Whole foods diet?

Do any of you do a whole foods diet?

This is what we are wanting to do, and I'm so not good with coming up with ideas for meals. I need good ideas that my kiddos will like. They love fruits and veggies, it's the meat they get bored with.

Today we're having baked salmon and smoothies.

My actions do not just affect my life, but also the lives of those that depend on me. Therefore, I choose to make good decisions, ones that will have a positive impact on the lives I've been given to raise up.

be more specific with what sort of foods you are looking for or looking to eliminate from your diet.

Dairy, eggs, anything with gluten, artificial flavoring/colors, anything processed really. We'll eat ground beef, which is technically processed, but I don't want to eat anything processed. Mostly fruits and veggies, with some meats thrown in for good measure.

We will occasionally bake things - muffins, cookies, etc. But I will use coconut flour, almond meal, coconut milk, etc.

oh you threw me on the eggs and dairy. lol. there is a really good "crockpot rotisserie chicken" recipe on 100 days of real food (it's a pretty good blog, but her site isn't working today).


and not to sound like a dumbass, but how is ground beef "processed" food. It is literally just ground up cuts of meat (we order from a local farmer, so I realize it's not 100 different cow's parts all ground up together)

It really just depends on where you get it. It isn't reeeeeeeeally processed, but they add things to it if you buy from a regular grocer, walmart, etc. We buy from a local farmer as well... well, she's a two hour drive from us, but local all the same.

Here's a bump for you. Our diet is mainly whole foods but I don't put that much thought in to is. A grilled piece of chicken with steamed veggies is a staple around here.

Have you watched Forks over Knives? It's on Netflix. Google Dr. T. Colin Campbell, that may shoot you in the direction you seek.

We juice, keep our animal product consumption low and eat tons of fresh organic fruits/veggies.

Yeah, my kids and husband are getting sick of that.

I want to juice, but DH doesn't like it. He says there's so much that goes to waste when we do that. He wants to keep the skins, not discard them.

I make kefir sometimes.  And we get grass fed chicken eggs from a friend. I also make my own chicken and beef stock sometimes.
