Fuhrman’s Menu


Many of you know the love affair I have with Dr. Joel Fuhrman.  This week I want to try and stick to one of his menu plans.  Of course, minor adjustments may be made due to not finding ingredients (fig preserves?), cost, and time!  But I’ll do my best.

Wouldn’t it be awesome if I started making menu plans with photo’s!  Trust me, Its something I want to do! Maybe when this semester is over. I’m a bit nervous about Bio Chemistry!!

This menu looks much better as a pdf. I used the wrong computer to make it, so this display isn’t very appealing.

Breakfast Lunch Snack Dinner
Monday Cinnamon Fruit Oatmeal/ OJ Pita with veggies and Russian fig dressing and strawberries Poached pears with raspberry sauce or fresh fruit Green salad, brown rice, sweet potato stew
Tuesday Fruit and berries with plain or vanilla non-fat yogurt/ pomegranate juice Turkey sandwich, whole wheat bread, sunflower seeds, grapes or melon Wild apple crunch or fresh fruit Pasta with roasted veggies, hummus, raw veggies
Wednesday Grapefruit Whole grain toast with 100% fruit spread Orange sesame tossed salad, fast black bean soup kiwi Very berry ice cream Turkey spinach burger, sunshine slaw, pita chips
Thursday Whole grain cereal with milk or yogurt blueberries Hummus on whole grain bread, salad with balsamic vinaigrette, apple Mango Riesling compote or fresh fruit Tomato bean barley soup, romaine, spinach, watercress salad with fruit and nuts
Friday Blueberry orange smoothie Raw veggies, dressing, Tomato bean barley soup, pear Jenna’s peach freeze or fresh fruit Mixed greens with chopped apples, Dijon chicken Baked potato fries Creamed kale

I made a perfect loaf of bread this weekend.  I have made this recipe three times now, and by far, this is the best loaf of them all.

Awesome menu plan! Which book is this menu plan from? I have his Eat to Live book and I think the meals are different. Did you get this menu online or in one of his books?

Good luck with biochem! It’s not my specialty, but biochem is SO interesting. I think that you’ll really dig it and will see ties into nutrition everywhere!
