Some 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.
- Fresh Raw Apple Carrot Juice
- (later in the morning)
- Whole Wheat Pancakes with real butter and real maple syrup
- Large Lettuce and Raw Veggie Salad
- Whole Wheat Crackers
- Almond Cheese slices
- “Raw” Granola – dried on very low on the deydrator rather than baked (only I had this, kids were eating a few grapes)
- 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)
- 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.
