I love menu planning! I love going through my recipe list and finding new things to try each week. Now I am trying to learn how to eat within my Warrior genotype diet, which is an offshoot of the blood type diet as presented by Dr. Peter D’Adamo. Warriors generally have Type A blood. It’s similar to a mostly vegetarian macrobiotic diet. Giving up certain foods is torture (beef! bacon! tomatoes! potatoes! [most] CHEESE!) Even though I’m not 100% compliant yet I can already notice a difference in my joints and some bloating which I didn’t even know I had!
My menu plans are always more of a guideline than a hard-and-fast plan, so some things might not get made until days later than I post here. Weekends are usually a free-for-all. The dinners I make are also my lunches for the next day or two (or three or four).
MONDAY: Turkey with Ginger and Green Onion Salt Dip – the recipe calls for chicken but that’s an avoid for a warrior.
TUESDAY: White Bean and Escarole Soup
WEDNESDAY: Eating out before going to Drag Queen Bingo!
THURSDAY: Broccoli Rabe with Garlic and Golden Raisins (I’ll add tofu to make it a main dish)
FRIDAY: Lime Fish Tacos – I’ll be using red snapper and substituting ghee for the butter. Wegmans carries brown rice tortillas and I’ll use kefir instead of sour cream.
