Daily “must-have” food
The food we eat has a great impact on our lives and there are many ingredients that can contribute to a great healthy life. However, here are the ones I recommend eating everyday.
Raw fruits that are in season. I recommend fruits to be the food category you will be eating the most. By the way, Avocado, Tomatoes and Bell Pepper are fruits.
Citrus fruits get their own section because of the importance of vitamin C. This could be oranges, lemons, grapefruits, pomelos, and limes.
Blueberries. Also try to add any other types of berries like strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, cranberries or goji berries. Tomatoes are technically also a berry.
Raw leaf vegetables (greens): Spinach, Microgreens, Chard / Swiss chard / Beet Greens, Romaine Lettuce, Endive, Bok Choy, Parsley, Dill, Coriander, Celery.
Cucurbits: pumpkin, zucchini, watermelon, cucumber and melon.
Turmeric. The only spice with its own section. I put it in almost every dish I make.
One tablespoon of ground Flax seeds.
Alliums. The best are Purple Onion and Garlic.
One or two Brazil nuts.
Take B12 supplement (if you are vegan).
Take Vitamin D (if you do not get enough sun).
This is very important to notice how much fat you consume daily. Best is not to consume more than 10% of your daily calories from fat sources.
If you are debating between several types of raw food; choose the type with the stronger color.
