For health reasons we are going to try going grain free for about a month and see how we feel. I have been off of grains for the most part for a while, but now the whole family is going to get in on it.
We are doing a modified version of the GAPS diet in the hopes that our guts will finally heal from the antibiotics and poor diets we once had. We are also having guests for a few days this week so there are things like beans, sourdough bread and corn tortillas on the menu for them.
I am not entirely convinced that grains are that good for you, even if soaked/sprouted and prepared properly. But I have another post in the works about that.
As usual lunch is generally leftovers or a salad. Here is our menu for the week:
- breakfast: eggs, sausage, oranges
- dinner: roast chicken w/ roasted carrots, southern style braised greens, salad w/ homemade dressing
- prep: make chicken stock
- breakfast: poached eggs over leftover greens, oranges
- dinner: hamburgers, sauteed mushrooms, steamed broccoli, salad w/ homemade dressing
- prep: strain chicken stock, make yogurt
- breakfast: eggs & sausage, sauteed mushrooms, oranges
- dinner: sunflower seed pizza, braised cabbage
- prep: chop vegetables for breakfast, start pizza crust in morning
- breakfast: eggs, potato-free “homefries”, oranges
- dinner: greens quiche, sourdough toast, blueberry-coconut smoothies, roasted sweet potatoes
- prep: soak beans in morning
- breakfast: leftover quiche, smoothies
- dinner: taco salad/tostadas with beans (for guests) with guacamole and homemade salsa, carrot cake cookies
- prep: start beans in morning, bake cookies
- breakfast: smoothies
- dinner: nitrate free hot dogs, salad, fruit
- prep: none
