My typical food day varies on what's available. I try to eat locally and seasonal as much as possible, which means during the winter there is not as much available as in the glut of summer. I am also not actively remineralizing right now, so I don't do the blended salads anymore (gave away the blender trying to declutter the kitchen). During that period I was also doing grass juice, trying to be my own spring-grass-fed human lol. I grew out flats of wheat and rye on garden soil (important for getting soil minerals) and cut the bunches of grass and put it through the juicer along with some carrots. You could do the same in pots on the windowsill or if you don't have an auger-type juicer (which you need to juice grasses) then throw a lot of parsley into your blended salads which are high in minerals.
And sprouts! Sprouts are great for enzymes too. Put them on your salads.
Typical food day: I am currently avoiding dairy, and am low-grain. We don't eat any nuts as DD is allergic. DH and DD still consume dairy, and will have homemade probiotic yogurt (boiled non-homog OG milk cultured with Yogourmet starter for 24 hours) as a snack topped with raw honey during the day, and/or a bit of raw cheese.Breakfast
Baked potato topped with EVCO, sea salt, pepper, sauteed kale and onions, shredded raw carrot, chopped raw celery, chopped raw broccoli, nutritional yeast, and some sort of protein. Right now we have lots of dried homecured sausage from the pigs we raised last year. Otherwise, some scrambled or a fried pastured egg on top. The egg is really yummy if you don't cook the yolk all the way through, just warmed so you can get the runny vanilla-y yolk plus they are better for you uncooked (while the white is better cooked).
Speaking of eggs, I used to do smoothies back when I ate dairy and would put a raw egg yolk in it along with evco, clo, orange juice, a leaf of kale, some berries if I had any and raw probiotic yogurt. It was great for sneaking all that good stuff into DD.Lunch
: Soup made with bone broth, heavy on the veggies and sometimes with a bit of meat in it, sometimes not. My veggie soup is based on whatever we have available, so right now it's heavy in the root storage crops like rutabaga, kohlrabi, carrot, potato. I always start with sauteed onion, then deglaze with broth or wine, then add cubed veggies and broth and season to taste. If I have meat from cooking the bones I will add that. Sometimes some of the aforementioned sausage. Other times I will actually cook a hunk of meat in the form of pot roast, but always with loads of veggies to fill the pot up, not like a traditional pot roast that's heavy on the meat. Sometimes I have a bit of grain on the side, in the form of a little bread or some rice. Not very much, like a palmful.
A note on meat too: my consumption levels go up or down depending on what my body needs. Right now I'm a desk jockey so I don't eat too much but when I was really active and also when I was recovering from veganism I would inhale a disgusting amount (disgusting to my former vegan self) of red meat. Like a pound a day spaced out between the three meals. Now it's more like 1/4 lb or less. I also found that energetically the red meat was more intense and healing for my body, and that the beef/land mammal bone broth & meat was better for me and gave me more benefit than the fish or poultry broth/meat.Dinner
: Big salad (we heap our dinner bowls full) made with lettuce and any salad greens available like dandelion, arugula etc. Grated raw carrot and broccoli to top (in the summer we have cucumbers, tomatoes and other fun things like nasturtiums and herbs). Dress with nutritional yeast, some type of oil (we use bacon grease since we have it, you can use EVOO), raw apple cider vinegar, salt, pepper, raw honey and sometimes mustard. Sometimes if we are feeling fancy dinner will be a meat like fish along with sauteed green and some starch like a baked potato or squash, other times we'll just have a different type of veggie bone broth soup. Or we will make a stir fry with meat and veggies.
I've never measured how much veggies/meat I eat per day, but Garden of Eating Diet recommendations for meat are about the size of a pack of cards, or your palm size, then fill the plate with veggies. Summarizing their rec's, veggies should be 65-75% of the weight and volume of your meals/diet, with animal products 20-35%. They obviously lean towards a paleo approach. Visually, you take your palm-sized portion of meat and that fills 1/4 to 1/3 of the plate. Fill the remaining part of your plate with fresh veggies. If you include a high density carb like starchy vegs or whole grain, then choose a portion about the same size as your protein portion, then fill the rest of the plate with veggies. I don't agree with their low-fat approach so I won't bother quoting it. Use your discretion for that. For me personally, I eat the skin on my chicken and don't scrape every bit of fat off my broth. They also allow more fruit on their diet than I eat, I usually only have an apple a day at the most. My views on fruit is that they have been so bred to be sugar rich that they usually make me feel woozy if I eat too much.
And just for fun, here is a thread from 2 1/2 years ago when I ate a heck of a lot more grain, dairy and fruit (after I was actively remineralizing and before transitioning to a locally-grown low-grain diet): http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=181313
