Monday Morning Mantra (MMM)


This will keep you motivated during our CLEANSE. NOURISH. FLOURISH month! It's a quote kept short and sweet by Michael Pollan* (journalist & food activist), and is straight to the point:

'Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants,'

It's a fabulous foundation to build your lifestyle around & it encompasses my simple life long food philosophy.... Don't get hung up on diets (raw food, sugar free, no fructose) etc, rather 1. Eat CLEAN (unprocessed/organic where possible) foods & make at least 4/5 of your plate from PLANTS. (F&V, grains, seeds, nuts etc) 2. Learn to SWAP with more nourishing, nutrient dense equivalents (ie. swap refined wheat flour with spelt/buckwheat/coconut etc, white sugar with panela/rapadura sugar, or Canola (rape seed) oil with olive, nut or coconut oil) 3. Have lots of VARIETY. 4. In MODERATION! Have a beauty-full week! ********* * Michael Pollan is author of these food books.. 2001: The Botany of Desire: 2006: The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals 2007: Unhappy Meals 2008: In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto ( It was number one on the New York Times Non-Fiction Best Seller List for six weeks.) 2009: Food Rules: An Eater's Manual -Original image from Girl With A Nikon.
