Figuring out what to eat can seem like an overwhelming task for many people. There is so much conflicting information out there it is no wonder many people are afraid to make a change. Headlines change daily, each one contradicting the one before. Eating well shouldn’t have to be complicated.
Keeping it it simple has been the motto that works for me and many of my clients. You don’t need to spend hours prepping a dish with 75 different ingredients that you may only use once and then have take up space in your spice cupboard. Keeping it simple means this to me: eat real food. That’s it. Avoid packaged and processed and refined and bleached and dyed and mechanically separated. Eat vegetables (and lots of them!), eat fruit (and a variety of them!), eat whole grains and lean cuts of meat. Choose healthy fats from whole sources such as avocados and nuts and seeds. And once you get the hang of that, get creative with spices and cooking methods.
Keeping it simple doesn’t mean making it boring.
Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tip toe if you must, but take the step .
