What do I eat?

Cruciferous vegetables

The cruciferous vegetables providing a wealth of bioavailable vitamins and minerals natural fibre and a spectrum of phytochemicals improve insulin sensitivity, promote efficient heart function under stress and provide a spectrum of antioxidants that help protect our cells against excessive free radical damage.

Green plant foods

Green plant foods are always conspicuously absent from the diets of people that constantly battle weight problems and lack energy. Green plant foods contain nutrients that optimize our biochemistry in so many ways, they are too numerous to mention in detail. They unlock energy, restore acid-base balance within our blood and tissues, sensitize our muscles to insulin, gently cleanse the gastrointestinal system and support efficient oxygen delivery to cells as well as promote fat loss

Red plant foods 

Tomatoes, capsicum, chillies, cherries, red cabbage, plums, red grapes, red apples, pink grapefruit and watermelon contain the phytonutrient –lycopene which helps to prevent disease in heart and lung tissue.

Berries

In particular, research-proven effects on brain function and protection against cognitive deterioration cannot be denied. The fact is, all types are berry-good, and blueberries are probably the best.

High Quality Whey Protein 

Whey is a dairy protein, separated from milk as part of the cheese making process. Modern extraction methods have made whey one of nature’s true super foods.
