Menu Plan : September 28

You know, I got to thinking last week when I posted a few goals along with my menu plan, that I really should be doing it every week. Posting goals that is. Because I have a hard time following my own dietary guidlines when I don’t have them written out.

So my goals for this week:

  • No refined sugar
  • Something raw at each meal
  • No grains for breakfast


  • breakfast – kefir smoothies
  • lunch – salad
  • snack – fruit
  • dinner – hamburgers on homemade buns, homemade garlic french fries, corn on the cob


  • breakfast – eggs, fruit
  • lunch – tuna sandwiches, fruit
  • snack – celery
  • dinner – roast, steamed veggies


  • breakfast – smoothies
  • lunch – hard boiled eggs, veggies and dip, fruit
  • snack – fruit
  • dinner – chicken mac and cheese, broccoli


  • breakfast – veggie/cheese omelets
  • lunch – leftovers
  • snack – fruit
  • dinner – gluten free pizza


  • breakfast – smoothies
  • lunch – fried eggs on spelt toast, fruit
  • snack – cut veggies
  • dinner – chili and cornbread


  • breakfast – scrambled eggs, fruit
  • lunch – leftovers and cut veggies
  • snack – fruit and cheese
  • dinner – grilled chicken, sweet potatoes, broccoli


  • breakfast – smoothies
  • lunch – grilled cheese sandwiches and cut veggies and dip

So what are your nutritional goals?  And how do you make sure you follow them?

  1. A tuna sandwich sounds really good right now :)

  2. I was wondering about your goal to have no grains at breakfast, and was wondering if this was a goal related to fertility, or health, or what? I am trying to make some life style changes to enhance fertility. If you have a moment, please email me your answer at [email protected]. Thank you!

    @Emily, Emily, in short it’s kind of related to both. See, even if it’s whole grains, it still produces an insulin reaction to digest. And when your body has to many insulin spikes (sweets, natural sugars in fruits, and breads) it can actually upset your reproductive hormones. Because insulin is actually a hormone as well, and when one is upset, they all get upset.

    Plus the fact that I’ve not had a lot of time lately to soak my grains before I make them. There by causing my body to lose nutrients in order to digest them.

    And I personally have a problem with grains. I love them. :-) They are my comfort food. But to many in our diet isn’t actually that healthy! So, I find that cutting them out of one meal at a time can be helpful for me in weaning off of them again. Otherwise I tend to overeat and that is not helping my cause in losing some of this extra baby weight!
