Healthy Diet

No need to get too hung up on the healthiest diet is the world. Keep it simple.

Make sure to enjoy an abundant array of fruits and vegetables of different colors. Different colors represent different types of nutrients present in foods. Enjoy a minimum of 10 servings of combined fruits and vegetables of different colors (preferably more vegetables than fruit). If possible it is always best to eat organic and non GMO to reduce burden of toxins from pesticides and get more nutrient dense richness from every bite.

Do your best to follow the Plate Rule which includes ensuring:

* half your plate is filled with fruits and vegetables

*quarter filled with whole grains (quinoa, brown rice, whole grain bread, so forth)

*quarter filled with wholesome source of protein (unprocessed meat, fish, legumes, lentils, beans)

It is important to ensure farmed meat is grass finished, organic and non GMO. Grass finished meat from goat, lamb, beef ensures animals are fed grass for the entire duration of their life. This means lean meat that is nutrient dense. Find a local farmer, visit them to see how they practice raising their animals to ensure you are feeding yourself the best meat.

How to implement this? It's easy, here are a few simple ideas:

*Breakfast: Bowl of oatmeal with variety nuts and seeds (sunflower, pumpkin, almonds) with a veggie/fruit shake (mixed greens, mango, pineapple, banana)

*Lunch: Stir fried veggies, brown rice, baked


*Dinner: Casserole containing stir fried veggies, ground meat/tofu, sweet potato/cauliflower mix and some wholesome cheese
