human beings, our main job is to eat and reproduce. Fortunately, we
don’t have to reproduce every day; we do have to eat. So why is
preparing and eating nutritious and delicious food near the bottom on
our list of daily priorities?
you look at the shelves and shelves of books at Barnes & Noble just
hollering about low fat, high carbs, no sugar, it is overwhelming.
the bottom line: Eat a huge variety of foods that are organically grown,
fresh, unrefined, and unprocessed.
to eliminate (do your best)
All refined sweeteners such as sugar, dextrose, glucose and high fructose
Refined grains such as white flour, pasta, white rice
All hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils polyunsaturated oils
and industrially processed oils such as soy, corn, safflower, cottonseed
and canola oils
Unfermented soy products such as soymilk, tofu, soy cheese, soy butter.
Miso, tempeh, shoyu and tamari soy sauce are great
Avoid rancid seeds and nuts found in granola
Avoid canned, sprayed, waxed, irradiated produce
Avoid food additives
green leafy vegetables (high in minerals, B vitamins)
blue and purple fruits such as blueberries, plums, huckleberries (high
in antioxidants, bioflavinoids,
to strengthen collagen)
- orange and red fruits and vegetables (high in cartenoids)
grains and beans
breads made from sprouted grains
organic beans and grains (oatmeal, millet) soaked overnight to break
Traditional vegetable oils such as extra virgin olive oil, expeller
pressed sesame oil, expeller-expressed flax oil and tropical oils
such as coconut and palm oil
