Our Healthy Diet Plan – What we are doing

I have gotten so many questions about our diet and what we are doing and decided to give Heathly Diet Menu Recipeyou our diet here.  You can ask questions in the comment section below.

Remember: We went to this extreme for my kids who have food allergies – just discovered by a special type of food testing.  The benefits have been surprising.  My son’s headaches have been reduced; my daughter’s acne is disappearing; I have lost weight and my sinuses are clearer.

Disclaimer: I am not a nutritionist or play one on TV. I have no medical background. I am just sharing what we are doing and do not claim that you will have the same results.

If you suspect food allergies, give this a try for at least 4 weeks and then add a potential allergic food to see how you react.

Here are the major foods we are off:

  • Gluten free
  • Soy free
  • Dairy free
  • Peanut free
  • MSG free

Here are the other foods we are off:

  • Tomatoes  (Doug and I are having tomatoes on salads)
  • Sugar

Here is the recommendation of our nutritionist:

Every meal have one serving of protein and two servings of vegetables.
The fresh vegetables are best; slightly steamed are second; frozen third in value.
Drink water – take your weight and divide by 2 and that is the number of ounces of water you should drink each day.
Carbohydrates – small serving 1-2 times a day
NOTE: Serving size: roughly what fits in the palm of your hand

What we do eat:

Breakfast: Scrambled eggs or left overs from dinner
Lunch: large salad with protein (nuts or meat)
Dinner: Meat, 2 vegetables and a carb (brown rice or quinoa)
Snack: Nuts, fruit or veggies
Treat: muffins or pancakes made with special baking mix (Pamela’s —>)
(1-3 times a week/not every day)

Proteins: chicken, turkey, fish, beef, lamb, eggs
Vegetables: all
Fruits: pineapple, berries, apples, pears
Sweeteners: Xylitol, Truvia
Carbohydrates: brown rice, Quinoa

    Hi, I just came across your facebook page and then linked this this page, and I was wondering on FB you have your link stating you are corn free as well, are you indeed corn free (which isn’t listed above)? I ask because I am corn free as well as the others listed above and was glad to find this page hoping for some recipes.

      Paula, We were corn free for about a year. The best way to keep corn free is to make everything yourself. Too many processed foods have ingredients we are trying to avoid.
