It’s been a crazy day so this is going to be a quick post! 😀

printable menu plan

Meatless Monday:

Raw Zucchini Pasta in a Vegan Curry Cream Sauce, Fresh Tomato, Cucumber and Watermelon Slices


Grilled Chicken, Bell Pepper Salad and Creamy Cucumber Salad


Grilled Filet Mignon with a Red Wine Balsamic Reduction (I will use coconut oil instead of butter to make it dairy-free), Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Green Bean Salad


Smoked Salmon with Lemon-Caper Sauce (I’ll use my smoker and just season the salmon with salt and pepper, no sugar), Grilled Summer Squash, Green Salad


Chicken on a Stick (I’m going to make the marinade in my Vitamix using coconut oil instead of canola, Braggs Liquid Aminos instead of the soy sauce – use Coconut Aminos for soy allergies –  and 2 soaked whole dates instead of the honey), Green Salad and Grilled Pineapple Sticks.


Kickin’ Chicken Soup (recipe to come) and Green Salad


Bacon, Mayo and Tomato Sandwiches (sans the bread for me: think garden fresh beefsteak tomato slices with crumbled bacon and a mayo dressing….I’ll be sure to take a photo, it’s really quite delicious!), Oven Baked French Fries with Corn-Free Ketchup


  1. Yummmmy, Heidi girl! I love how you tell how you are going to adapt recipes to meet your dairy-free, soy-free, etc. needs. It shows folks it's not hard at all to make those changes. 🙂



    • Thanks Shirley! I refuse to be bound to specialty cookbooks for the rest of my life (and I really don't have room for anymore in my house, LOL!). Figuring out how to make appropriate substitutions is the key to freedom and happiness in this lifestyle (well, in my opinion anyway). It has taken me a long time (and a lot of trial and error) to feel comfortable making substitutions on a whim so hopefully, I can help someone else get there a little faster than I did. 😀

      Just 65 days till I get to see you again, woo-hoo!


  2. Thanks for mentioning my Bell Pepper Salad!
