Grain-Free Meal Plan 7/20 – 7/26

 

Real Food Outlaws' Grain-Free Weekly Meal Plan

Summer needs to slow down!

It’s flying by! We are coming into my favorite season for foods though…mid-summer. I am a little obsessed with cucumbers, tomatoes, and squash. We grill almost every night (using a gas grill on low heat so we don’t charbroil anything to a crisp) and enjoy fresh foods from our CSA and farm co-ops. We save money and eat great food. It’s a good life!

If you’re a foodie like me, you know that eating can be a lot of fun. Fantastic flavors, textures, aromas, all working together to nourish your body so that you can be at your best physically, emotionally, and mentally. Proper nutrition keeps you sharp!

Many people do not yet realize how strong the connection between nutrition and mental health is. It’s a proven fact the the gut plays a huge roll in what goes on in the brain. The problem is that most people, unless they are coming from a science background, do not have basic understanding of Anatomy and Physiology. If this is you, it’s not your fault! Our education system does not prioritize educating it’s youth on the inner workings of the human body they way it should be. By the time college rolls around, unless health sciences is the chosen field of study, that’s usually where human body education ends. Sad really. 

Nutritional deficiencies are often at the root of anxiety, depression, etc. Lack of nutrients contribute to a chemical imbalance in the brain that manifests itself as non-optimal behavior or feelings. Nutrition can help! Often there are other underlying issues/stressors/barriers to healing in play, but good nutrition is the key to sustainable, optimal mental health.
