My Food Philosophy
IN PURSUIT OF OPTIMAL DIGESTIVE HEALTH
If you are presently experiencing digestion-based symptoms/imbalances in the body and are looking to reclaim your digestive health via whole food, from-scratch cooking and a plant-rich dietary approach, then you have arrived at the right place!
Everything you feed your body affects every aspect of your
well-being, so be mindful. Knowing this, I choose to nourish my body
with a vibrant, fresh, whole food, plant-rich diet.
Diet has tremendous power to transform health! As such, we must tune in to the ways in which we fuel our body daily. We are always in the driver’s seat, headed in the direction of optimal health, if we consistently make informed and nourishing choices.
I passionately consume a plant-RICH, whole foods diet daily, selecting locally-grown and seasonal foods as often as possible. Choosing local and seasonal foods allow me to become increasingly knowledgeable about where my food has been grown and how it has been raised. I also look to non-GMO foods and choose organic when possible, particularly with produce ranking high in pesticide residues when grown conventionally.
I personally ensure I select a rich variety of nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds and aromatic spices. I boycott processed foods (rich in refined salt, sugar and harmful fats) and foods containing gluten, which knowingly contribute to discomfort and inflammation. I minimally invest in packaged foods, unless circumstances dictate. To minimize my own Digestive System inflammation, I opt to consume the therapeutic and nutrient benefits of organically-sourced or free-run eggs, organic or pasture-raised bone broth, organic or pasture-raised poultry, and wild-caught seafood.
Food consumption possesses the capacity to affect one's mood, energy level, sleep quality, skin, body mass and self-concept. When I observe how energized and strong I feel when my body is properly nourished, I remain dedicated to health-promoting and sustainable daily habits.
Developing an informed relationship between food and health is critical, especially in this day in age. It requires being open-minded and flexible. The pace of one’s daily life may not be an excuse; knowledge, preparedness, reflection and incremental changes guide the way toward your most VIBRANT state of health! You deserve nothing less!
I embrace this philosophy as a purposeful choice to maximize the magnificent future ahead!
In pursuit of vibrant health,
