Simple plant-based food plan

We are 20 Days into our Lean, Fit & Strong online body & mind sculpting program and it is going great! This is the simple plant-based food plan I recommend for better health, weight management, faster metabolism, stronger digestion & more energy. (click here for more info on the next program)

Yasmin’s Simple Plant-Based Food Plan –  the main principles

It’s kind of a system. 

  1. Routine: 3 meals + 2 snacks + water & herbal tea = awesome for digestion & energy – Eating at the same time daily and limiting the variety of food you eat trains your body & digestive system.
  2. Choose whole foods vs packaged food: Fresh fruit & veggies, high quality first cold-pressed oils, seeds, super foods,
    whole grains (low or no gluten), lentils, organic eggs (& meat) –  Instead of counting calories, count nutrients!
  3. Plant-based: For good health, make 80-90% of your diet plant-based;
  4. Replace the following:
    • Dairy from cows (hard to metabolize) –> Goat & sheep milk / cheese (easier to digest), almond milk, coconut milk, rice cheese, etc.;
    • Wheat (inflammatory) –> Kamut, Quinoa, Rice;
    • White sugar (garbage for you) –>  Maple syrup, small amounts of dried fruit.
  5. Don’t drink calories unless you make the juice yourself (and even then dilute juice by half); Drink plenty of water, herbal tea between meals; (The occasional glass of wine or cup of coffee is ok as long as you don’t depend on it daily);
  6. Take time to eat: Focus & enjoy! This alone will solve 75% of your health issues.
