5 Foods I eat with every meal

I love rituals and I love having a daily routine of some sort. When my daughter was born I had to lower my expectations of what I could do to “start my day off right” and got by with a quick down dog and some lemon water. Through the years I have been pretty consistent in making sure I get the foods that I feel are right for my body everyday and with every meal. These include:

  1. Vegetables: greens, roots, raw, cooked, steamed, organic, local, whatever. I just make sure I eat vegetables everyday, and with every meal. Actually I plan my meals around my veggies as they are the “main” part of my dish. I am also a fan of fruit, I just eat way more veggies.
  2. Healthy fats: fish oil, bone broth, olive or coconut oil, avocados, nuts, seeds. For those of you that know me from my previous blog, The Greek Bite, I am addicted to nut butter.
  3. Protein: I have been vegan, vegetarian, paleo, etc., which means I have indulged in various different sources of protein. Nonetheless, whatever I do chose to eat, I make sure I have protein in my meal as it keeps me stable and energized.
  4. Sea Salt. My chinese doctor taught me that salt has every memory of the earth in every granule and with this every element needed to survive. I try not to overindulge, just a sprinkle does the trick.
  5. Spices: I like to experiment with new spices as well as to use my old-time favorites, such as nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger. Spices has so many benefits and pack a powerful dose of goodness in just a pinch.
