My new eating program is challenging my menu planning skills, but thus far I am doing great on it and am starting to feel better. (I recently found out I have a large yeast build up in my intestines, which has likely been the cause of many of my recent medical issues. I can have no fruit, beans or carbs at this early stage. Right now I am just eating meat, veggies, and eggs. Tofu would be allowed, but I can’t have it thanks to my food intolerance. Starchy vegetables are also not allowed at this time.)
I still try to make one meal that the whole family can eat and just add a carb for the rest of the family like bread, rice or beans after a soup has cooked, and I have taken out my portion.
Here is what is on the menu for this week:
Saturday–Salmon with fish rub, arugula salad with tomatoes (and rice for the rest of the family) for lunch; Tomato sauce with ground beef and Swiss Chard over Eggplant for me and over pasta for the family
Sunday–Taco salad for lunch (regular tacos for the rest of the family); chicken and arugula salad for dinner (with rice added for the family)
Monday–Peppers stuffed with ground turkey, tomatoes and seasonings (with rice added for the family)
Tuesday–Spicy Beef and Cabbage Soup (Italian bread served on the side for the family)
Wednesday–Slow Cooker Creole-Style Lamb Soup (rice on the side for the family)
This is a tentative plan for the rest of the week and will depend what we get in our CSA basket on Tuesday
Thursday–Tuscan Chicken Thighs with Spinach (and white beans for the rest of the family)
Friday–Fish with a rub on it for seasoning, veggie (depending on what comes in the CSA) and (Sweet Potato fries for the family)
