I have found that my body feels best when I feed it the magic combo of protein + grains + veggies + healthy fats at most meals. I try to use this formula and whatever ingredients I have on hand as my guide to preparing meals. It makes for some interesting combinations.
Grain: 1/4 cup brown rice
Veggie: 3/4 of a tomato (Ok, I know it’s a fruit. Close enough.)
Healthy fat: 1/2 of an avocado
Dose with hot sauce and salt (if you want) and pepper and enjoy.
Veggie: Spinach. Also frozen fruits: banana,mango, berries.
Healthy fat: flax seed
This seems to be a good guideline for me, and helps me to eat whole foods packed with nutrients. I don’t take vitamin supplements, and feel great for the most part. It is so true that you are what you eat!!!!
