I’d suggest the following food pairs for better health during the day:
Choose lean protein or complex carbohydrates with plant fat for breakfast, eat fresh fruit with nuts mid-morning or mid-afternoon, have your main starch at lunch with plant fat, or you could opt for a big green salad with beans, and have lean protein with vegetables for dinner.
Here are some great combinations:
- Oatmeal + pecans
- Egg whites + avocado
- Orange + walnuts
- Greek yogurt + berries
- Cottage cheese + pineapple
- Whole grain bread + peanut butter
- Hummus + raw veggies
- Spinach + cannellini beans
- Fish + asparagus
- Chicken + broccoli
SOME OPTIONS FOR 24 HOURS OF IDEAL EATING
BREAKFAST: Mushroom omelet, avocado toast, vegan pancakes with butter, or strawberries and apple slices.
LUNCH: Baked potato with steamed broccoli, spinach-and-white bean salad, lentil soup with roasted cauliflower, or sashimi with seaweed salad.
SNACK: Green salad, orange with kiwi slices, cucumbers and hummus, or celery with peanut butter.
DINNER: Chicken breast with asparagus, lamb with cauliflower rice, brown rice with sauteed mixed veggies, or roasted peppers stuffed with millet.
