Menu Plan

So this weekend I decided to change my diet drastically. I’ve been suffering from sinus infections since moving to Florida two years ago, and even though working out and my improved diet has provided me many health benefits my sinuses are still messed up!

For the next three weeks I’m cutting out gluten and dairy to see if it helps. I’m doing a few other things as well, but I don’t want to share them until I’m finished, in case they totally fail! I’ll share them with you either way, but I’d rather wait until the end of the three weeks just to be safe.

What this means is if you see a meal that has gluten or dairy in it on the menu plan that means I’m either eating leftovers that night or eating a modified version of that meal.

For breakfast I’m eating eggs or oatmeal, but the kids will still have their normal yummy pancakes and waffles.

  1. Sounds like seasonal outdoor allergies in Florida. Allergies make tissues in nose/sinus cavities swell and infection in sinuses begin.

    Thank you for sharing your dietary and exercise changes in your recent series. It is encouraging to those of us trying to make many of the same changes. Your comment today about sinus infections made me think of a wonderful presentation I heard this spring at our state home school conference by Dianne Craft. I don’t know whether or not you have heard of her but she has a wealth of wonderful info about our gut health (probiotics, good yeast & bacteria vs. bad yeast & bacteria). She mentioned that sinus infections (especially chronic) can often be attributed to an overabundance of bad bacteria/yeast in the gut. She has many dietary suggestions for how to remedy this imbalance, and this can affect many, many areas of life and health. I highly recommend that you check out her info as you may find some things that you can do to further pinpoint the cause of your sinus problems. Good luck!
