Spring cleaning your diet.

I am  trying to be better about planning ahead for our meals. It helps us eat more fruits and vegetables, whole grains, keeps my husband and I on track and eating healthy, and it gets me out of my kitchen rutt. It also helps me with the grocery shopping as well. So here are some menu ideas for next week.

Grilled Lemon Chicken (made with boneless skinless chicken breast on the grill)
Cannellini beans with sage and garlic
Greens with mustard vinaigrette
Turkey meatballs with whole wheat spaghetti
Bitter greens from the garden with blood orange vinaigrette, pine nuts and dried cherries

Turkey Tacos
with sprouted corn tortillas, lettuce, refried black Beans, and peppers

Tuscan Bean Soup with Bitter Greens (slow cooker recipe)
Curly Endive Salad with mustard vinaigrette, Parmesan

Beef Curry with Toasted Spices
brown basmati Rice

Other meals -


Plain Greek yogurt with a drizzle of agave nectar
with granola and blackberries

Ezekiel toast spread with almond butter and fresh pears

Bobs mill organic oat bran hot cereal with blueberries and cinnamon

Frozen banana and berry smoothie


Turkey sandwich on toasted Ezekiel bread with greens and mustard

leftover soup

Tuna and cannellini bean salad on greens

Homemade Vegetable Sushi


Apples with almond butter and Cinnamon

Hummus with baby carrots snap peas and cucumber

Spiced Nuts and Seeds

Banana, Berry, and Buttermilk Popsicles

Did you know?
Sprouted grains found in Ezekiel bread and other sprouted grain bread
produces vitamin C and increases vitamin B content, especially B2, B5, and B6
neutralizes phytic acid, which inhibits the absorption of calcium, magnesium, iron, copper and zinc
neutralizes enzyme inhibitors the at would harm beneficial enzymes in the GI tract
makes complex sugars more digestible
inactivates aflatoxins (carcinogens)

Most bread is not made of sprouted grains because modern farming techniques don’t allow for germination to take place before the grain is harvested.

 I hope this gives you some healthy inspiration for your weekday meals
