Sample Menus for My Fibromyalgia Prevention Diet


 Read my disclaimer and terms of use.  

 

You can use the tools at Nutrition Data to make sure that for the menus you plan for yourself you are getting your minimum daily values for all major vitamins and minerals. Note that adequate magnesium is especially important for muscle relaxation.

 
One potato - 21% DV
 
One ounce of cashews - 16% DV
     
 
One half cup chopped broccoli - 4% DV
 
Banana - 15% DV
Selected whole foods - percent of daily values (DV) of Mg

 

Ideally all food should be fresh and organic and free from commercial dyes, preservatives and other additives. If you buy canned foods, try to get the kind of cans that are BPA free.

Sample menus -

 

Day One

Breakfast - 2 egg artichoke omelet with an apple

Snack - Handful of macadamia nuts

Lunch - Home made crock pot soup made with:

Snack - Unsweetened apple sauce and pistachios.

Dinner - Steamed asparagus, steamed red pepper, roast pork tenderloin and a sweet potato.

 

Day Two

Breakfast - 2 egg omelet with red and green peppers with a small tangerine.

Snack - Handful of pistachio nuts

Lunch - Home made crock pot soup made with:

  • Canned organic garbanzo beans - Eden Foods brand
  • Ground beef
  • Eggplant
  • Yellow squash
  • Celery
  • Asparagus

Snack - More soup.

Dinner - Stir fried teriyaki chicken, steamed mixed vegetables (celery, yellow squash, zucchini, pea pods, yellow pepper) and organic jasmine rice.

Day Three

Breakfast - 2 hard boiled eggs, baked beans and fresh pineapple.

Snack - Handful of walnuts.

Lunch - Home made crock pot soup made with:

  • Home made vegetable and chicken stock for a base
  • Carrots
  • Lima beans
  • Chicken pieces
  • Artichokes
  • Wax beans
  • Orange colored peppers
  • Green beans

Snack - More soup and an orange.

Dinner - Roasted yam, stir fried mixed veggies in sesame oil and a chicken breast.

I keep a batch of soup in the crock pot set to low all day and snack on that whenever I get hungry between meals. I think the best stock is home made vegetable, meat or poultry stock. But if I don't have any home made stock on hand then I'll just use a can of beans mixed with water and a little bit of salt for a soup base. I also use Kitchen Basic's stock. It comes already prepared from the grocery store (in a box, not a can).

I can't honestly say that I eat this healthy every single day, but I try to do so. When I succeed in sticking to this type of diet I do have more energy, feel better and have less pain and fibromyalgia problems.

If you want to save money, you can buy dried beans and cook them in the crock pot. Make extra and freeze some for future use.
