This 14 day real food meal plan includes plenty of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean meats. Eating a real foods diet focuses on eating unprocessed foods that are as close to how nature made them. This week’s real food meal plan is a special one because it includes meat free dinners for the Lenten season.
Lent is a period of fasting, moderation, and self-denial traditionally observed by Catholics and some Protestants. It begins with Ash Wednesday and ends with Easter Sunday. During Lent, participants fast or give up a particular food or habit. I grew up giving up red meat on Fridays during Lent. I continue to refrain from red meat during this time. This special Lenten meal plan includes meatless dinners on Fridays and quick and easy weeknight meals for the rest of the week. If you aren’t Catholic or Protestant, you can still enjoy these red meat free dinners.
In the past, my meal plans have been weekly. But it’s been sooo crazy around here with the weather fluctuating between warm and frigid, colds, etc. that it’s really thrown my schedule off. Have you ever had a week like that? So we are trying a 14 day meal plan for a bit. Let me know how you like this versus the previous 7 day plans.
