 Seasonal Menu Plans: Summer 4-Day Menu Plan 
In summer, we consume more liquids and raw, fresh fruits and vegetables, salads, and a lighter diet in general, and we are usually more active. This is a good season to experiment with special diets, such as fasting, or a raw food diet. The italicized food selections in the menu plans will have a specific recipe following the four-Day menus.

Breakfast: Breakfast Rice, or puffed rice or rye flakes with yogurt
Snack:Soaked almonds
Lunch: Salad of mixed greens, raw spinach, chives, grated carrots,
tomatoes, and tuna fish (or a mixture of bean sprouts or
tofu salad for the vegetarian) with vinaigrette of avocado or
olive oil, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, herb salt, and cayenne
Snack: Peaches
Dinner: Stuffed Bell Peppers, steamed Swiss chard sprinkled with roasted
pumpkin seeds, minced garlic, olive oil, and soy sauce or tamari.
Snack: Rice cake with apple butter, or papaya

Day 2
