Rotation Diet Menu

So this is the first full week of us following a rotation diet, mostly for DS. Also hoping for residual benefit's for the rest of as well. For some reason I have had some dairy issues ever since having the twins. The point is that this should clear up anything in the rest of us that we didn't know was an issue yet. In a nut shell the theory is that if you eat to much of something it will build up inside of you and you become allergic to it. Think antibiotics and how your body can become immune to any benefits from it if you take it all the time. Same with say wheat or peanuts. Eat it all the time and it stops being a healthy food. So, once every four to eight weeks is better. Example: today is beef, banana, and amaranth (grain) day. Again, check out the book in my Amazon recommendations. Here is a look at our menu for the first four days:

Day 1 -
Breakfast: Cooked Amaranth (porridge) and banana
Lunch: Pepper and beef sandwich with carrot sticks
Dinner: Spaghetti squash and beef casserole with cucumber salad (oil & vinegar) and banana cake (stevia is only sweetener used and fruit is always used in baking in place of butter)

Day 2 -
Breakfast: Buckwheat pancakes and apple
Lunch: Creamed chicken sandwich with spinach apple salad
Dinner: Parsley breaded Fish, sauteed spinach, broccoli cauliflower salad (apple pie - optional, but we are skipping this)

Day 3 -
Breakfast: Cooked quinoa cereal w/ blueberries
Lunch: Blackeye Pea soup w/home made wheat thin crackers (made this before and kids love them!) and kiwi
Dinner: Chicken potato casserole, sauteed eggplant, tossed salad (carob chip bars - optional, we are skipping this. I need to find some carob chips first! LOL)

Day 4 -
Breakfast: Blackberry muffins and grapefruit
Lunch: Salmon puffs, salad and corn cakes
Dinner: Cabbage rolls, corn bread and strawberries

Hope this gives ya all a better idea what we are eating and how we are working towards an allergy free/sugar free diet. Any questions, just ask.

Blessings, Beth Ann
