Wholefoods is a LIFESTYLE not a DIET!!

Living A Wholefood Lifestyle Explained!


Happy new year all! Now with the new year in full swing there is so much talk in the air about EXTREME, DIET, DIET, DIET.... Lemon drink for 5days, Only Protein for 10 days & who could forget the Atkins & Liquid Shake diets!!! Ahhhhhh they terrify me as education is the key to power, power is the key to making the right decisions for your health & learning how easy it actually is to lead a life full of abundance through a balanced, simplistic & wholefood diet. Those extreme diets do not offer any of this & instead give your body shock, a short term fix & leave you chasing your tail to a healthier YOU.

It really is simple & over the coming weeks I am going to teach you the basics to creating your own Wholefood kitchen & developing your own wholefood lifestyle through facts about Nutrition, where to shop, how to store the foods, recipes, food labeling, fats, salt, sugars & how to actually put together a basic meal from a box of vegetables. Today I am going to start with the basics, what to include & what to start cutting out.

A healthy balanced diet & lifestyle should consist of the following. Each heading will be explained in detail over the coming weeks.

Raw rolled Spelt or Oats, Buckwheat, Quinoa, Rye or Spelt bread, Spelt Pasta & Gluten Free Seeded breads.
