Easy, delicious, & nutritious — a great way to start your day
Long before learning the “big picture” about the food that we eat, I read Fit for Life by Harvey and Marilyn Diamond and, as a result, made some pretty big changes in what I was eating. Following their simple guidelines, I started eating only fruit before noon. They pointed out that fruit is most beneficial if eaten on an empty stomach — reason being that fruit digests very quickly and delivers all those great nutrients to your 100 trillion cells right away.
I still practice their “empty stomach” rule but have modified the “nothing but fruit before noon” part. I have added oatmeal as a part of my “second” breakfast meal, a meal that keeps me feeling comfortably satisfied until mid-afternoon. My own regimen features 100% of my calories from whole plants – in nature’s package and I absolutely LOVE the food, savoring every bite, every morning.
My first food of the day is a large bowl of fresh fruit; including 3 or 4 items from the following list: pear, kiwi, orange, banana, plum, grapefruit, peach, berries, or mango. The picture below is an example that I had on Monday. In my next post, we will take a look at that oatmeal course mentioned earlier.
