Things were starting to look up, feeding myself wasn’t going to be difficult at all. As I said previously I had lasagna servings in my freezer, I could go to the local grocery store and get sushi or I can have 100% grass fed and grass finished beef (usually grilled with my secret rub), along with my favorite, sautéed mushrooms and onions. I could grill pasture raised chicken and have that with a salad, I can make a stir fry with various delicious veggies and add chicken or wild caught shrimp. I can pan seer Sea Scallops (500° pan and 50 seconds on each side using this) and put them on a bed of previously refrigerated rice or pasta and use lots of butter and some lemon as a sauce. Lunches are very easy, I could have tunafish (use Avocado Mayo with Horseradish mustard ) on a bed of greens or just spring mix with blue cheese and Olive oil and Balsamic Vinegar for a dressing. Through in a hard boiled egg and voila. Restaurant quality meals that are easy to do with no special cooking skills involved.
Here are the things to keep in mind! You can’t use too much olive oil but what you should know is you cook with regular olive oil and finish with Extra Virgin Olive oil. The Virgin olive oil breaks down in high heat so don’t use it to cook but use in your salad dressing.
Here are the caveats –
Eating clean means eating clean so chicken or eggs that say “organic” or “no antibiotics” or “vegetarian diet” or “cage free” are not the chickens you are looking for (trying to use my Jedi mind trick here). I use Mary’s Pasture raised chicken parts (thighs, wings and breasts). Likewise, bison, beef, and pork should say pasture raised but if not at least Grass fed Grass finished or 100% grass fed. Fish & other seafood should NOT BE FARMED! It should all say “WILD” or “Wild Caught” All Veggies should be organic especially spinach! If you must drink milk use only A2 milk (it’s a genetic thing) and all cheeses should be European because that is where you find the A2 cows. For snacks I eat Lindt 85% Cocoa Dark Chocolate and Dry Roasted Macadamia Nuts with Sea salt. They make a delicious pairing. You can’t eat too much dark chocolate and you are supposed to get most of your fat from nuts like pistachios or macadamia or almonds, etc. IMPORTANT NOTE! Peanuts are NOT NUTS! They are legumes so don’t eat them. Almond butter is a good substitute for peanut butter!
All of this is explained in the book and in Dr. Gundry’s videos, my goal is to give you a jump start here, to motivate you to read the book “The Plant Paradox” , and start you on a path toward changing your life.
