“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
We all have unique needs and there is no one-size-fits-all in terms of nutrition. For this reason, I suggest that you do your own research and consult with a dietician if you need to. However, here is an idea of what you could do. It works for me and it might benefit you too.
I start my day with a warm lemon drink and/or a wheatgrass shot if I am able to. If you want more information about these then inbox me.
Then later in the morning, I drink my “brain” smoothie; something like this:
Some frozen spinach,
Cold-pressed flaxseed oil,
Chia seeds (soaked),
A bit of oats (slightly fermented is better – ask me how),
A few ice blocks,
Cayenne pepper and
A scoop of pea protein powder
(As pictured below - this was taken this morning)
I do loads of intermittent fasting, dry fasting, and wet fasting. This has been part of my life since I was a teenager and I find it very useful – you might too. There has been loads of information and research in this regard lately and I highly recommend that you look into it as the health benefits are amazing!
For me, nutrition and fitness are not so much about what you don’t do or about getting too flustered about “taking away” the bad stuff – the cookies, ice cream, chips, etc. Rather, it’s about what you add to your life: the living, the fresh, the enzyme-rich, the cleansing, the fermented, the nutritious and nourishing, and the kind stuff that makes you feel alive.
So just start playing around with the good stuff and don’t get too stressed about what you can’t do, look at what you CAN do/add. For example, people say to me that they can’t afford nuts, seeds, berries, etc., but to be honest my food costs me very little because I really don’t eat that much because I focus on nutrient density rather than quantity and it works for me. Besides, many of these people 'can' afford the expensive medicines and supplements they are forced to use because of health problems related to a lack of dietary input. Then there is the money that goes for unhealthy snacking, take-aways, fancy coffee's, alcohol, cigarettes, etc. so the funds are there, it's just a matter of deciding to prioritize what is most beneficial.
Also, there are amazing benefits that you can enjoy from something as simple as sprouting, fermenting foods, and drinks such as kombucha or growing your own small garden – even if you are indoors, there are vertical options and ANYONE can do this, even if you live in a shack.
Invest in living, vibrant, and beautiful food and you will be alive, full of energy and health!
