try putting together a healthy menu for a week for gluten free eaters - I sure could use some help with meals that are healthy and a plan to lose pounds

Great idea! I'll share this with my personal training clients! I think this is a tremendous way to jump start people with eating healthy.

I'm very impressed about the quality of information here - stumbled upon the website by chance and I'm so thankful. I haven't yet had it in the budget to take a trip to the local store, but I plan to very soon. As for the numerous comments about meat, I have a question. What's wrong with a vegetarian menu? I've found so many sites with menus for carnivores but very few for those homo sapians who don't eat meat. I'm 48 and have been a vegetarian since the age of 15, so if you ask me, my vote is that I'm ecstatic to find one WITHOUT meat. Just sayin'. Thanks for making it easier to grow strong and healthy, Kari

Any chance you'll have another week planned? This meal plan was amazing; it lasted two weeks for us, with an additional smaller trip to the store in between weeks. It completely changed the way we eat, and it helped *tremendously* to have the whole week planned. I'm a full-time student, my husband works full time and we have a 2 year old, so planning something as good as what you did, just isn't practical for me. PLEASE tell me you'll be providing another weekly plan w/grocery list. Using things from the first list would be so great, like the barley miso. Thank you!

Great plan—minimizing meat consumption seems to be the healthiest, accrording to researchers such as authors of The Blue Zones and The China Study. It helps to have someone else do the planning, so I appreciate the lists. Personally I prefer seasonal produce, but it won't kill me to eat an imported cucumber right now. My goal is to kick-start my health this week, and then make adjustments down the line. My only complaint is that several of the recipes seem a little bland. The rice bowl, for instance, I'm thinking will probably need something else (wasabi?) and I'm not even going to bother with that pasta one (where's the seasoning?) And the oatmeal squares didn't thrill me, but I'll eat them because they're healthy. I'd like to hear what others think about the recipes, especially what adjustments they made to make them more palatable. I know it's all trial and error based on personal taste, but it would be helpful to put our minds together on this. Is there a related discussion forum? Thanks and keep up the great work! :)

this is great but what about families?! I LOVE whole foods but I notice you cater to millenials who are single or have just a significant other. I am a millenial with 5 children. I know I have a lot of kids but many other families love whole foods too. Each week we drop 500-600$ at whole foods feeding our brood healthy. Would love to see some menus that have meal ideas for large family friendly cooking.
