A Greek philosopher once said: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”. With this being said, how are you using food to give you energy, to help you lose weight or gain weight? There are many things to consider:
- Organic vs. non-organic
- Protein: animal vs. plant-based
- Acidity vs. alkaline
- Gluten-free or not
- Water dense
- And many more …
Get out your food planner: Add what foods you like to eat. Are they nourishing? Filling? Comfort food? Pick me up food? It all starts with planning and being clear on what you like. No point in adding a vegetable that is full of nutrients if you don’t like it. Do a little soul searching of what your favorite foods are. One way is to ask yourself what do you order when you go out for a meal? Is it something new, like Kimchi, when your curiosity is involved. Is it a dish you like a lot but is too time-consuming for you to make, like Lasagna?
Getting to know your palate is very important when gravitating towards your ideal menu. Then comes the other items on the above list that will help you define whether animal vs. plant-based, do you need more fiber, protein, warm or cold …etc. This is a fun journey of discovery and getting to experiment with new foods as well. Have you ever had a vegan raw cheesecake? The first time I tried it, I was skeptical. Now, I am a big fan! I love to experiment with flavors and textures and have posted some of my favorite recipes on our social media platforms. Please check them out. We would love to hear how they worked for you.
