What ARE you/we/all of us 'supposed' to eat? It's the same and different all at the same time.
We are supposed to eat mostly plants because that is what our cells want/crave/need and thrive on. That's how we RUN. That is our FUEL. In any given day, how much you eat, when you eat, what you pick and put together CAN and WILL change and vary. IF you have a health condition, a disease, then your food becomes MORE FOCUSED. Because you are working with your body to bring it back into alignment and there's no time for messing around. In THAT case above it's vital to really filter out any of the 'slow down' foods. So that ALL of you can get better/heal/transform FASTER because WHY WAIT.
Do you know what these filter out foods are? Things like soy/gluten/dairy/MSG/processed foods/Sugar/Canola oil/dyes/fillers/ ALL of that slows you down. So then, what are you left with?
>>Well sourced proteins (optional of course) organic, grass-fed, wild caught
>>Plant proteins: lentils, legumes, split peas, black beans, chickpeas, etc
>>Seeds: chia, flax, pumpkin, sesame, quinoa
>>Gluten free grains: oats, amaranth, rice
>>FRUITS: all of these!!!
>>Vegetables: all of these!!
>>Well made (sourced) and pure ingredient products with simple singular ingredients
Cool things like:
Sugar free ketchup, mustard, marinara, salad dressings, pickles, dairy free milks or "mylks" cauliflower rice, frozen chopped/sliced foods, kale chips, treats made out of things like dates, coconut, nuts, etc; banana bites (YUM), roasted chickpeas, grain free chips, healthy gluten free 'chips' or snacks
and on and on.
So FIRST know this. Those are the basics.
Within the basics:
EAT MOSTLY fruits and veggies all day everyday. I think this is the hard part for you? If not let me know. Is the question more, HOW do I do that? How do I make things I like to eat and want to eat out of this list and mostly plants? I think it is. So I'm going to put together a challenge for next week:
Every day next week I'll be doing a livestream on this subject of how to make plant based eating EASIER and what you need to know about it:
