought myself to put ginger in it!)

This week we’re doing things a little differently including adding in some of our favorite vegan recipes since we’re adding grains back in this week. Sundays are a “free” day–we can eat whatever we like, but try to keep it to stuff that won’t make the rest of the week real hard. Yesterday we celebrated my mom’s birthday so we had a bit more sugar than was good for us, but we didn’t have any gluten or dairy or alcohol or coffee.

Here is our plan for this week: (HOORAY FOR GRAINS!)

Breakfast: Antioxidant Smoothie
Lunch: Garden Enchilada Casserole, Tossed salad, Jello Salad, Lemon Meringue Pie
Dinner: DF SF Ice Cream, popcorn

Rest of the week:
Baked Sweet potatoes with Citrus
Banana “Oat” Pancakes (I will be substituting something for the oats since I can’t have them!)
Cardamom Quinoa Porridge (Since we don’t have Cardamom on hand in an effort to keep our budget down we’re substituting nutmeg)
Orange Berry Smoothie

Lentil Sweet Potato Bake
Grilled Salmon with Bok Choy
Roasted Veggies with Quinoa
Carrot Apple Ginger Soup
Perfect Veggie Burgers (over greens)
Cornmeal Crusted Fish with Parsley on Potatoes
Lemon Herb Sardine Salad
