What are 3 ways you think you can increase the amount of nutrients you consume in a day?
The menu above is one of my own personal menus, and I share it to give you an idea of the foods to incorporate into your diet. Most importantly in this menu though is the lack of refined sugars and processed foods which deplete your body of vital nutrients. The only sweeteners I use are honey, maple syrup,and very sparingly whole cane sugar. I make all of my bread products, mainly through the process of sourdough to make nutrients more available. Water kefir, kombucha, and fresh milk
should be the drinks of choice during meals.
