In MY Kitchen
I have clients, friends, family, neighbors ask quite frequently, “What do you use?” “What do you keep stocked in your house?” “What kind do you buy?”
If you follow my blog or know me at all, you know that I do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach to nutrition. What works for me, may not work for you or the person next to you. This is why diets DO NOT work. This is why I take the time to get to know my clients and figure out what works for each one individually.
I heard it best described in a podcast that I listened to the other day – my job is similar to that of a nutrition/health/wellness CIS investigator. You (my client) presents me with the evidence (your story and health history) and I use the tools I have to solve the crime (what is wreaking havoc in your body).
However, there are certain foods that do benefit most people and I keep stocked in my pantry. This is my list – not the list for the kids – that is a separate blog post. If you are ready to go shopping, here it is:
- organic peanut butter, almond butter, and sunflower seed butter
- raw nuts (almonds, pecans, walnuts, pistachios, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds)
- chia seeds
- cacao nibs
- ground flaxseed
- raw cacao powder
- dark chocolate (85%) – yes, I LOVE chocolate
- coconut flour
- quality protein powder
- bars (RX Bars and Raw Rev Glo Bars)
- organic black beans
- organic garbanzo beans
- Rao’s jarred sauce
- canned organic diced tomatoes
- organic brown rice
- canned coconut milk
I am a HUGE fan of Trader Joe’s and Costco 🙂 Be careful though. Always check your ingredients! Just because you buy something at a healthier chain or specialty food store, does not mean it is good for you.
Happy shopping 😉 If you are interested in what is in my fridge/freezer or the kids’ side of the pantry…send me a message or leave a comment.
