RennyBa Has Inspired Me To Write About My Slow Food
If you have been following along, you know I am on a Metablolic Diet. This is a prescribed medical program to aid in the final part of my recovery from an Aquired Brain Injury.
I am enhancing this program with Holistic Nutrician and Hypnotherapy.
This all goes together to set my mind on wellness, to enhance my body systems that were slowed down due to the physical stress the injury caused me.
One cannot escape being medicated for the symptoms of the injury, so it is important to eat a nutritious meal 6 times a day. Two of those meals must be quite large, and be of the highest quality food.
North Americans' diets usually consist of extremely over processed and genetically manipulated foods.
The metabolic diet consists of grains that are not processed chemically, nor are genetically altered. This mean regular flour, sugar, and non-live dairy products are to be avoided, and gluten is kept at a minimum.
Food needs to be considered valuable to the body system as a whole.
Vegetables that can absorb the most free radicals from the soil are avoided. So no vegetable that grows below the ground.
Meat should be lean and organically fed.
As today progresses I will show the food for today's BBQ.
For Carl's 50th celebration I am marinating chicken breast, and pork chops in a hand made tariaki liquid. I am marinading steak in a home made BBQ sauce marinade. The fish is zested with lemon.
There are raw vegetables and tzaziki dip, and a deep green leafy salad.
And a huge bowl of cherries for chatting over.
The only bad boy on the menu is the Birthday Cake. It is partially slow, for it has custard cream in it. (but I did not bake it so the flour is probably regular white pastry flower. And really don't know if I will try any)
For the steadfast Canadians there will be baked potatoes. (I won't be having any, because they are from below the ground)
