Grain-Free Meal Plan 4/20 – 4/26

Real Food Outlaws' Grain-Free Weekly Meal Plan

Food is Beautiful.

The colors, tastes, textures…all so beautiful. On my healing journey, many times food became the enemy. Through it I learned to see the beauty in healthier foods, in vegetables, proteins, healthy fats. I learned to eat properly, avoiding even natural sugars, and grains. I learned to listen to my body and be very selective about what I chose to nourish my body with. I now know what foods make me feel the healthiest and what foods do not. 

I’ve learned that self-sabotage is the one thing that hinders healing the most. During a healing, nutrition program it is crucial to follow a food plan and write everything you eat down. This is not a forever thing. Most foods can be reintroduced at some point once the body heals. Often it’s something we are eating or drinking every day that is causing the problem, whether we want to admit it or not. 

Giving up that evening sweet treat seems to be a huge issue for a lot of people. A treat is a treat is a treat. Sugar is sugar. It doesn’t matter if it’s grain-free, sugar-free, paleo…it’s still a treat. Treats are meant to be eaten once-in-awhile, not every day. If you are not seeing the results you want, your food IS the key. Take a good, hard look at everything you are eating and drinking and play detective. What are you eating other than protein, good fats, and vegetables that could be hindering your progress? Stock your fridge and pantry with real, nourishing foods and get rid of anything that isn’t. Eliminate those foods for two weeks and see if there is a difference. Trust me! It works!
