Menu Plan Monday - July 23

Happy Monday! I have been researching the vegetarian and vegan diets more and more and have been pleased with what I've found. In my own experience, I have been leaning more toward a vegan diet. The Hallelujah Diet has come the closest to the one in which I find the most "comfort level." I do not, however, strictly adhere to it. I have been gluten-free for a little over two years. THANK THE LORD that I found out what was destroying my digestive system before I developed cancer or another issue. When I was in Indiana a couple of weeks ago, I innocently ate what I thought was eggs at a restaurant. Okay, so eggs are not vegan. Nothing on the breakfast menu was gluten-free except for some condiments and coffee. I thought I was safe with eggs. I found out, too late, that the eggs were reconstituted powdered eggs and contained gluten. I think it is safe to say that I can never go back to eating even the tiniest amount of gluten again!

My menu this week includes some vegan foods and some gluten-free items. Of course, the meat is on there for my meat eating hubby and kids. A * indicates gluten-free. A ** indicates both gluten-free and vegan.


*Pot Roast with Potatoes in the Crock Pot

Hello, I'm stopping by from Organizing Junkie today.
Isn't it amazing how many conditions can be treated or reduced by diet? I suffer from severe chronic pain so I have reduced my intake of processed foods and increased foods with anti-inflammation benefits since I stopped taking pain medication. Besides losing weight I do feel more focused and have more endurance to deal with my pain.
You have some wonderful meals planned this week.
The humidity has arrived in Las Vegas. It has me wishing for our dry hot days.
Enjoy your week!
