Being a food lover I understand how miserable it can be to feel hungry. I eat plentiful all day and still manage to either retain my weight or lose it if I need to.
I am a qualified nutritionist and I healed severe pain from Arthritis and Fibromyalgia on The 333 plan.
This is a plan that I put together whilst writing my book and healing from my own personal ailments.
Good health is dependent on nutrition and from eating living vibrant foods.
Your cells make up your entire body and an unhealthy lifestyle promotes poor health and drains your inner life force.
Here is some information for healthy nutrition.
Firstly I would cut out anything which does not grow naturally. Processed foods, Breads, Dairy, Alcohol, Caffeine etc.
Eat foods in their whole natural state.
Processed foods are loaded with chemicals and refined sugars which turn to fat. Sugar is 100 percent fat free!!! So do not be fooled by the fat free label.
The body requires high nutrient rich foods that are easily digestable and bursting with vitamins and minerals.
Do you ever wonder why people who are overweight feel like they are starving?
It is because they are completely depriving their body of the wrong foods. They are starved of nutrition. Always hungry! On top of this they then go on a diet and starve themselves even more which is not a loving way to live.
I eat lots of calories every day, I never allow myself to feel hungry and I feel so vibrant and energised.
I enjoy smoothies with fruits, dates, tender green leaves, huge vegetable curries/chillies with brown rice, big crispy salads with nuts, seeds and creamy dressings, roasted vegetables, soups etc
The colour of my diet is like a rainbow, nothing is beige, nothing is fried and a huge portion of my diet is full of juicy gorgeous fruits.
I feel incredible, youthful and nourished.
I enjoy adding Cacao powder, coconut sugar & mint leaves to my banana and date smoothies which makes a tasty chocolate mint smoothie.
I enjoy herbs and spices sprinkled on vegetables and salads and I love the endless choices available.
My skin looks amazing, my nails and hair are strong. I am full of energy and my mind is alert and focused.
My motto is, if it is food that grows from the earth then it is a good option.
Everything your body needs to heal itself and to look amazing is out there growing naturally without the interference of processing.
Plants have everything your body will ever need and you can eat all day long. No calorie counting, no waiting, no misery.
Not only will your weight stabalise and reduce excess fat but you will nourish, glow, heal and feel happier about yourself.
Give your body a break. It is hard work breaking down meat in the digestion system. Meat contains cholesterol, hormones, growth accelerators and other detrimental factors that your body would benefit to eliminate. It is not the most suitable protein source either (realise that animals get their protein from plants). Pigs live on a diet of soy and corn.
There is also terrible cruelty and suffering caused by mass producing animals in distressing conditions. Their lives are taken unecessarily and eating them is a detriment to our health.
Animal products are also heavily linked to diet related cancers and heart disease.
Meat & Dairy create acidity in the body which is a thriving breeding ground for disease.
Consider how the NHS is under extreme pressure from the growing number of cancer cases, heart disease, obesity and diabetes. If a standard diet was so healthy, why are we having a health crisis?
If your body eliminates the stress of digesting heavy meat products you will burn fat faster, absorb nutrients more effectively and feel amazing.
I make stews and stir fry's with a variety of vegetables and a serving of brown rice.
I enjoy snacking on rice cakes and peanut butter.
I enjoywheat free pasta with fresh tomatoes, pepper and basil. quinoa, rice noodles, oats, fruits lots of colourful fresh clean food. Smoothies, juices etc. I can eat as much as I need and never count a single calorie. There are no calories to count on The 333 plan. Ever!
You will begin to sparkle and your skin will look younger and more beautiful.
Enjoy a diet rich with goodness and devoid of animal flesh or excretions.
Fill your body with living foods and you will discover exactly how you were meant to look and feel.
We have become a culture who want food fast and we have sacrificed our health for it.
Its time to take control. It is time to step out of the mindset and to see that what we are eating is destroying us. We literally have the power to heal and transform ourselves.
Keeping hydrated is very important. Plenty of water helps to flush out toxins and fat, helps digestion and lubricates aching joints. Every joint in your body is under extra stress if you suffer from excess weight.
Helping to maintain a healthy weight will help your joints.
Remember its not a diet but a real change of life style..
Remove Dairy from your diet
Animals are under so much stress to mass produce and they are forced into a production line.
Even if you have no thought for the concern of animals, realise that the content of your dairy comes from an animal who recently gave birth to a baby calf.
Milk that is rich in fat to accelerate the growth of a baby Calf into a fully grown Cow is not designed for the human body and never was.
It is filled with post pregnancy hormones of an animal which is not your species.
It also contains mucus, blood, anti biotics etc.
It has no benefit to the human body at all. We are in a country with rising osteoarthritis and it is a normal sight to see people over sixty on a mobility scooter or with a disability aid.
Milk did not promote healthy bones it promised us all. Our body does not require dairy after we have reached the stage of weaning. We are the only species on the planet to unaturally consume the milk of another species and also to continue to consume it after weaning onto solids.
Cheese is an addictive saturated fat. Imagine pushing a block of cheese down the sink and trying to wash it away. It is a greasy clinging substance.
Filtering dairy through the body is taxing and inevitable that weight gain will occur. Not to mention the plaque building inside our arteries which narrow blood vessels to the heart and cause heart disease. A plant based diet contains zero cholesterol and it is a kind way forward to improve health and to heal.
Many athletes and celebrities are already adopting this lifestyle and a plant based lifestyle has increased by 700 percent in the last two years.
A plant based diet is the only diet EVER scientifically proven to reverse heart disease.
I am a great believer that every single action has a consequence. It is time to be aware of the food industry and your health.
Its not just about the way you look on the outside. It is about having a clean body inside.
Eating highly nutritious foods makes you feel clean, light and energised. Your organs get a break from all of the hard work of metabolising heavy animal products and it has a more effective chance of absorbing vital nutrients which are necessary for healing and repairing.
A typical day for me consists of drinking water first thing when I wake, adding some lemon juice or any citrus
Eating juicy fruits like melons, mangoes or several freshly squeezed oranges, overnight oats with chia seeds and agave syrup etc for breakfasts.
I only eat when my body feels hungry. My breakfast can be at 11am as I allow my instincts to guide me rather than eating at set times. Breakfast is simply the breaking of a fast and the body needs time to digest the food from the day before. Piling food on before the body wants it, hinders digestion and creates painful digestive issues.
Try to tap into the prompts of your body to eat.
Lunch may consist of two massive smoothies, a big salad or soup with rye bread etc
Dinner could be a large salad with veggies and I mean huge. I chip potato wedges and bake them on a nonstick paper sprinkled with curry powder or any spice I like (no oil) and eat them with greens and salad. Or I love a vegetable curry, a stir fry or a veggie chilli with brown rice.
I eat until my body feels full.
This is an example of the types of meals I eat daily.
I love my food so much and never feel deprived.
I make sweet raw chocolate energy balls or have a high quality dark chocolate bar.
Be aware of your food addictions.
Removing refined Sugar, Caffeines, Salty processed foods & saturated Fats may make you feel low or even suffer headaches & cravings for a while.
The good news is that the withdrawals do not last more than a few days, maximum of a week.
You may feel unwell depending on how much you consumed in the past but once the initial withdrawal has passed, your body can begin to start healing.
Headaches, lethargy, anger, depression, sadness etc often occurs from detoxing but they soon pass quickly.
Good riddance to unhealthy foods, they do not serve you & they make you sick.
Try to go to bed early and be strong until you pass the initial part of your healing journey.
Then just get ready for the opposite feeling to kick in.
The feeling of wellness.
Yoga is all about taking care of yourself as a whole not just a temporary fix, but a complete wholesome lifestyle.
This beautiful practice re aligns your skeleton, strengthens your muscles and creates space around the joints, soothing your nervous system & helping you to feel great (which is your natural state).
Your skin, hair, organs, joints, sleep pattern, stress levels will all improve for the better. You will interact with people better and be more aware of yourself and those around you.
My plan The 333 plan is about understanding that your mind, body and spirit require your attention. The mind can create or reverse sickness, depending on your thoughts and stress levels.
Being at war with yourself and disconnected from your divine spiritual self creates unease and fear.
This can feel like life is out of control. Re connecting brings strength, power and happiness.
This is your original state of being.
My class and The 333 plan is a wake up call and Im here to help take the first step.
Shopping list plan and a few ideas
Always have plenty of food readily available as you do not want to feel
Preparation is key
This is not a diet, it is a lifestyle
Eat lots of fresh fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts/seeds
Try to make the morning and lunch time high in an abundance of juicy fruits, raw veggies and salads
Great items to add to your shopping
Sweet potatoes (Bake them, make curries, make oven chips)
Tinned tomatoes use them in soups & pasta dishes
Every fruit you can lay your hands on (Fruit is healing)
Juicy fruits should be eaten in abundance.
Advocados limited to every other day
It is a myth that fruit can cause diabetes or worsen it. Fruit eaten in its whole form has fibre to slow down the release of natural sugar. Eat it in abundance.
Type 2 diabetes can be completely reversed on a plant based diet
A plant based lifestyle is the only diet that has ever been proven to reverse heart disease.
Dates are like sweets and they can help stop cravings for refined sugars.
Have dried fruits as a snack and not in huge amounts because the sugars are concentrated.
Pack ripe fruits into smoothies. Bannana & Date smoothies are my absolute favourites. The base is always those two ingedients and then I add one other fruit or a handful of spinach.
Remember no limits on fresh fruits, they are the most healing.
An abundance of vegetables of all varieties and salads.
Mushrooms are my meat! Big fat juicy mushrooms. Make them the meat of curries, stir frys, shepherds pies.
Onions and garlic are great for flavour. Bright coloured peppers in stir frys and curries. Roasted vegetables. Oven chips etc etc.
Porridge oats & chia seeds made with rice/almond/oat milk and agave syrup is very filling and delicious. Soak them overnight to allow the chia seeds to expand and help the oats to digest easily
Rice milk/Almond Milk/Soya Milk/Oat milk are great alternatives to cows milk
Dairy free spreads
Coconut oil for cooking
Peanut butter (Eat in moderation)
Nuts & Seeds (Keep nuts and seeds low)
I have a Vitamix blender & a Nutri bullet for travelling. I love my smoothies daily for convenience, my health and to satisfy my big appetite.
Use onions, garlic, chilli powder, curry powder and any other herbs and spices (there are so many).
These will flavour your food and help it to taste delicious.
Make salsas and sauces with ripe tomatoes, use nuts and plant milks as a base to make creamy dressings.
Keep hydrated and drink plenty of water.
Have melons alone and not with other fruits or foods.
Melon digests fast and is one of the fastest absorbing foods you can eat.
Herbal teas are soothing and hydrating
Make your own ginger and lemon tea by boiling some ginger pieces and lemon together.
Infuse mint leaves and really experiment with fresh ingredients.
Huge crispy fresh salads
A mono meal of ripe fruit
Make one fruit a whole meal. Melon or Mangoes etc
Smoothies packed with bananas to keep you full.
Huge vegetable curries or stir fries with rice.
A large portion of baked chipped potatoes sprinkled with spices.
Eat big, no guilt, just eat until you feel full
Be creative. There are hundreds of things available. People always say to me
What can you eat as a Vegan?
It makes me laugh because the choice is so huge.
It is only the mind that creates limitations.
Keep in mind your cravings are normal and they will go away. Sugar, Salt, Fat and Alcohol/Caffeine are addictive.
Cravings will pass.
All things pass.
Eat life and feel full of energy.
