Most people who come for nutritional advice have tried many of the diets out there. After the sparkle wears off, and they just want to eat to be healthy, they feel confused as to what are the healthy rules??
.
No matter what health concern your dietary strategy may be targeting, there are some foundations that never go out of style.
.
🍎 Vegetables. I'm not talking about a measly peasly puff of salad as a side. I'm talking AT LEAST 3 cups each at lunch and dinner. They should fill 75% of your plate, and be a wide variety of colours. .
🍎 Anti-inflammatory foods. For some ideas there are many blogs and cookbooks to check out, like the Whole Life nutrition cook book, or Nourishing Meals. .
🍎 1.5 ltrs of filtered or spring water. If you're not filtering your water, your liver is doing it for you! (Eck).
🍎 Don't eat after 7 pm to give your organs of digestion time to do their thing before sleep. .
🍎I rely on a food intolerance test when we need to dig deeper. It is great for resolving symptoms like gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, fatigue, acne, arthritis, eczema, tonsillitis, ear and sinus infections etc..
