Our Reset Diet

After weeks of traveling and being sick, we need to reset. I'm sure there are concoctions of vinegar and cayenne pepper that people recommend drinking as a cleanse, but yeah...we're just not gonna do that. Instead, we're going to eat healthy foods and allow our bodies to heal naturally.

I don't have a name for this diet. I'm not joining a program or buying a cookbook, but instead I'm using my own smart brain that I have filled with knowledge of nutrition plus our trial and error experiences with food.

So here's the approved food. We're doing this for the next 4 weeks and will re-evaluate:

  • Organic fruits and veggies purchased raw and in season (i.e. no strawberries in January)
  • Meat--only that which is purchased raw with a bone still attached and then cooked in my home
  • Broth--reserved from cooking the veggies and meats already listed
  • Homemade bread using a variety of whole grains excluding wheat
  • Homemade tortillas using corn masa
  • Long-grain brown rice
  • Maple syrup and honey
  • Coffee and tea
  • Water and plain seltzer water
  • Organic milk, cream, butter, cheese
  • Organic eggs
  • Almond milk and coconut milk
  • Olive oil and coconut oil
  • Simply OJ and apple juice
  • Dried herbs and seasalt
  • Nuts & seeds--no sugar or salt added
  • The only packaged items allowed: yellow box Cheerios, organic blue corn chips, chickpea pasta, whole oats, Van's ancient grains frozen waffles
  • The only canned items allowed: black beans, organic pumpkin
  • The only jarred items allowed: Imported Italian pasta sauce/tomato sauce, fruit preserves and pickles from local farmers. 
I'm looking forward to it actually! There are a lot of delicious ways to cook meat and veggies! I'm not going to photo and blog recipes--that's not my jam. Cooking like this takes time, and I suppose I'll spend less time on my computer as a result = probably an added health benefit. ;)
