• How much thought are you putting into your eating practice?
• Have you made the decision to eat life-affirming organic real food?
As you practice your life reset, you will be much more aware of what you put in your body. So many processed foods contain chemicals, additives, MSG, and so many more ingredients that you don’t want to digest and are completely unnecessary. That is why eating real organic life-affirming foods at each meal is recommended so often.
As you think about resetting your health you will want to balance your nutrition.
The way you eat, how much, and the ingredients you use are all essential to living a long, healthy, balanced life.
Here are some easy ways to get started on balancing out and resetting your nutrition.
Drink Your Water!
Of course, the first tip is going to be drinking water! Everyone needs water, and chances are you haven’t been drinking enough. Dehydration can often be very subtle, where you barely notice it. There are a few techniques that help you drink more water without thinking too much about it.
Start your day off with a glass of water. This is simple and a good way to start your morning routine. Brush your teeth, then drink your water.
Have a glass of water before every meal. Skip the juice or soda and make it a practice to drink water instead.
During your life reset making it a good practice and habit to eliminate the sugary drinks, juice and pop for example.
Bring water with you. Get a reusable water bottle and keep it in your car, your office, or anywhere else you plan to be.
Find Nutritious Life-Affirming Organic Foods You Love
You will absolutely not stick to a nutritious meal plan if you don’t enjoy what you’re eating. Take some time to find the life-affirming organic foods that you actually like to eat. It is important to understand that if you have not been eating real food, life-affirming organic food and making decisions to eat highly processed, Frankenfoods it might take some time to train your tastebuds for the variety of amazing foods from mother earth.
Think about your favourite foods and write them down. Look through your list of favourites and highlight the foods that contain a lot of nutrients. This might be organic fruits, organic vegetables, pastured proteins/poultry, wild-caught fish, nuts and seeds.
This will become your list of the highest quality ingredients to create meals with as you move forward with your health reset.
Go Seasonal With Your Food
To switch things up every couple of months, look into using the real foods that are in season. For example, in the fall, you can use more pumpkin, butternut squash, and apples in your meals, then switch to the seasonal greens, like asparagus, arugula, salads, and seafood in the summertime.
Using seasonal ingredients not only means your food will taste better, but it is also more affordable. Plus, it helps you to create more variety in your meal plans.
Consider Farmer’s Markets or CSAs
When it comes to your nutrition, it helps to do something a little different during a reset.
If you typically get your produce or other foods from the supermarket, consider something like a CSA for local produce or check out your local farmer’s market. This is a way to support your local community and have high-quality organic produce without spending too much.
We made the decision to do this almost ten years ago and it has been one of the best things we have done for our health and wellbeing. Now we are getting organic fruits and vegetables delivered to our door each week.
Practice The Art of Preparing Your Meals At Home
It seems that many people have lost the art of cooking at home. This can make it extremely challenging to balance your nutrition. One of the easiest ways to learn how to cook your own meals at home is to begin by practicing three real food recipes until you feel you have mastered them. Once you have accomplished this begin the practice of learning three more recipes.
If you do this each and every month you will have thirty-six recipes in your practice of home cooking. Once you are comfortable then begin the practice of experimenting with new and different spices and herbs. For example, you can take one of the recipes you are now an expert in and change up the spices or herbs to create new and different flavours.
