Saturday is Valentine’s Day! I’ve included a yummy Valentine’s Day Menu in this week’s Grain-Free Meal Plan.
I like to cook at home on Valentine’s Day. There aren’t many restaurants around that I can trust not to contaminate my food with gross additives, and I prefer home-cooked food anyway.
I’ve been juicing more this past week. I had stopped for a very long time, mostly because I really didn’t want any concentrated fruit or veggie sugars in my body while I was healing from the underlying causes of my adrenal fatigue and thyroid issues. We had a juicing class at the office I work out of last week, so when my kids saw the juicer, they asked to make some juice. I went and picked up some yummy veggies and we juiced three mornings this week. My kids LOVED the “Everything but the Kitchen Sink” juices we put together. Basically they consisted of kale, spinach, romaine lettuce, fennel, Bok choy, parsley, swiss chard, water cress, celery, carrots, limes, and dandelion. Some had red and orange beets, and another had a small green apple.

Okay, on to the meal plan! I did include some juicing recipes this week. Click here for the juicer I have and recommend. It’s really important to NOT use juice as a meal replacement UNLESS you are doing a juice cleanse. This causes blood sugar issues. Be sure to drink the juice on an empty stomach and wait 20-30 minutes before eating. Eat a healthy meal with lots of good fats to make that juice work even better.
I tried to give a variety, for breakfast especially. Most people who have sensitivities to eggs CAN eat the yolks. Not everyone, but most people. It’s the white of the egg that causes the most problems. If you can’t have eggs at all, there are other options listed. You can always have leftover dinner for breakfast! That’s what I did for six months and I got so used to it, I still do most of the time!
