Raw, Fresh and the Peak of Nutritious

If you want more bang for your buck, switch your thinking when it comes to peak nutrition.
Find the best places to shop for produce. Plan once a week shopping.

Center your meals around the raw herbs and vegetables instead of the meat.

Meal Planning Guide:

  • Spinach salad with almonds and carrots
  • Sliced sweet bell peppers of varying colors
  • Diced tomatoes, chopped chives and fresh parsley. Sprinkle with fresh, squeezed lemon
  • Avocado slices, chopped tomatoes, fresh cilantro sprinkled with fresh lime
  • Sliced peaches and mango with a wedge of lettuce
  • Blanched sugar snap peas and walnuts
  • Grilled Chinese cucumber, sprinkled with EV olive oil and Italian blend seasoning
Scan the market for new things to try.

How do I view food?

How do you view food intake within your Christ-centered life?

Do you blame food (Good Food, Bad Food Theory) for your medical condition? Do you view certain foods as an instrument of evil (seriously, many of us do this).


Is food intake a part of your over-all, healthy lifestyle? Do you view food as a series of choices?

  •  I can choose not to eat certain foods and I can choose what I want to include in my diet?
  •  I can demand that food companies provide honest knowledge of their food ingredients, processing and packaging. But, I will not allow this to create negative stress in my life.
  • I can learn what foods make me feel good and what foods make me feel bloated and yucky (very fitting word, if you ask me).

Take charge of your choices. Start with daily dialogue with God.
