Grain-Free Meal Plan 9/22 – 9/28

Grain-Free Weekly Meal Plan 

Happy Fall! Welcome to the first grain-free meal plan of the new season!

Autumn is probably my favorite food season so you will see lots of pumpkin, squash, and apple recipes for the next few months. We do our best to eat in season, and there are plenty of the aforementioned produce items available locally here where I live. 

I’ve been keeping these meal plans grain-free because that is how we’ve been eating. I have myself almost on a paleo autoimmune protocol, but not all the way. I am able to test which food are or are not okay on myself, so it’s not as restrictive. 

I was asked recently if I could do my meal plans all adhering to the AIP guidelines. Since my family uses the meal plan each week (for the most part), the AIP of eating is too restrictive for them. They already eat grain-free, real food and don’t have health issues. If I have to eat one or two things differently than them, okay. But, it’s not really fair to make someone follow an autoimmune protocol who can eat raw dairy, nightshades, and other restricted foods with no issues. 

My goal is to minimize sugar and carbs, replacing them with healthier, nutrient-dense carbs like squash, sweet potatoes, etc. You don’t need the grains, even if you are an athlete. There are plenty of good carbs from the fruit and veggie department that can nourish you better than a grain ever could.

    This is wonderful. I am SCD, so some of these do not apply to me or I need to make just a few substitutions! While I don’t mind the cooking, I have difficulty with envisioning new ways to make food. I have subscribed to your blog and look forward to future posts.
