This week my husband and I are challenging ourselves to to eat only unprocessed foods. Read more about that here. I had noticed a lot of processed foods finding their way into our diet. We weren’t eating hot dogs or other faux food creations, but I felt like I was relying on pasta a little to often. I also love sprouted grain bread and eat it at least once a day usually with peanut butter or almond butter. Sprouted grain bread isn’t bad for you and I’d encourage anyone to try it and make it a part of their menu but I’ll attempt to do without. This week I want to replace it with fruit and vegetables. I will very likely be eating a lot of apples with peanut and almond butter. My friend Aletia will be joining us on this challenge as well as Allie. Thanks friends!
This Week’s Meal Plan
Breakfast will be oatmeal, fruit and smoothies. Sometimes I have leftovers, especially soup.
Snack will be fresh fruit, smoothies, or raw veggies with Jalapeno hummus.
Lunch is typically leftovers, baked potatoes, or a bean and grain bowl.
Monday: Minestrone Soup
Tuesday: Black Bean and Quinoa bowl, think Chipotle
Wednesday: Split Pea Soup (I have never made this but my husband has been asking for it)
Thursday: Huge Salad with homemade avocado dressing
Friday: Lentil Taco Salad or maybe a Lentil Loaf from Chef AJ’s book.
