Nourishing Traditions is a wonderful book that
"recommends includ[ing] the consumption of unprocessed or minimally-processed foods including: traditional fats (animal fats, dairy fats, olive oil, and fish oils, among others), organic fruits and vegetables, raw dairy products, soured or lacto-fermented dairy and vegetables (such as sauerkraut), whole grains (soaked or soured to neutralize their phytic acid), and bone stocks."
[Ok, not really, that's sinful]
Here's what's on the menu this week:
- Steamed egg yolks [I crack the egg, removing the white (maybe save them for something later on that day, but usually not) place the egg yolk carfully into a collinder (or steaming basket would work too) and place in a pot with an inch of simmering water covered for about 5 mins. Allow to cool and add a little salt]
- Fruit or veggies steamed
Scrambled eggs w/sautéed veggies
Soaked Panckakes [SO good, we served them last week with Amish butter and raw, local honey and steamed fruits. It was very filling! We used the recipe right out of NT because I didn't really like most of the ones I found online]
- Salad w/pan fried fish [talapia, flounder, or salmon]
- Fish [the same mentioned above] with brown rice and steamed veggies
- Hummus plate
- Laver [nori]
- kale chips
- turnip chips
- sweet potato fries
Monday: Tortellini with black olives and artichokes
Tuesday: We're grillin at the Brownings this week if the weather holds up.
Wednesday: Sprouted Sloppy Lentils [a variation on this recipe] on soaked wheat buns
Thursday: Stir fry with brown rice
Friday: White bean soup
Saturday: Pizza [made my first soaked what thin pizza last week! Very good, even though I sorta ruined it, lol ]
Sunday: Angel Hair pasta with feta, cherry tomatoes and broccoli.
From cooking so much, two things have happened.
One: I got sick of cooking one night last week! HA!
Two: Not home cooked meals make me sick. We ordered Domino's [which I used to LOVE] and it made me...well, not good. Same with Bueno. I am doomed to eat my own cooking for the rest of my life. Crap. HAHA!
So, this is why I must insist that everything that comes out of my kitchen promots optimum health for my family :] I highly reccomend getting a copy of Nourishing Traditions to any one in charge of their family's health.
