Today’s Menu – On the Road

TodaysMenu

Real Life Good for You-Naturally! Menu Planning

Today’s Menu

Not much “planning” went into Today’s real Menu. I thought I had posted ahead to cover today while we were gone, but it’s not here, so I’ll give you my “on the road” menu for today – doing the best I can when choices are limited.

Breakfast:

  • Barley grass Juice – Barley Life/ Barley Max (raw juice powder, brought from home and mixed with a bottle of RO water – Aquafina. This is a good choice when you can’t make fresh juice, and actually good anyhow, because most people don’t fresh juice a lot of greens. We drink this several times a week at home too, usually for our second glass of fresh juice for the day, the first usually being one we juice fresh.)
  • Dried Apple Rings (home dehydrated with no additives, brought from home – the fresh organic pears we brought from home are gone – mmm-mmm, so good!)
  • Sprouted Wheat Bread – Food for Life brand
  • w/ butter and raw honey spread on it

Lunch:

  • Romaine Lettuce Salad with Walnuts and Vinegrette Dressing
  • Bottle of Reverse Osmosis Purified Water – Aquafina

Snack:

Really Raw Almonds (brought from home) & more RO bottled water

Supper:  We will get home just before suppertime, and then we have a couple classes/practices, so it will be fast and easy prep, probably:

  • Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Prego Organic Spaghetti Sauce with Mushrooms
  • Frozen Organic Sweet Corn – steamed
  • Romaine, Carrot, and Tomato Salad with Olive Oil and Red Vinegar Dressing (If we have time we’ll make it an Italian Vinegrette)

Today’s Menu – Real Life Menu Planning

TodaysMenuSome of you may like to see how Good for You-Naturally!™ Menu Planning looks in real life. Although I’m not going to promise to send a daily update for an extended period, I am going to post some of our menus of the day, in hopes that it may help you, especially if you are striving for a more Good for You-Naturally™ lifestyle of eating.

In our home the Fresh Raw Juice (and/or Raw Fruit) in the morning, and the large Raw Salad at Lunch and Supper are musts. Beyond that, the “other dishes” are optional. Our percentage of raw foods varies, but these are foundational to our meals. We are currently in a season when more cooked food has edged in, and our percentage of raw isn’t always as high as I’d like, so this may be helpful for those of you that are transitioning. But we still genereally eat small portions of the cooked, in comparison to the raw. (Well, until it comes to chicken and noodles – below)  🙂

Also, ingredients make all the difference. Most everything is made from scratch, with wholefood ingredients, organic whenever possible. No refined sugars, grains or fats, or additives. No, we aren’t perfect. But what we make in the home is generally the best we can do.

Today’s Menu

Breakfast:

  • Fresh Raw Apple Carrot Juice
  •     (later in the morning)
  • Bananas
  • Whole Wheat Pancakes with real butter and real maple syrup

Lunch:

  • Large Lettuce and Raw Veggie Salad
  • Whole Wheat Crackers
  • Almond Cheese slices

Snack:

  • Grapes
  • “Raw” Granola – dried on very low on the deydrator rather than baked (only I had this, kids were eating a few grapes)

Supper:

  • Homemade Chicken and Noodles over Mashed Potatoes (organic chicken, homemade whole wheat noodles, celery, onions, carrots)
  • Raw Veggie Tray – (large heap of veggies, instead of salad)

Evening Snack:

  • Fruit Leathers (organic, dried pureed fruit only)

I (and I’m sure my other readers) would love to see YOUR Good for You-Naturally!™ Menu Plan too. If you eat Good for You-Naturally!™ (whole foods diet) please share – Today’s Menu, or a favorite Menu, or even just a favorite meal or a new meal your family has enjoyed. I will be doing a Today’s Menu post occasionally, (perhaps regularly,) and would love your ongoing input. I will send on the Good for You-Naturally!™ submissions in the comments below.
