Good foods that you probably
should eat: (have you noticed that all the doctors will tell you
is what you should NOT eat? In the hospital, they feed you the B.R.A.T. diet.)
Bananas: Potassium, fiber. If you look, in most southern states of the USA,
you can find local trees. You haven't lived until you have tasted one that
ripened on the tree.
Rice: Cheap, stores well (add salt to keep out bugs, rinse off before cooking).
To cook without fear or special wares: Set a calender into the top of a pot.
Add two parts water to one part rice below, and fresh or frozen veggies above
then set a lid down into the calander to trap the steam. Set on high just
long enough to boil, then turn to simmer and leave for 15 to 45 minutes.
Apples: Cooked not raw. Try with margerin and a little brown sugar.
Or in a pie. Or blend into a sauce.
Toast: White bread (not whole grain; there are many better source of fiber
and the particles will irritate your bowls) toast from organic weat (unless
you are alergic), rice, or oat bread. Always toasted. With butter and honey
Cantaloupe: 1/4 per day for all the Vitamin A and C you need. Buy local grown
or only when in season
Sweet Potatoes: Carotenoids, Vitamin C, potassium, and fiber. More like carrots
than potatoes. Try with apple sauce or pineapple.
Oranges: Folic acid, fiber, and Vitamin C.
Beans: Garbanzo, pinto, black, navy, kidney or lentils. Protein, iron, folic
acid and (of course) fiber. Cook well; avoid the cost of heating by using
a solar oven. Chew well. If you get gas, do
the yoga poses, or just lay down in one of those positions.
Spinach or Kale: Calcium, Vitamin C. If you can grow your own
wait until the outer leaves just start to take on a yellowish tint and then
trim them away leaving the inner parts to take their place. They will be
almost sweet and nothing like the canned or frozen junk. Salid or lightly
A fresh meat: Humans are omnivores for a reason. B Vitamins, protein, folic
acid. Find a source locally grown, organic, well cared for
chicken, fish, rabbit,
or other lean meat. Shake hands with the rancher and smell the animals. To
cook: Outdoor barbecue on a wood fire is the absolute best. Several Japanese
barbecue sauces give great results, but nothing beats taragon, basil or oregano
grown in your own garden. Honey and mustard is
also nice for a change.
Water: Nobody drinks the recommended 8 16oz glasses a day right? Try this:
Next time you have a soda, dilute it with one quarter water. Next time, half
water. Then work your way up to mostly water with mabey an eigth soda. You
will be amazed at how good it begins to taste and you are getting more water
than you would have otherwise.
