The Principles

The question I get asked the most as a registered dietitian nutritionist is, “What is the ideal diet?” My answer is simple—there is none. We all need something different. We need different nutrients for different reasons at different life stages. So, where do you start then? Simply put, at the end of the day, I recommend that everyone starts with real food comprising whole, unprocessed, and unrefined ingredients. Outside of your personal dietary needs, there are some basic practices you can adopt to transform your food into medicine.

Finding Balance

In this chapter, I’ve highlighted some elementary yet significant nutritional information, including valuable details on vitamins and minerals, essential food groups, and inspiration for creating a balanced plate whether you’re an omnivore, vegetarian, or vegan.

Living Seasonally

When we override our natural rhythm, we suffer. Working night shifts long term with less exposure to sunlight, for example, has been linked to increased chronic diseases and illnesses, such as heart disease, gastrointestinal issues, weight gain, obesity, irregular eating habits, depression, and more. Or when we don’t honor the seasonal changes in our food system, both in farming practices and our diets, the environment suffers, and we can become sluggish and energetically stagnant. When we choose to live in the flow with nature and holistically support our health and happiness, we can thrive.

At Home In Your Kitchen

Creating a whole foods pantry is quite simple, and it will pay off tenfold in the long run. If you have an existing food pantry, allow yourself time to slowly transition from your current stock to more nutritious, whole foods by replacing one pantry category at a time. If you don’t already keep a pantry, use this chapter to help you establish one.
