Meal Planning ~ Week of 9/8/13

It's been about three weeks since I've been eating gluten-free. This week, I am going start a detox program to help heal my small intestines from gluten-related damage.

The diet is very strict and basically only allows fresh meats (no eggs), veggies, and low-sugar fruits. Paleo peeps, welcome me temporarily to your family.  

I went to the farmer's market and Sprout's today to pick up organic ingredients for me to cook meals and juice this week. I am usually accustomed to shopping for 1-2 days at a time, so it will be challenging for me to commit to almost a week's worth of food in order to minimize waste.

Here is my general game plan for this week. Detailed recipes to follow.


  • B - Canadian Bacon & raw, sliced organic heirloom tomatoes that I bought from the Brea Farmer's Market ($3/lb.)
  • L - TBD
  • D - Sauteed pork chops & baked organic spaghetti squash
  • B - Baked sweet potato (made night before)
  • L - Dinner leftovers
  • D - Sirloin Steak, organic baby spinach salad & organic baby tomatoes
  • B - Sliced heirloom tomatoes + TBD
  • L - Dinner leftovers
  • D - Cauli rice + protein TBD
  • B - TBD
  • L - Dining out with bestie
  • D - Baby Shower

  • Green Juice II: Organic beet tops, organic cucumber + fruit TBD
  • Green Juice III: Organic lacinato kale, organic cucumber, organic celery, lemon, honeydew melon
