Daily “must-have” food

The food we eat has a great impact on our lives and there are many ingredients that can contribute to a great healthy life. However, here are the ones I recommend eating everyday.

  • Raw fruits that are in season. I recommend fruits to be the food category you will be eating the most. By the way, Avocado, Tomatoes and Bell Pepper are fruits.

  • Citrus fruits get their own section because of the importance of vitamin C. This could be oranges, lemons, grapefruits, pomelos, and limes.

  • Blueberries. Also try to add any other types of berries like strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, cranberries or goji berries. Tomatoes are technically also a berry.

  • Raw leaf vegetables (greens): Spinach, Microgreens, Chard / Swiss chard / Beet Greens, Romaine Lettuce, Endive, Bok Choy, Parsley, Dill, Coriander, Celery.

  • Cucurbits: pumpkin, zucchini, watermelon, cucumber and melon.

  • Turmeric. The only spice with its own section. I put it in almost every dish I make.

  • One tablespoon of ground Flax seeds.

  • Mushrooms.

  • Alliums. The best are Purple Onion and Garlic.

  • One or two Brazil nuts.

  • Take B12 supplement (if you are vegan).

  • Take Vitamin D (if you do not get enough sun).

  • This is very important to notice how much fat you consume daily. Best is not to consume more than 10% of your daily calories from fat sources.

  • If you are debating between several types of raw food; choose the type with the stronger color.
