Here is a sample week. To be real, it’s a bit ambitious as I duplicate meals more often than this, but each of these are in the rotation from week to week. I have included links to specialty ingredients and recipes so click on over.Shoutout to my dear friend and an incredible support to me and my family, Cancer Chef Kate. After working for years through her own dietary goals from Whole30, to juice cleanses to Paleo & Keto lifestyles, Kate was prepared to step in and help me navigate my huge lifestyle change.
She has not only cooked and delivered food weekly throughout my entire chemo process, but she also babysits my daughter and keeps me alive with her insanely delicious bone broth and careful attention to Cancer Fighting Foods.
I love you Kate.
Here is my favorite tip that I learned from a book I read, THE MOON JUICE COOKBOOK…
If you create a beautiful space for your daily foods, teas, and supplements then you are more likely to enjoy the habit you are creating for yourself in this lifestyle change. I did that by purchasing a few key items to set out on my kitchen shelves.
Now I am reminded daily, in an aesthetically pleasing way, that these are the foods to snack on or toss into my most recent meal pan.
What’s in the jars?
- Nutritional Yeast
- Chia Seeds
- Ground Flax Seed
- Rasa Adaptogenic Coffee Alternative
- Sugar Free Cacao Chips
- Brazil Nuts
- Sprouted Sunflower Seeds
- Dried Mulberries (an excellent source of resveratrol)
