my plan for optimum health because optimum health is part of achieving an optimum experience of life.
-eat raw as much as possible. and don't fall into an all or nothing approach. if i happen to not eat raw, make it something decent like brown rice, beans, cooked veggies, tofu, etc. not pizza, white bread, ice cream, or fried food, etc.
-really delve deeper into yoga and meditation. remember to practice it daily, preferably early in he day. this really tunes me into my body.
-get enough protein/fats/greens first then sugary things like fruit. my body works best like this.
-keep fridge at home brimming with raw goodness: romaine, spinach, sunflower seeds, flax, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, olive oil, tahini, raw nuts, carrots, tomatoes, avocados, frozen berries, cocoa, spices, sweet potato, grapefruit, lemon, coconut, etc. keep some decadent healthy treats on hand so i dont feel deprived and binge. good options are lara bars or raw nut butter.
-eat more slowly. chew food fully. only eat when truly hungry. stop when satisfied. don't fall prey to gluttony. eat until you feel neutral and pleasant, not uncomfortable.
-don't obsess, dont count calories, indugle healthfully. a true indulgence is high quality and nutritious.
