Of course, then I usually add some kale how’d. I get that Kayla here. Alright, then usually add some onions. Add some celery. Now you can add, as many or as little as you want to. I pretty much have an understanding of what I like and how I like it to taste. So you may want to tweak and play with this form in a little bit so that you can get it to the way that you, like it add some ginger. I, like a lotta ginger all right, then apples, I usually add a good bit of Apple, so break it up, so that either your nutribullet ninja or your blender in general is able to get to it then usually just squeeze in some life.

This will really help with the taste. I promise you so the last thing is you got to add water, don’t add any juice or anything like that. Stick to water, because we’re trying to make this sugar free. I know you saw that it’s okay, I makes mistakes. All right, then you just put in the nutribullet and away we go. That’s it so afterwards. Unscrew this give the support all right so bottoms up. Now, if you remember oh, I got me a monster tree.

Sorry as it gives you a little bit of a mustache, so now, if you remember I went on a cruise, I came back from the cruise. I came like six pounds. I know very talked about this and I went on a detox diet. This was my king. Talk today, I did eat normal foods. I just ain’t better. I eat more salads, just like I could now, but what I included was this remedy here this, how it we significantly reduced weight.

Eating For Longevity: Health Boosting Staples of The Italian Diet

Now I know what you’re thinking, what about that pizza and pasta? Isn’t it loaded with lectins sure, but pizza and pasta aren’t the only things Italians eat? That’s like assuming all weed is cheeseburgers. The truth is, the Italian diet is actually made up of some of the healthiest things on the planet and today I want to walk you through just a few of those olives and olive oil.

You know how much I love olive oil. I’ve done a whole article on it. After all, it’s great for your heart, health, your brain, your immune system and even your weight. Now the Italians make some of the best olive oils on the planet and eat plenty of it too. Whenever I’m in Italy, I love the chance to sample the local olive oils, the range and flavors from the grassy and spicy buttery is amazing. How about wild caught seafood? Italy’s got water on three sides.

So it’s no surprise that seafood is a mainstay of the Italian diet and wild caught seafood, including fish shellfish, shrimp. Lobster mussels and even squid and octopus are incredible for your health and don’t forget anchovies and sardines thanks to their lean protein and, most importantly, their high omega-3 content. Shrimp even have an added bonus if you eat the shells, you’re consuming one of nature’s lectin blockers and don’t worry, the shells are completely edible.

They just add a little bit of texture to the mix. Now, how about leafy greens, it seems like there’s always a plate of dark polyphenol, rich leafy greens on the table in Italy, sometimes they’re raw drizzled in balsamic, vinegar and olive oil, sometimes they’re braised for hours and all oil and garlic until they’re, practically falling apart and Anyway, they make them they’re too delicious to resist, and since they play such a key role in your health and keeping those gut bugs happy, why resist at all? Now how about red wine? Let me be clear: I am not telling you to go crazy and drink.

A bottle of red wine every night and if you’re not a drinker, please don’t start on my account, but a small florida. Six ounce glass at night is actually pretty good for your health, thanks in part to a polyphenol called resveratrol and resveratrol is linked to a huge number of health benefits. It’s got anti-inflammatory properties, antiviral properties and it’s even connected to heart and brain health, so feel free to pour yourself a toast to good health.

But remember a four to six ounce is not a big pour. It looks something like this. The easy way to remember is that there’s six ounces, four of them in every bottle, so for six ounce servings we’ll make a bottle of wine. That’s not much! How about garlic and onions? When I read Italian recipes, they almost always seem to start with garlic, onions or a mixture of the both cooked in olive oil and that’s fantastic both when it comes to flavor and when it comes to your health.

You see. Garlic and onions are chock-full of polyphenols and they’re pretty high in sulfur too, and sulfur helps build strong muscles, keep your veins and arteries healthy and even help your skin look great now, along with these five staple ingredients, the Italian diet is also rich and a few Other foods that are incredible for your health nuts, especially hazelnuts, walnuts, pistachios and pine nuts fresh herbs like basil, parsley and oregano pasture-raised eggs, actual pasture-raised eggs, the italian eggs have almost reddish yolks they’re, so rich, also important to note the foods that are missing from the Typical Italian diet, or that are often eaten an extreme moderation, I’m talking about things like meat, especially highly processed foods, meat.

That’s not pasture raised tons of dairy or any dairy with the casein a1 protein. You know. All in all, the Italian diet is a good prescription for health and a great way to make sure you’re eating delicious meals that satisfy you and your gut bugs I’m dr.

I had to split the pot, but that’s fine. It was a really fun time, but I also had my first unplanned cheat meal, so I knew there was going to be pizza and everything – and I was like: oh no, I’m not going to eat, I’m going to be fine, but as the night went on it Became clear that I was like nah, I’m doing this, I’m hanging with the crew and I’m going to enjoy it.

So that’s what I did. There was Pizza Hut. There was brownies, there was caramel corn, there were fries, I mean, and it was delicious, like you know, hashtag no regrets. The thing is. If you also read my weigh-ins once you should um, you know that I weigh in on the first of the month. So that means February 1st is coming up on Thursday, but I’ve been doing like quasi weigh-ins. You know for throughout the month and honestly, I’m still at the exact same weight like I’ve lost no weight whatsoever, which I mean coming off a 15 pound loss for December.

Like I get it, you know, I’m not too upset weight, loss is linear or weight loss is not linear, I’m still making great progress. So I was just like this. Cheat is not like it’s going to derail any other progress. I’ve made for January cuz. I haven’t made it, you know now it wasn’t ideal, but at the same time you know I’m not letting it faze me. It’s not throwing me off track, I’m right back on today.

I’m going to go really hard today, so Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, see if we can get anything off for Thursday, but I mean even the fact that I’ve been able to maintain this whole month like 178 pounds.

Then we just have that random pulled pork and that bacon and cheese fried rice that I’ve just made up off the top of my head, and that is so good. Next we got my trail mix, then we have the keto connect chocolates, like I said I put them into the mini mold, so they come out in like little tabs and they are so good they’re, like my new favorite thing ever in fact, I think I’m just Going to go ahead and eat this one quality control, it’s chocolate in it’s a little salty, it’s a melty!

WHAT I EAT IN A DAY for a HEALTHY Weight Loss (vegan)

But it’s really hard because the clouds kidding I mean the Sun gets in and out of the clouds and it keeps getting really dark and it keeps getting really bright and this is really a struggle. You know the Monday morning, Jay King, but yeah, welcome to new weather eat. In a day it’s been a while. I haven’t done one of those today I want to thank life Sam for partnering with me on this article, which is a nutrition tracking app.

If you haven’t seen the latest article that I’ve posted on my blog, I talked about kind of my health problems that I went through during 2019 and I basically told you about my weight gain. I told you about the fact that I lost my natural appetite cues and I stopped intuitive eating for that matter. Anyways like I, really encourage you to check out that article. If you want to know more of why I started tracking what I eat, so I’m so excited for this partnership, because I started using Lifeson before this collaboration.

So it’s just really nice because I get to talk to you about an app that I really really am using and I find really cool. I also told you about this in my latest article, but I am doing a cure of vitamin, and so each morning I’m inside ok with one two three pills: this is a brand that I’ve been using. It’s definitely not sponsored, but it’s just work. This is a probiotic. This is for my liver problems, and this is for my skin.

I just have that with water. That’s the first thing I have in the morning. Is it really a surprise? If I tell you that I have oatmeal in the morning, I think not I have bananas need to be eaten. I think so. I’m going to have one in there mashed, so using a banana is really good because it helps to sweeten the oatmeal without adding sugar blueberries, approximately 70 grams bout, half a cup, a cup blueberries.

This gets really beautiful, nice, nice, nice, adding frozen blueberries, really helps to cool down the preparation, so that is like really good temperature for the tummy to eat. It’s not good to eat frozen food and it’s not good to eat hot food. So this is kind of the perfect temperature, so yogurt tablespoon 10 grams mix. That again together. Look at that. This is where things have been changing from me.

Add just a couple of getting the calash pepitas. This is really really interesting. This is pumpkin seeds, flour and it’s really rich in protein, so I just add, like a tablespoon of it, just adding that tahini teaspoon not too much. If you know I’m ready to have my breakfast now, let’s just see what like some says about this breakfast, I’m going to add breakfast now. I could do one by one everything, but because it’s a meal that I know works really well and is really balanced.

I have saved it to my favorite and this is a premium feature, but basically I just go to meals and it’s called the perfect oatmeal. This is not the calories, it has. The perfect oatmeal one serving has everything that I’ve just put to my oatmeal track, and if I come back, okay done there, it is 430 calories, I’m actually going to add some chia seeds. That’s not in my recipe. I have added seven today: five, not even four grams: that’s it total breakfast, perfect, healthy, liver protein, healthy liver clubs, healthy little fat, rich in fiber calories and track everything’s.

In tracked, honestly, I was very surprised when I started using this app and I was inputting my normal breakfast. I thought that was really healthy, but I realize how unbalanced it was, and I have enough protein and the facts were way too high. And so I’m really happy because I think of it with the app and see like what breakfast would taste good and be very well-balanced, and this is it. This is a perfect oatmeal, so yeah.

I really encourage you to download this app and just check if your current breakfast is like balanced lunch time. I kind of want to try a new recipe today and see if that works out. I have something in my mind, but I don’t know if it’s going to work, but if it does, I think it’s going to be a good recipe. I want to do the idea of an omelet but obviously vegan, I’m going to use a potato carrot. Some broccoli, some cauliflower and then I’m like the doll ways: chickpea, flour, rice, flour, so meal, something like that in dough.

So that’s the plan. Now, let’s do it expectations vs. Reality? Oh well, it’s definitely not what I wanted yeah. This is my lunch. So basically, all I did was editing articles on my computer. It’s pretty gloomy outside it’s pretty cold. It’s pretty moody, doing a little break out of the computer. I am going to make myself some chai latte with soy milk, very simple recipes that I have my ebook and after that I think I’ll just work a little bit more, my computer and then I will work out and then what do I have planned? Yes, I need to think about a new class for the week yoga class for dinner.

I decided to make a recipe out of the remaining things that I had in my fridge, which were vegetables and some red rice that I had cooked a few days ago. So I start to chop my shallots, my mushrooms, everything that needs to be chopped, and I start to heat that up in a pan using no oil, because I don’t find that it’s really useful. I use a little bit of curry, spice mixed that well and when it started to cook I add the zucchini again mix that well and then once it’s reduced a little bit, I add my cooked rice, not too long.

This is really the last step of the recipe I add a full can of coconut milk, and that makes it really creamy. It’s like a little risotto, but obviously very short in time, and I finish with the greens, broccoli, because greens really don’t need to be cooked for a lot of time. As I mentioned, this recipe makes two serves, so what I did is I split it in half and on the ad I entered my new recipe for two serves.

What I really like is this little feature. You can scan pretty much anything. It finds everything it’s incredible and then I added the remaining ingredients and I also decided to top it with some nutritional yeast dinner is served, so it smells amazing. I love it. I’m going to check with you so the app basically says I’ve eaten a bit too much fat and that’s just basically because of the coconut I’m going to put that down before it.

It’s just because of the coconut milk that I put a lot off. I don’t eat coconut milk every day, so that’s totally fine. Overall, I think the day is pretty balanced and for now I just think that this will fill me up and I won’t be hungry after. If I really feel the need to eat, I will eat. I will not like let this app dictate my eating, but it’s a really good way for me to kind of realize what I’ve been eating and I like that.

The focus is not just on calories, and it gives you a lot of tips on how to make your meals more balanced. It gives you recipes and stuff. If you go premium, you have like a lot more choice and also it’s great because it tracks the activities that I have in my Apple read so yeah. It kind of puts it into the calories that I kind of need for my day, which is great. You see like I am really fine using that kind of app and I’m like I’ve, never had an eating disorder.

I just want to say – and I probably should have said that at the start of this article, but I just want to say that I don’t think it’s healthy to track what you’re eating. If you have trouble with food, if you have some sort of eating disorder, as I told you in the previous article, I’m trying to lose weight, and I’m also trying to regain my natural appetite, because I lost a sense of what each food bringing me.

Because of our mental issues, and so for me, it’s really helpful. I think it teaches my body again what’s the value of each food and it teaches me a lot about how my meals are actually balanced or not, but yeah. I know that I’m able to take some step back from it all I wanted to say I really don’t want to promote something that would make your health indenter otherwise like if you’re fine with eating, and you just have a like a little goal or you just Want to eat healthier.

I think this is a really really good way to do it. It’s very easy to use didn’t take a lot of time. It’s really nicely integrated, but yeah. This is my day of eating. I hope you enjoyed and I will leave all the recipes in the description box below. I can’t wait to eat this and I’ll see you guys really soon. Bye,


A new kind of pumpkin seed snack! Roasted by two men.
