Health food is easy, and not so expensive
IN clinic, we are finding many patients are overwhelmed about what to eat and how, if, or when to apply the latest ‘superfoods’.
As a result, there seems to be an awful lot of ‘superfoods’ just sitting around in a lot of pantries - unopened, half eaten, trialed and forgotten!
Does this sound like you?
Are you overwhelmed by all the latest ‘superfoods’?
Have friends or your naturopath given some great sounding diet advice that you want to take, but instead you walked away feeling too tired or overwhelmed to try that new recipe?
Or do you come into your appointment wanting to make a healthy change, but realising you just don’t have the time or skills to create a new menu?
Whilst we love the concept of food as medicine, we are less into expensive trendy fashion foods.
We simply like to ramp up our recipes with medicinal herbs and spices and combine wholefoods in traditionally nourishing ways.
Over the winter months we like the idea of starting the day with spiced Porridge and ending the day with a spiced hot chocolate.
For lunch maybe a lentil dahl or vegetarian shiitake mushroom broth?
The adventurous foodies can now find these recipes emerging on our Instagram or Facebook page.
But, if reading a recipe, buying 6 different spices and then coking them still sounds too hard or overwhelming, don’t worry, we have your back!
Pop in and grab one of the ready made packs so you can try a single serve of ‘food as medicine’ that is as easy to make and buy as a uni student pasta.
And there won’t be a whole lots of ‘once used’, half eaten, and then forgotten superfoods left in the back of your pantry!
FOOD AS MEDICINE: Aim for simple nutrition in your eating rather than chasing the latest ‘superfood’.
