My new way of eating is as follows:
1) Whole, non-processed foods to include avoidance of refined sugars, flours, etc.
2) Daily intake of fish oil and a multi-vitamin.
3) Caffeine reduction.
4) Limited alcohol consumption.
5) Increased water intake.
With limited time we've started using a few appliances regularly and frankly, I think I would be eating rocks or licking the walls without my Blendtec Total blender which can pulverize an iPod, make soup, ice cream, almond butter and whole fruit smoothies. We also rely heavily on our Sanyo Fuzzy Logic rice cooker/steamer and the George Foreman Grill with removable plates. With all three products clean up and food prep are a snap. I have also removed WhoozyerDaddy from kitchen duty because you can't cook (and dodge food poisoning) in a cesspool of filth.
This may look disgusting but it's actually quite good (and filling). 1 banana, 5 strawberries, 1 clementine, 1 apple, 1 plum, 4 T vanilla whey protein powder, 1 tsp. filtered fish oil, vanilla, 1.5 cups fresh spinach leaves, 1/3 cup frozen blueberries. It all went into the blendtec and down my gullet. Yum!
Lunch was: 1 chicken boob (George Foremanned), 1 yellow squash peeled with a potato peeler into paparadelle, 1 matchsticked carrot, 1 lipstick red pepper, raw almonds, green onions, romaine lettuce and cilantro dressed with rice wine vinegar, homemade peanut butter,sesame oil, ginger and local honey. Awesome. Who needs Paul Newman salad dressing and asian lettuce mix?
