Menu Plan Monday- Feb.4
Well, tomorrow (I’m posting this on Sunday night) I officially start my new diet. I’m allowing myself a few days of grace as I use up some stuff that I have on hand, since I just found out my diet details on Friday, but over the course of the week I will make the full transition. I will post the details of my diet and supplement regimen sometime soon, but the basics are: no yeast, sugar (of any sort, not even honey or molasses), eggs, wheat, barley, oats, vinegar, mushrooms, beef, citrus fruits, coffee/tea, tomato, peas, peanuts, chocolate, and no cow’s dairy of any sort (except butter, and goat’s milk is ok). It’ll be fun, right? 🙂
Here goes nothing:
Monday: Chicken and veggie pot pie (the pie crust has sweet potatoes in this- it’s really nice- I’ll have to post the recipe soon) with green salad
Tuesday: Meatloaf (Nourishing Traditions), baked squash (with butter and salt), and rice cooked in broth.
Wednesday: At a church event- I’m not sure how this will work diet-wise yet.
Thursday: Spicy halibut (from NT, except I’m using cod), quinoa, and broccoli with cheese (except mine will be plain, steamed)
Friday: Pasta (brown rice, not wheat), tomato sauce (sigh… my last tomatoes) with ground beef (sigh… my last beef dish), and salad (hmmm, looks like this will be a staple of my diet).
Saturday: Sausages (natural chicken with apple/gouda, and no nitrates, from Costco in WA), fried with chopped bell peppers, onions and potatoes. So easy and yummy!
Sunday: In the crockpot, Beezie’s Black Bean Soup, with raw veggie sticks and dip (hmm, haven’t thought about what kind of dairy-free dip I can eat yet, I’ll have to work on that one- any; ideas?).

Dairy-free dip…how about hummus?
Good luck with your new diet. 🙂
Your menu plan looks great.
Have a nice week!
I’d love the recipe for the sweet potato pie crust; I’ll keep checking back to see when you post it!
Best of luck with your new diet, it will be challenging but rewarding in the long run!
It’s refreshing to see a healthy menu plan. And I think people would be surprised that healthy food doesn’t take long to prepare.
Keep us updated on your diet.
Another vote for hummus here. 🙂 It’s quick and easy too! Good luck with your diet.
That’s an extensive list of restrictions.
How about mashing an avocado and stirring in a little salt and cilantro,too, if you like that?
Unless I missed something, it looks like corn tortillas would be OK and that means tortilla chips!
For the dip, I’d suggest hummus. Or, you could do a goat cheese with some italian spices in it. I like both of those options with cut up veggies.
I’m going to try the black bean soup recipe this week. Thanks for sharing great recipe ideas!
The hummus is a good idea. I also sometimes use an all natural balsamic basil vingrette for dip.
I have a couple of gluten free/sugar free cookbooks. I’ll look through them and see if they have good recipes for you. If they do, I’ll send you the names of the cookbooks (or some recipes if you want). Are you allowed to have stevia? It’s not really a sugar.
Those types of diets are definitely hard. I did dairy, wheat and soy free for eight months when my youngest was little in hopes of preventing the allergies that my middle child has. I like to say it worked as my youngest has no allergies but no one knows for sure with allergies if it really helps or if it is just genetic. I like to think that it was my dilligence that made all the difference 🙂
Good luck to you!
Thanks, you’re all so encouraging!
Hummus is a great idea. I love hummus. I won’t be able to use lemon juice in it, though, so it’ll taste a little different, I suppose. I also love avocado dips, but avocados are currently off limits too. So sad…
Wow, sounds like a TOUGH diet! Good luck with that, and blessings on your week!
