It occurred to me today that there are now quite a few of us following the TGF diet. I thought it might be an idea if we all wrote down a quick example day’s menu so others can draw some inspiration when starting out or just needing some ideas.
We all have our individual strategies – I hear a lot of them but no-one else does and I haven’t time always to pass them on. Do you think we could all share some menu ideas, please? If you can, please use the comment box, or email to me and I will list them for you. I think they would be really useful and I look forward to some new ideas myself! If no time for a whole menu, please give us a tip or a favourite easy meal idea.
Thanks in advance from everyone.
Here’s a quick daily version from me to start us off:
Breakfast is a bowl of fresh fruit (chopped apple, pear and berries), with mixed nuts, seeds and dried fruit and a dash of non citric acid/ascorbic acid juice – usually pineapple from Sainsbury’s with a muffin if I have made some. Sometimes just the muffin with some honey and berries and the juice.
Snacks – nuts, seeds and fresh fruit if I haven’t had them for breakfast, otherwise a couple of whole carrots and hummus dipped whilst standing near the fridge often (naughty me!)
Lunch is what I may have had in a sandwich without the sandwich – so tinned or wild-caught salmon with mayo (Stokes) or mashed avocado, a few prawns, some cooked beef strips etc on a plate with salad leaves, cherry tomatoes etc or I take a couple of leaves off a little gem or iceberg lettuce and use that as a wrap. Otherwise, left overs from the night before. Sometimes an omelette or 2 boiled eggs
Snack: another muffin, slice of muesli bread, some nuts and fruit maybe or a boiled egg eaten like an apple
When working on clinic days, snack at about 6pm on Sainsbury’s or M&S vegetable crisps (something shop-bought – yay!)
Tea: grass fed beef, lamb or sea fish eg Sainsbury’s frozen seabass/sea trout/line-caught cod and lots of veggies either stir-fried in olive oil with some spices, roasted with herbs and seasalt or just steamed and plonked.
Supper: – if hungry, another snack of the same ilk as above or some crumble or baked fruit with honey if I have made some – usually I make a massive one and have that for breakfast too!
OK – what do you do?
