Memorial Day menu plan

I want to remind everyone that we are doing the 4 day rotation diet, for allergy free and sugar free eating. We use the book by Mary Yoder. Since it is a 4 day rotation, we get almost two rotations in a week and they fall on odd days. For instance today is day two in the week 4 rotation and come Thursday we will start day 1, week 5 rotation. With that said, here is a look at what we are eating this week:
Week 4/day 2 - Monday: B~ Buckwheat Pancakes and fresh pineapple
L~ Lentil burgers and potato salad
D~ Crock pot sirloin and vegetable soup with cornbread
day 3 - Tuesday: B~ Puffed rice cereal and blue berries
L~ Chicken salad and watermelon with celery sticks and cashew butter
D~ Chicken stuffed zucchini w/baked potato and carob cake
day 4 - Wednesday: B~ Fried mush with fresh oranges
L~ Barley cabbage soup w/ millet cake
D~ Cabbage rice and beef casserole w/ salad and short bread cookies
Week 5/day 1 - Thursday: B~ Cooked amaranth porridge and mixed berries
L~ Bean patties and chili non-queso sauce w/tortilla chips (I make my own faux cheeze)
D~ Golden chicken with cucumber salad and pumpkin pie in an oatmeal crust
day 2 - Friday: B~ Cooked pollenta and whole grain toast
L~ spinach nuggets with sweet potato fries
D~ Pigs in a home made blanket with veggie sticks and baked donuts
day 3 - Saturday: B~ Blueberry muffins with fresh fruit juice
L~ Tuna potato casserole and fig bars
D~ Baked fish with pea soup and spelt crackers
day 4 - Sunday: B~ Cooked barley cereal with blackberries
L~ Grilled faux cheeze with baked fries
D~ Twins birthday party: Grilled turkey dogs and burgers, veggie tray with faux cheeze dip, baked beans, home made lemonade, cake & ice cream
If you have any questions about our menu, the rotation diet or making healthy dairy free cheeze products, just drop me a comment. For more great menu ideas visit
Here is the recipe I promised yesterday:
Home made rice milk
3 cups water
1 cup cooked rice (brown)
2 TBSP. olive oil
1/2 tsp. liquid stevia
1 tsp. vanilla (optional)
1/4 tsp. salt
Place in blender or Vita-Mix and process until blended. Strain through a fine strainer. May save pulp for fiber in other recipes such as soups.
Carob Rice Milk
To 1 cup rice milk, add:
1 1/2 tsp. carob powder or to taste
1/4 tsp. stevia
Hope this helps : )
Blessings, Beth Ann
