Omit all animal products from your diet including dairy, cheese, eggs and meats. The small amounts of protein found in peanut butter, grains and legumes are sufficient, healthier and more easily digested.
Choose a light grilled cheese, tuna salad or egg salad sandwich for lunch if animal products are desired. Animal products are very expensive. Eat them sparingly and purchase them only if you have a little extra money.
Drink only water. Omit all other beverages including coffee, tea, soda, fruit juice and alcohol.
Cook a large pot of soup and rewarm for two other meals.
Cook a large amount of rice, legumes and veggies and rewarm for two other meals.
Cook and rewarm your food at a low temperature to retain nutrients.
Mix the rice, legumes and veggies together or place each item separately on your plate to create a variety in flavor.
While at work or overnight, cook legumes in a slow cooker or crockpot for extra savings.
Occasionally, replace brown rice with whole grain pasta, adding cabbage, onions, legumes and veggies to your dish as before.
Choose veggies that are rich and deep in color, such as the dark orange of a carrot, the deep green of swiss chard or the dark purple of a red cabbage as they are richer in nutrients.
Preferably, omit nightshades, such as eggplant, potatoes, tomatoes, green peppers, zucchini, etc as these create an unhealthy acidic PH.
Preferably, eat bread three days after it has been baked with yeast. Live yeast creates an unhealthy acidic PH.
Wean to this simple diet gradually to help shrink your stomach and grow accustomed to a smaller intake.
Gradually eat two meals a day or half a sandwich at lunch, if desired.
If hungry between meals, eat a piece of whole grain toast with a small amount of margarine.
Eat fruits sparingly and purchase them only if you have a little extra money.
