Breakfast – Pancakes
Right now there is a proliferation of pancakes that are gluten free. You can try to make things from scratch, but you don’t necessarily have to. A lot of companies are putting out these options and you simply have to add almond milk, eggs, and butter. Some call for more, but if you just have a good base, you will end up with a positive solution moving forward. There’s always subtle elements that you can use like vanilla extract, nutmeg, cinnamon, honey, and more. The goal is to get you a little comfort amidst your plan, and this is definitely worth looking into.
Lunch – Green Salad
Think of all things green here and you’ll have a nice lunch with a solid boost of protein. Start with spinach, and then build greener pastures. Mix spinach, lettuce, kale, and then add avocado, bell pepper, and you will definitely have a nice green build up. Toss together with a light vinaigrette and you’ll definitely enjoy what comes out. Add some shrimp if you’d like, as that may help you gain a nice taste profile as well.
Snack – Gluten Free Snack Bar
A blast from the past, this is a good way to add a bit of energy between meals. This is a simple thing to find now a days. Much like gluten free pancake mix, you can easily find a good snack bar that is not full of empty calories. Just remember, you have to look carefully at the ingredients. It’s easy to get lost in the shuffle of processed sugars and much more, so be careful overall.
Dinner – Steak, Beets, Kale
This is an easy dinner to go through. Marinade steak or simply season it lightly. If you focus on finding grass fed solutions, you will get a pure flavor from the meat itself. That should be grilled, and the main course. Give yourself 8 ounces this time, as a treat. For sides, make sure that you look into roasting some beets, and then adding some kale to the mix. A light kale salad with beets can give you a nice sweet profile that you can easily utilize as a base for your steak (steak salad) or a side salad alone. Beets are versatile, sweet, and can be a gem of nutritional composition.
The above are just a few ideas to take you through your Saturday, and on to your last day of the week. The sixth day should be simple, and allow you to explore more flavors.
