Grain-Free Weekly Meal Plan 1/14 – 1/19 and EMF Protection

Real Food Outlaws' Grain-Free Weekly Meal Plan

Welcome to a brand new grain-free weekly meal plan!

I sometimes wonder how long a person can possibly sit in front of a computer screen before going absolutely crazy. I’ve decided to put it to the test this week with back-to-back Master’s papers and this meal plan. 😉

I am looking into an EMF protection device called a Memon for my home. I have noticed that I am becoming increasingly sensitive to all of the electronic devices I am exposed to because of increased use. Since there are no long-term studies on the effects of prolonged EMF exposure, I believe it to be very important to protect myself and my family as much as possible. There is also a Memon device that can be put on the main water pipe of your home to protect from the pharmaceutical medications in the water. I do not have any affiliations with this company. It is simply something that was recommended to me and that I am looking into. 

This is my favorite time of year besides summer. I really enjoy the fall and winter flavors, the warm December air….wait a minute…warm December air? I live in New Jersey so the temps should be in the 30’s by now, but is has been warm enough for shorts and T-shirts for a few weeks now! It reminds me of the six winters I spent in Southern California. This summer girl is NOT complaining, and neither are my children. 

I want to offer a friendly reminder about food sensitivities. If a food has been identified as something your body doesn’t like by whatever testing method your practitioner uses, it is really important to wean off of that food and not to eat any of it for at least 90 days. Think of a food sensitivity as a toxin. That food is like a poison to your body causing an autoimmune response that can affect every fiber of your being.

According to Dr. Mercola’s research, some common symptoms of a food sensitivity are:

*Dizziness
*Poor memory
*Foggy thinking
*Learning disorders
*Seizures
*Paranoia
*Arthritis
*Eczema
*Asthma
*Headache
*Sneezing
*Runny or stuffy nose
*Puffy, watery or itchy eyes
*Blurred vision
*Earache
*Hearing loss
*Sore throat
*Itching in the roof of the mouth
*Candidiasis
*Canker sores
*Sinusitis
*Coughing
*Chest pain
*Heart irregularities
*Sudden changes in blood pressure
*Nausea, vomiting
*Diarrhea
*Constipation
*Abdominal pains or cramps
*Rashes
*Insomnia
*Chronic fatigue
*Swelling of the hands or feet
*Urinary frequency or urgency
*Vaginal itching
*Excessive hunger or binge eating
*Depression
*Hyperactivity (ADD/ADHD)
*Emotional instability or hypersensitivity
*Panic attacks
*Seizures
*Aggressive behavior

That is a laundry list of symptoms all due to a little bit of food! This is why doing a food elimination is SO important. As you go through this week’s meal plan, be sure to substitute out any foods you are sensitive to.
