Glyphosate! Bromine! Allergies! Intolerance! Weight gain! Candida! Diabetes! Heart disease!
We’ve all heard the bad press surrounding refined grains.
But how do we remove this much-loved staple from our diet?
Does this meal plan sound familiar at all?
Breakfast: toast, or a pancake, or cereal, or a muffin
→ all refined grain! :o
Lunch: sandwich, a cookie
→ refined grain!! :o
Dinner: pasta, buns, pizza, a pie
→ again, refined grain!!! :o
What would we even replace all these items with??
Here are a few ideas to start with:
Breakfast: a high protein, healthy fat green smoothie, or eggs & veggies & beans, or oatmeal with seeds & nuts
Lunch: a salad containing a healthy protein & fat source
Dinner: divide your plate with majority veggies (not potatoes), a whole grain, and a good protein source, using healthy oils for cooking
Healthy snack options: fruit, hummus & veggies, dried fruit-nut-seed mix, whole grain homemade granola bars
Remember that refined grain and sugars are addictive so be ready for intense cravings and even withdrawal symptoms when you cut them out!
I’ll do it with you! ☺
