Menu Plan Monday - July 15

Monday, July 15, 2013



I sort of got out of the groove of making menu plans - and sticking with them - these past few weeks. Our son is still very ill with Henoch-Schonlein purpura and it has taken its toll on all of us. I have spent some time researching the disease and its connection with diet. As it is an inflammatory disease, eating foods that fight inflammation is a good idea. Some of these super foods include dark leafy green veggies (like kale, spinach, and Swiss chard), bright orange fruits and veggies (like oranges and carrots), and deep reds and purples (like blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and red bell peppers).

We bought a juicer and have begun blasting the cells with anti-inflammatory nutrients. Is it working? Too soon to tell. Ryan isn't too fond of the idea of drinking his vegetables, so we have to hide them under the guise of fruits. I made a cherry apple with carrot juice tonight and I think he likes it. Cherries fight inflammation too, just so you know.'

Here's the menu plan for the week:
