'In 2013, two weeks of “clean eating” had all but gotten rid of my once crippling joint pain. Clean eating led to gluten-free
, which led to dairy-free
, which has now led me to a paleo diet. I’m the healthiest I’ve ever been! I’m eating foods that nourish my body and I’m able to enjoy an active and fulfilling life, without being limited by rheumatoid arthritis
So if you have already checked out my top three tips
for making a whole-foods diet work, next I’ll share with you a simple three-day menu plan based on my favorite meals. Breakfast and lunch is usually always the same for me (I swap out different veggies at breakfast and lunch, and vary my canned fish varieties) because that’s just what works for me. Take a look!
Notes regarding my snack:
- Breakfast: Green Eggs, mug of bone broth
- Lunch: Tuna & Rice Salad, with ½ a cubed and steamed sweet potato instead of rice (I substitute cucumber for the tomatoes now)
- Snack: half a can of tuna mixed with ¼ an avocado, served with veggie slices and a slice of banana bread
- Dinner: Tuesday Night Guac’ Salad
- If it’s a CrossFit day, I eat the tuna and veggies as my pre-workout snack, and my banana bread as my post-workout snack. If it’s not a CrossFit day, sometimes I won’t even have the banana bread, depending on how hungry I am.
- Some veggies that work especially well are carrots, kohlrabi, and cucumbers.
There you have it – that’s what an average three days of food looks like for me. And yes, the hubster eats what I eat. The only changes I make are to add nightshades to his breakfasts and lunches, and to make him white potatoes whenever I eat yuca or sweet potatoes, as he prefers them.
I hope you are inspired to meal plan and food prep after seeing my own method. Find what works for you, then do it!
