Healthy eating is a personal thing. I mean what's healthy eating for me differs from people that don't have autoimmune diseases. But in general there's a lot of myths about healthy eating.

FAT

To simplified it... We need fat, good fat like olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, and the best fat of all... fresh avocado. None of these needs refrigeration.

VEGS

We also need vegetables, I do a mix of cauliflower, broccoli, carrot and zucchini. Steam in a pot Will last me 3 meals. To complement we also need starchy vegetables... the carrots are one, so is sweet potatoes and any type of squash. I prefer butternut squash. They can be boiled,steamed, I prefer roasted. Wen I roast a batch it last me for a week. Ideally between 1 to 3 cups of Vegs per meal and a 1/3 cup of starchy Vegs per meal depending on your appetite. Wen your body says that's enough your full, you have to stop.

PROTEIN

Protein is also important, about the size and thickness of the palm of our hand. It's easy to cook. Or buy some pre cook Protein. I also love canned food. Tuna,sardines, seafood, ham...

THE MEAL

My go to meal... 3/4 cup steam vegs 1/3 cup starchy vegs 1/2 avocado 1 radish 1-2 tbsp sauerkraut 1 medium tuna can in olive oil mixed with kalamata olives. ( reddish brown olives) Fruit in season.

I sprinkle good quality evoo (extra virgin olive oil ) on top of all vegs then sprinkle mineral sea salt on top of all vegs including Sliced radish and avocado.

This gives me enough energy to last 5 to 7 hours without having snacks between meals. I do this 3 times per day I only change the protein.

Lost 30 pounds first 3 months. 5 pounds the 4th month.

After one month stoped cholesterol, high blood pressure meds. Reduce half of meds from psoriatic arthritis.

If we want it... We can.

1/2 avocado? What do you do with the other half? If you can only eat a half avocado at a time, you have more self control than I do!
