My weeks are SO much more enjoyable when I create a dinner plan. And, I can definitely state this as a fact because I’ve been a HUGE slacker in this department for the past couple months and my diet has suffered from extreme lack of variety and (I’ll admit it) just plain weird food pairings because of it! But….I’m back on track this week! Of course, I can’t make any promises come Monday! LOL! (So, how about you? Do you plot out your strategy for the week…or just fly by the seat of your pants??)
Here’s an example of what we ate one particular day in our “REAL FOOD” household.
For more great recipes from us, check out our book “Eating Additive-Free”!
- Egg (fried in coconut oil and sprinkled with salt/pepper)
- Chipotle Sweet Potatoes
- Smoothie made with kale (greens), freshly squeezed OJ, frozen strawberries, banana, pineapple (looks gross, but it’s YUMMY – can’t even taste the kale!)
- Pecan Pie LaraBar
- Southwest Rice Bowl – Before we changed our diet 4 1/2 years ago, I used to LOVE going out to eat at PepperJax Grill and ordering their Chicken Rice Bowl. So I created this recipe to recreate those flavors at home: Chicken, onions, brown rice, cilantro, lime juice, tomatoes, green onions, avocado, etc. Yum!!
- Homemade gluten-free granola bars (made with pure cocoa nibs!)

Today is October 29, 2011. By reader request, I logged all of my food today so I can show you an example of the foods I might eat in a typical day as part of my “additive-free,” REAL FOODS lifestyle. Today was a little unusual because we ate a really late breakfast and I took an afternoon nap; so this is a bit less food than I eat in an average day, I suppose. No worries, I’ll blog about other days in the future, too, to give you a better idea 🙂 (Click any pictures to enlarge!)
Breakfast: Eggs fried in coconut oil; sweet potatoes sauteed in coconut oil and seasoned with Chipotle powder and salt; pineapple
Lunch: Salad with grilled chicken breast, red peppers and homemade Italian Dressing
