Grain-Free Weekly Meal Plan 5/11 – 5/16
Another week, another grain-free meal plan!
We are all in different places on our food journeys. Some of us are doing major food eliminations to heal our guts, and some are in the reintroduction stage. Some find my meal plans for some variety to their healthy eating regimen. Wherever you are, know that food eliminations are 100% worth it! Learning to eat nourishing foods and cutting out foods that are effecting your health negatively is the best thing you can do for your health.
There are more sweet potatoes and eggs in this plan than normal. I am eating eggs *very* sparingly, and not more than twice a week. I just leave them out of some of the recipes and add meat of some kind instead. In place of some of the sweet potatoes in the breakfast recipes, I’ll sub in zucchini or other squash for variety.
Flexibility is the key to sustainability during and after food elimination diets. When doing a food elimination, the foods need to be weaned off of and then eliminated for at least 90 days. If the food is consumed during the time it is supposed to be eliminated, the time starts over again. It’s a pain, I know, but it’s the only way to clear every part of it from the system to allow the gut to heal.
