The Perfect Plate
Let’s make this simple…
A well rounded nutritional meal should contain:
*a serving of PROTEIN. Complete sources include meat, fish, eggs and dairy (if tolerated). Vegetarian sources include nuts, seeds, legumes and grains.
Protein provides the building blocks for neurotransmitters (mood), hormones, enzymes (detoxification, digestion), immune factors and stabilises blood sugar levels. Roughly palm-sized portion.
*a serving of therapeutic FATS. This includes flaxseed oil, olive oil, avocado and coconut oil. Thumb sized portion.
*superior CARBOHYDRATES– sweet potato, potato, beetroot, pumpkin, quinoa, amaranth and rice. Approx 1/4 plate.
*vegetables- approx half plate full. Load up on green leafy vegetables and liver detoxifying cruciferous veges such as broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel sprouts, kale and cabbage.
Add garlic, onion, herbs and spices for a nutritional punch
