First of all, this series of posts is directed to those seeking an immediate and drastic change in their diets to enable healing.
Start out by making yourself a large salad. Mix up some dressing using: lemon juice (fresh), Extra Virgin olive oil, and sea salt. A good proportion is 2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice to 1 1/2 Tablespoons olive oil, salt to taste (Per 1/2 heads of lettuce, I did say large 😉 ). Store those separately in the fridge.
Now you’re ready for the next big step.
In spite of the fact that it’s best to focus on what you’re adding into the diet rather than cutting out, CLEAN OUT YOUR CUPBOARDS!
I know, I know…
Everything in there cost money.
You can’t stand the idea of all that waste.
What about all the hungry people in the world, etc.
Well, they and you will be better off without all the crap you’ve been eating. Throw it out, it is trash.
You’ve got to see the “food” in that pantry with new eyes. What is more important? The money you spent on it, or your health, even your very survival?
Be strong. We hear what we want to hear. And if you want an excuse to continue in your old habits, you’ll find it. However, if you continue on in this path, you’ll receive plenty of confirmation that you’ve made the right choice.
So, what to throw out…
Anything containing white flour. If it says wheat flour – it is white (if if wasn’t it would say Whole Wheat Flour).
Anything containing high fructose corn syrup.
Anything containing sugar, sucrose, fructose, lactose, corn syrup, and anything else ending in -ose that I am forgetting.
Anything containing dairy; including casein, lactose, etc.
Anything containing meat.
Anything containing artificial sweeteners or colors.
Read the labels. It’s not always obvious. Most peanut butter contains sugar. Most canned vegetables do too, especially corn. Read the labels and you’ll be fine. When in doubt, throw it out.
Remove the salad and dressing from the fridge and toss the dressing into the salad bowl. Sit down and enjoy a nice large dinner salad.
Make soup for your next meal using any edible veggies you found during the clearing out process. Try using this recipe as a guideline.
