Each Sunday, I’ll use Playdates and Prosecco to record our dinner plans for the week, including anything made during Sunday prep. I’ll link any relevant recipes and include some of my favorite products/staples in case you want to use ’em!
If you read our meal plans each week, you probably assume that we eat pretty healthy. True… sort of. Yes, I cook the healthy meals we plan during the week. Yes, I buy mainly organic, locally-sourced foods. And yes, we tend to go ham on the weekends. Like, “last weekend I ate pizza for lunch and a different pizza for dinner one day” ham. While I’m a huge proponent of balance, I feel like I need a little reset to get me back on the right track. This week I’m starting a move towards eating more raw foods to try to incorporate a higher amount of fruit and veggies into our daily routine. I’ve been having a blast searching and saving on Pinterest– here’s some of my favorites!
Here’s what we’re working with:
Read this article from Self outlining the pros and cons of eating a raw food diet.
A lot of what I have been reading focuses on how choosing a raw, vegan diet helps you to maintain more health-conscious choices, avoid processed foods, and increase nutrient density. Sounds pretty beneficial to me! Plus, with a focus on a raw diet, we’ll be increasing our intake of fiber and beneficial enzymes, which will be great for our gut health.
Fresh veggies cut and prepped for easy snacking/salad toppings
Large homemade salads, topped with pre-cut veggies, fruit, and nuts
Homemade, raw dressing (I made something very similar to this one)
Raw, vegan brownies for a little treat 🙂
I’ve linked recipes I plan to follow or at least use as a guide, so feel free to steal ’em!
