Our New Diet: Eating Superfoods!

by Natasha on February 13, 2012

My husband and I have decided to try to eliminate more carbs in our diet and stick to fresh superfoods. We certainly aren’t going extreme but it will be change from the way we’ve been eating. We are hoping our bodies thank us for eating this way!

I went out shopping today to purchase our much needed protein, fruit, and vegetable items. My fridge is overflowing! I might have bought too much:-)  It seems like it’s going to be more expensive now but I’m hoping to be able to continue to stick to our $350 a month budget although it might not happen this month.

This menu is from Monday to Sunday for a family of 2 adults and four boys ranging in ages 8 to 1. Most of the dinner meals I haven’t tried before so if they are successful I’ll be sharing the recipe with you.  If you have any low-carb meal suggestions I’d love for you to comment below!
