A Nutritarian diet meets your nutritional needs by focusing on natural, minimally processed plant foods and turning up the G-BOMBS! Nutritional research demonstrates these foods give us the greatest protection against cancer and other diseases.
G-BOMBS is an acronym for Greens, Beans, Onions, Mushrooms, Berries and Seeds. These are the most health-promoting, anti-cancer superfoods on the planet. Make sure that you include some or all of them in your diet every day.
Greens: Greater consumption of these vegetables is linked to reduced risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease, and a longer life.
Beans: Beans and legumes are rich in fiber and resistant starch, which help keep blood glucose, blood pressure and LDL cholesterol down, and nourish the microbiome.
Onions: Onions and garlic are linked to a reduction in the risk of several cancers, and their distinctive sulfur-containing phytochemicals have a number of actions that benefit the cardiovascular system.
Mushrooms: Mushroom phytochemicals are unique in their promotion of immune system function with powerful anti-cancer benefits.
Berries: Berry phytochemicals have anti-cancer and blood pressure-lowering effects, and are linked to a reduced risk of heart attack.
Seeds: Eating raw seeds and nuts regularly is associated with longevity, reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, common cancers, and a healthy body weight.
The scientific evidence is clear. There are major benefits to moving to a Nutritarian diet.
To compliment the Nutritarian diet, I have created a line of supplements to fill any nutritional gaps. It is imporant to supplement wisely. Your goal is to get adequate amounts of the nutritents not foundoptimally in a plant-based diet – such as vitamins B12 and D, plus the omega-3 fatty acids DHA/EPA – while avoiding potentially harmful ingredients, such as folic acid.
Everyone puts their own twist on their favorite Nutritarian recipes, but here are some staples for your daily line up.
Dessert: Avocado Chocolate Pudding
