My Super Simple Meal Plan for the GFCF Corn-Free Keto Diet has saved our lives so many times when it comes to having food we can actually eat. I love planning—or the idea of it, anyway. But implementing and sticking to plans . . . well, thank you, ADHD! I fall off the wagon so smoothly that I’m not sure I was ever on it or for how long. We have to keep things super simple in my family. Also, since I’m not the one making dinner each night (I do the batch cooking once a week for the dinners, and make the week’s salads for lunches, though), that means I have to depend on my family members to get the food on the table. If it’s not quick and easy for them to do, it’s not happening.
GFCF corn-free keto diet
Chalk it up to whatever you want. (Is it gluten intolerance/celiac, or is it glyphosate poisoning?) Chicken-and-egg it all you want. (Did the medical/neurological conditions cause the food intolerances, or did the food intolerances [toxic load] cause the conditions?)
In any case, it is clear that these foods are somehow connected to inflammation and other issues in these bodies. That is all that matters. You’re probably experiencing it, too, even if you’re not aware of it. There are some serious things wrong with the food supply in the US. Many governments around the world will not allow food products that are sold here to even enter their country. Perhaps they know something our government’s trying to keep from us.
Super Simple GFCF Keto Meal Plan
So here’s my Super Simple GFCF Corn-Free Keto Meal Plan. It’s designed to work with batch cooking, so if you’d like to use it that way, you can, but you don’t have to. If you’re a “prepare every meal right before you eat it” kind of person, you can do that, too.
For breakfasts, we just choose from the foods we have on hand. But I wrote out a plan for you in case you want more structure. For lunches, we always have a salad of some kind, sometimes a soup or a sandwich, or leftovers. Dinner is the meal that we do follow a set plan for.
Monday: Packaged frozen GFCF keto waffles and sugar-free syrup; bacon or sausage
Tuesday: Bacon, sausage, ham (Watch the brands, and read the labels every time, because manufacturers change ingredients without telling consumers!) Sometimes, we have the meat(s) with scrambled or fried eggs, and sometimes we have them in a breakfast bake (beat eggs, chop meats and vegetables, combine, and bake until fluffy).
Wednesday: Scrambled eggs
Thursday: GFCF corn-free muffins
Friday: Gluten-free toast with a teaspoon of peanut butter or avocado puree
Saturday: GFCF corn-free pancakes
Sunday: Omelets with meats and veggies as desired
Salad of some kind
Soup (always homemade)
Tuesday: Taco-ish dish (Mexican/Tex-Mex)
Thursday: Ethnic (Usually Italian or Chinese)
Sunday: Roast (pork, beef, chicken, or turkey)
Batch cooking GFCF corn-free keto foods saves hours every week, and I highly recommend it. If you’re not familiar with the concept or how to do it, check out this book (not for the gluten-laden recipes, but for the mindset and techniques required). Just click the image!
GFCF corn-free keto diet grocery shopping list
We buy meats such as pork (a roast and 5 lbs of bacon a week easily), and chicken (in addition to whole chickens or a bag of quarters, we get big packages of chicken breasts. I cook them all at the same time as soon as my husband brings them home from the store.)
Eggs (We get a 5-lb box every week or two.)
Fresh and frozen vegetables such as broccoli, brussels sprouts, spinach, pepper and onion mix
Salad ingredients you like (watch carbohydrate content so you don’t kick yourselves out of ketogenesis)
GFCF packaged substitute products if desired (We love several different flavors of Cado, an ice cream substitute made from avocados. We hate avocados and guacamole, but this stuff is heaven! Just watch the carbs to stay keto.)
Condiments that are GFCF, corn-free, and keto that you also like to eat
Coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil
Herbs and spices (read the labels)
