A Blessing Money Can Not Buy

Knowledge is power. This is particularly true when it comes to matters of wellbeing. Our food choices and daily habits are precisely that: habits. Some of our habits work for us, whilst others can be detrimental. It is simple to break habits? Yes, absolutely it is! Are there some tweaks you could make to your habits and choices that could have a positive impact on your own wellbeing? Does it take a little effort? Yes. Will it be worth it? Yes.

Daily Habits

Chew and chew and chew small mouthfuls of food! Take your time and enjoy what you’re eating.

Eat at the table.

Avoid heated discussions and mobile phones at the table. Converse, and enjoy taking your time eating.

Allow two to three house between your last mean and bed.

Feel full? Then stop eating.

Dietary Habits

Fat is not necessarily the enemy. Low-fat diets are usually laden with carbohydrates and have vitamin deficiencies such as A, C, D and K, which makes protein digestion problematic. Opt for a full-fat butter, cream and animal fat, however ONLY from organic and free-range animals, as well as coconut milk/cream, salmon and avocado.

Choose wild caught fish. Read the label or ask your fishmonger.

Beans and lentils. Soak over night and cook rather than buying tins of beans.

Salt. White means processes, so choose Celtic or Himalayan salt, which is far more beneficial for us.

Pack your meals with protein, it will avoid hunger and that sugar craving!

Is it best to avoid gluten? If you strictly avoid gluten for 6 weeks and then introduce it, you’ll able to determine whether gluten works for you or not. You’ll know according to how you feel having eaten gluten.

Do you have gut issues? It’s best to avoid fruit especially bananas, mangoes, figs, cherries and all dried fruit.

Drink your coffee black without a snack or food. Decaffeinated coffee should be avoided unless you can source a pure organic decaffeinated coffee.

Artichoke, asparagus, aubergine, bean sprouts, brussel sprouts, cabbage, celery, celeriac, courgettes, cucumber, fennel, mushrooms, onions, peppers, leafy greens, lettuce, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, pumpkin. There is a whole alphabet of vegetables available, other than only potatoes, carrots and broccoli!

Eggs. The yolk should be a deep orange colour. Buy fewer eggs in the winter since chickens will naturally produce fewer eggs at this time in their cycle.
