I have just got back from shopping - in preparation for tomorrow ( actually i am starting tonight)
Here are some shopping tips:
- I buy already prepared salads e.g - pk of the following; baby spinach + mixed lettuce + Asian salad (stir fry ) mix + sprouts.
- Vegetables; sweet potatoe, pumpkin, cellery, red beets (beetroot), carrots, brocolli, beans, spinach, bok choy, ( think green...) etc etc
- mixed fruits in season - here in Western Australia - it is summer so Water melon/rock melon, apples, bananas, stone fruit (although these are high GI) so if thinking of weight loss you should not have too many of them and stick to low GI fruits.
- Seasonings ( the folowing are extracts from my new book - 'Daniels Diet Recipe Guide')
Celtic sea salt
Green curry paste
Miso (Kome or Genmal)
Organic Tamari Soy Sauce (all natural, all purpose, wheat free soy
Organic Herb Seasoning – e.g. Vogel “Herbamare”
Soup Stock – no MSG, additive free stock powder (Vogel vegetable)
Massel veggie stock
- If you need help sourcing anything– go to your nearest health store, they will give you assistance.
- Dried herbs and spices
Cayenne (red) pepper
Ground or fresh ginger
Peppercorns green and black
- Oils and vinegarsApple Cider Vinegar
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
White Vinegar (to wash your fruit and vegetables)
- Nuts (unsalted) and dried fruit
Almonds (blanched or whole)
- Dried fruit often contains sulphur to enhance the color of the dried product. Seek organic sun-dried fruit, which is also sulphur- free. This is especially important if you experience any respiratory challenges such as asthma.
- You’ll find a wonderful selection of frozen stir-fry vegetable mixes in the freezer section of your local supermarket. Make sure you choose the ones with no added sauces. The store will also have bags of prepared raw stir-fry vegetables in the fresh food section, add more colours yourself if needed. Choose fresh foods where possible, however frozen are good as a second choice and for convenience. To avoid plastic contamination, I recommend you mix your own from the loose choices available, i.e. bag up your own.
Feel free to use variety and what is in season in your locality is best, also what you personaly prefer to have. Organic is best but not vital, just do the best you can, its all good.
All the best and talk to you tomorrow
