I have my weekend menu planned and will do some shopping this evening.
Saturday Breakfast: Mediclear smoothie with rice milk and mixed frozen berries (Trader Joe’s has the best price on these) AND one nitrite-free Turkey sausage (again, Trader Joe’s)
Mid-morning Snack: 1 banana
Lunch: mixed vegetable and romaine salad with olive oil/ balsamic vinagrette topped with grilled chicken breast.  (Make vinagrette by mixing 3:1 oil : balsamic vinegar, add finely minced garlic, salt and pepper to taste.)
Mid-afternoon snack: 1 handful soaked and dried almonds (see previous post for soaking and drying, and Trader Joe’s is a great place to get raw nuts)
Dinner: Mediclear in organic apple juice diluted by half with water.  AND oven roasted lamb chop w/ cashew gravy (listed on handout) AND roasted carrots, onions, parsnips AND sauteed kale
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Cut the carrots, onion, and parsnips up into approximately one-inch cubes/slices. Toss them in a bowl with the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Transfer to a sheet pan in 1 layer and roast in the oven for 20 minutes, until browned and tender.  Toss the vegetables with minced dill or parsley, season to taste, and serve.
Remove roasted vegetables, turn oven up to 500.  Lightly rub some herbs on the lamb chops and season with salt and pepper. In a large skillet over high heat add the olive oil and sear the lamb chops on one side. Turn it over and roast it in the oven at 500 degrees for a few minutes until medium rare. Remove to warm plates.
Late night snack: 2 rice cakes with nut butter AND herbal tea
Sunday Breakfast: Mediclear smoothie AND Rice and Shine cereal cooked with walnuts and frozen berries.
Mid-morning snack: 2 apricots
Lunch: Beet salad AND Quinoa pilaf AND Lamb chop (from last night’s dinner)
MId-afternoon snack: Mediclear smoothie
Dinner: Black bean soup AND Brown rice AND Salad (mixed greens, cucumbers, carrots, onion) with balsamic vinagrette.
I’m off to do some shopping now and will get some almonds into some salt water to soak overnight so I can heat them tomorrow morning for a snack throughout the day.
