Week 1 Menu

I'm still working on the food shopping list with brand recommendations and some rationale as to why you're consuming so much meat and butter.

If this menu looks a daunting, don't worry. We use some of the same base ingredients to make the preparing process easier; plus, none of them take longer than 30 minutes to prepare. And we're into improvising, right? Change the order of the meals, only cook half of them, but double the recipes, whatever works. Remember, we're implementing small changes, gradually. So this week, focus on cutting out sugar and do your best with the rest. One of the most important additions to your weekly food routine should be stocks! Check out the post below on why stocks rock!

I'll be posting a tutorial on sugar soon, and a list of food/beverages you may want to scrap if you're going sugar-free, so check back frequently!

  1. I just found this blog and am excited to walk through it! Thank you so much for doing this. I just bought Nourishing Traditions and was a bit overwhelmed- but this is making the switch seem much more do-able. Thanks for keeping the blog up, even though the 10 weeks are over!
