What Does A Kaufmann Diet Dinner Look Like?

Many people look forward to the final meal of the day as a time to relax, decompress, and enjoy time with family or friends. Whipping up a Kaufmann Diet dinner is very easy, but you won’t find many of the foods you would normally see at the table. The potatoes, regardless if they are mashed, fried, baked or twice baked, are gone. Bread is off the table regardless of whether it is corn bread, white bread, or wheat bread. Pasta is also eliminated, including mac and cheese. 

For a lot of people, your favorite part of dinner just got crossed off the menu. So, dinner might take some amount of re-imagination if we are going to eliminate the carbs and stick to The Kaufmann Diet. But coming up with a healthy, satisfying dinner that stays in the bounds of The Kaufmann Diet doesn’t require an enormous amount of work or imagination. 

It can be helpful to build your dinner around three different dishes:

The Protein

This is the easiest part. Whether it is a sizzling a grass-fed steak, baking wild-caught salmon, a slow cooked pork tenderloin, or a whole roasted chicken, picking a protein to base your dinner around is a simple choice. Most forms of animal protein are perfectly fine on the Kaufmann Diet. You are encouraged to stick to grass-fed beef or lamb, and organic is best when possible. Wild-caught fish is also preferable, as farmed fish are often contaminated. Pile on the herbs and spices when you are cooking; these often posses many health benefits while being quite delicious too. 

The Salad

Salads are a great way to get a lot of nutrition in one place. Use whatever leaves you like as a base, whether they are spinach, romaine, kale––all greens are rich in chlorophyll and other kinds of phytonutrients. From there, pile on whatever vegetables you like, onions, carrots, cabbage, are all good options. Top it with nuts, avocados, or olives. Dress it simply with olive oil mixed with lemon juice and apple cider vinegar. Pile on the herbs, spices and fresh garlic, and you have a satisfying, anti-fungal staple for dinner that you can enjoy every night. 

The Vegetable

Rounding out the plate could be any vegetable you like prepared however you like it. Roasted carrots, sautéed zucchini, crispy Brussels sprouts––anything you like is fair game. Roasted vegetables are a simple and delicious way to get a lot of nutrition in an easy to prepare dish. The only “vegetables” off limits here are corn, mushrooms, and potatoes. Beans are also discouraged on Kaufmann One, but are permissible if you have moved onto the less strict Kaufmann Two Diet. 

What About Dessert?

Of course, sugar is restricted on The Kaufmann Diet, because sugar is one of the worst things you can consume if you have an underlying yeast problem. However, if you can’t live without dessert, there are options. Focus on Kaufmann Diet-approved fruits, like berries or green apples. Tossed with pecans or walnuts and topped with freshly whipped heavy cream with a little stevia, you have a dessert that won’t wreck your diet. You can get creative with the Kaufmann Diet approved sweeteners, stevia and xylitol, and there are plenty of ideas for healthy desserts in the cookbooks available in the Know the Cause store.
