I met a really nice woman (Ms. M) this past week who is a subscriber of RawFoodMealPlanner.com and she requested an anti-inflammatory meal plan. Thank you for the inspiration this week Ms M. That’s what this week is all about: high fiber, low glycemic and anti-inflammatory fruits. Vegetables are already high fiber and low glycemic so we can really go crazy there. There are a lot of options from my research so we will have fun with it this week.
I tend to go heavy on bananas in my smoothies for the calories, the creamy texture it gives my smoothies, the natural sweetness it lends to the drinks, and because it keeps me feeling satisfied longer. Since only 1 banana can be used to keep things low glycemic, we will use avocados in the smoothies this week for the same benefits we get with banana with the exception of the added sweetness.
My husband has 3 amazing juicing recipes to combat inflammation in his book 75 Powerful Therapeutic Juices for Specific Health Conditions so we will be doing some juicing this week. Juicing, in my opinion, is a quick way to combat many health ailments because you can do it daily and the nutrients go straight to the blood stream. Very little digestion needed really.
Leave a comment below this week’s plan and let me know if you would like a special meal plan.

Day’s Workout: I love doing yoga with my girl Candice Wu. Her yoga classes are the most relaxing and life changing for me. She utilizes aromatherapy and touch to help you get the most out of your poses. She taught me how to breathe. I use the practice regularly and it is an outer body experience for me. I can feel my pineal gland opening. It is awesome. Check out her yoga classes here.
