The "Yes" List

Let's face it: for most people, eating healthy is a huge challenge. Lately, I've been writing a "Yes" list to simplify things for some of my clients who have been having trouble, and it's been very helpful to a lot of them, so I thought I'd share it with you all. Basically, this is a list of foods you should go ahead and eat every day:
Plastic is not on the list.


-VEGGIES!!! (I put this on top because you should eat a LOT of them. Especially the green ones. Lots and lots.)
-Nuts, preferably sprouted
-Coconut (all parts)
-Fruit, nut, and seed oils (including olive and avocado; excludes things like corn oil)
-Some fruit-- not unlimited amounts.
-Fermented, sprouted, or whole soy products IN MODERATION (3 servings or less per day) such as tempeh, sprouted tofu, miso, natto, edamame. (Avoid if you have thyroid issues)
-Unsweetened nut milks
-beans (preferably fermented or sprouted)
-Sprouted grains and grain products such as bread, pasta, etc. If you can't get them sprouted, whole grains are second best. Should not dominate your diet.
-If you eat meat, then grass-fed, organic, lean meats and poultry.
-If you eat fish, then wild-caught fatty fish.
-Organic eggs.
-Water, coffee, tea.
-Erythritol, stevia.

So what's on the "No" list?

Anything that's not on the "Yes" list. :)

And, obviously, if you're allergic to anything on the "Yes" list, don't eat it.

Easy enough, right?
