Eat In Abundance: Quick Guide
Whether you want to add more color to your diet, eat more fruits and vegetables, upper your fiber, feel more energized and vibrant – I think we all need to consume more plant-based foods! If you are an avid meat eater, you can still do, that but please consider adding more whole foods to your body.
Plant foods tend to digest a lot quicker and provide you with a plethora of micronutrients.
If you want to eat meat products, I recommend that you prioritize wild caught fish like cod or salmon.
Here is my recommended grocery list for you. You can browse recipes on my blog.
- Bananas (Great for snacks and smoothie staples)
- Berries (Fresh or Frozen: rich in antioxidants and very low in calories. You can eat them in smoothies, on your oatmeal, in a chia seed pudding, on their own).
- Grapes (One cup equals only 70 calories. Grapes are hydrating and very sweet – very handy to satisfy your sweet tooth)
- Apples (Rich in fiber and vitamins B. Eat them alone or add them to your oatmeal. You can sprinkle cinnamon on top if you would like; cinnamon naturally balances your insulin)
- Lemons and Limes (Very detoxifying. I recommend you drink a glass of water with a freshly squeezed lemon/lime juice first thing in the morning. It curbs cravings and speeds your digestion!)
- For smoothies, I recommend spinach or kale. For salads, I recommend lettuce or mixed greens (chopped arugula and kale)
- Zucchini, Celery and Cucumbers (You can add them to smoothies, to your salad or dip them in hummus)
- Cauliflower, Brussel Sprouts and Broccoli (I recommend you steam them for a few minutes and add them to your dinner. The fiber in those vegetables will keep you full and nourished due to their protein content.
- Mushrooms (Not only rich in protein and even vitamin D but also very low in calorie, mushrooms are your best friend while dieting or trying to eat healthily. You can even eat them raw. I recommend you marinating them in coconut aminos for 5-10 minutes for extra flavor. I love spicing them with black pepper, garlic and balsamic vinegar.)
- Tomatoes (Sweet and rich in lycopene, a cancer-preventative phytonutrient, tomatoes are great to add in salads or eat on their own as a pick-me-up snack. Just remember to stay away from processed dressing – very HIGH in saturated oil, sugars, and sodium! I recommend you using balsamic vinegar, Himalayan salt or coconut aminos and spices to flavor your salad)
- My number one choice is Chia, Flax and Hemp seeds: rich in omega 3, and high in fiber and protein
- For a dressing I like using pumpkin, sunflower and sesame seeds (they all contain your daily source of magnesium, selenium and calcium and, taste-wise, give a great creamy texture to your meal)
- Oatmeal, millet, quinoa and buckwheat (Great choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner and very easy to prepare)
Success! You're on the list.
