You’ve decided you’re going to do it! You’re going to eat to live!
Fist pump! High fives!
Okay, so you’ve started Dr. Fuhrman’s nutritarian lifestyle, but now what?
It’s overwhelming, right? To know exactly how to begin when you change your lifestyle this drastically!
I should know, because when I first adopted this lifestyle, it was for me too.
So, you’ve run the numbers and you can’t hire that personal chef. Don’t worry, I’ve got the next best thing (and it’s free)!
I’m on a mission to fill up this blog with at least 60 days of Eat to Live menu plans. Just. For. You.
Yup, that’s breakfast, lunch and dinner (and dessert) covered, so you don’t need to think about anything but regaining your health (and losing gobs of weight along the way)!
And I’ve got some really exciting news! You asked for it and I’ve delivered…
Printable shopping lists are here (starting with day 48)–that means even less for you to have to think about!

You’re going to be loving Day 49! I made a brand new recipe–Loaded (Purple) Sweet Potatoes–that you’ll find at the end of the post!
Okay, let’s do this…
EAT TO LIVE BREAKFAST:
- 1 fuji apple, sliced
- Easy Almond Sauce: mix 2 tbsp. raw almond butter with 3 tbsp. unsweetened almond milk
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (great source of daily calcium, I aim to have 1 cup a day)
EAT TO LIVE LUNCH:
- large mixed baby greens salad with roasted veggies. I used delicata squash, red onions and carrots (roasted at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes with a very light spray of olive oil). Topped with WildBrine Beet Sour Kraut (this is optional and should be avoided if you are following the Aggressive Weight Loss plan or going strictly no added salt), 1/4 Hass avocado and raw pepita seeds.
- Beet Hummus Dressing
- Green Smoothie
EAT TO LIVE DINNER:
- mixed baby greens salad with lima beans and corn (I used frozen for both and heated them in the microwave with a bit of water). Topped with diced red onion, 1/4 Hass avocado and raw sunflower seeds. Dressed with balsamic vinegar (or vinegar of your choice).
LOADED BAKED SWEET POTATOES:
This is a super-easy recipe and you can use the toppings suggested or toppings you have on hand like no-oil hummus.
Use 1 medium sweet potato per person. Top with the following:
- Cilantro Cashew Cream Sauce
- Tofu Eggs
- Beet Hummus Dressing
- diced green onion
- diced red peppers
Notes on Day 49:
Today’s menu really does a great job of sticking to Dr. Fuhrman’s Aggressive Weight Loss standards! Just make sure to skip the Sour Kraut, instead make your own picked red cabbage!
This menu will work for you if you’re ready to follow the 6-week plan at 100% compliance!
