Through this process of figuring out what is or isn't affecting us not being able to get pregnant, we have seen a dozen or so doctors. One thing that they always throw out there but never really investigate is the possibilities of PCOS and pre-diabetes. Now, I would say I am of 'average' stature when it comes to weight.. of course I'm taller than average at 5' 10" but with my family history and all that wonderful stuff doctors always give me a parting...avoid refined carbs, avoid dairy, avoid soy, avoid yadda yadda yadda...
SO! In attempts to avoid the plague that is apparently eating in America we are cutting out gluten, soy (didn't really eat much to begin with..that we know of..) and refined carbohydrates. I'm still pushing the line on a lot of high glycemic index foods...but one step at a time I guess.
With all of that being said, here is our first weeks menu:
Day one: Quinoa minestrone
Day two: Black bean tacos
Day three: mixed green salad with hard boiled eggs
Day four: veggie burgers in lettuce wraps
Day five: Brown rice "pizza" bake
Day six: vegan sushi
Day seven: Butternut squash ravioli
I'll let you know next week how it all goes!
