ReStart Eating is like pushing the reset button.
After cancer and auto-immune diseases, there were countless attempts at “diets”;
Keto, Paleo, Vegan, Whole30, Juicing, Gut-bio…
How do I take all of the benefits of all?
How do you ReStart your Eating?
ReStart Eating is about something that forces you to change your eating habits. Focussing on pure ingredients, it’s more that just wanting thinner hips, more energy and good gut bacteria.
How do you unlearn your pallet and walk it back to the beginning? How do you wean off sugar and the North American Diet?
You ReStart Eating.
The goal to inspire you restart and create your own unique dishes. While our recipes can incorporate industrial food, we aim for unprocessed and homemade. We recommend sourcing locally when at all possible. Seasonal produce and free-range meats always yield the best flavour. Most of all, we believe they contribute to a healthier ecosystem and a more connected community.
What are the rules? Not many.
Sure, there are restrictions and additions, but they’re not meant to be debilitating. First off, it’s a restart. Eliminating certain commonly aggravating foods is the beginning. Looking into other diet trials; GAPS, Paleo, Whole30, Inflammatory, Detox, Vegan etc. was next. We have found the elements from them, what worked, what didn’t and what makes the most common sense and boost health benefits by eliminating:
- No Sugar
- No starch, flour, rice, potatoes, corn
- No grains or gluten
- No yeast
- No alcohol
- No processed foods
We found that not only are these foods tough to digest, they also upset gut bio-domes and put a strain on organs.
We wanted to stop consuming and restart eating.
Try this for three weeks. Then try it for another three weeks. Go for three months and check how you’re feeing along the way… still hungry? Add more good fats like avocado, olive oil or walnuts. Digestion still not at it’s peak? Remove all dairy or keep only the fermented ones. By three months, you should have a better idea how your body is working and how’s it’s keeping up with this way of eating. Decide if you’d like to re-add foods, like simple grains or legumes. Test it and see how your body reacts. There are no hard and fast rules.
- Eating mindfully
- Making food from scratch
- Eat organic where possible
- Eating majority green leafy, cruciferous and colourful vegetables and berries
- Eat fermented/probiotic foods
- Grass fed/wild meat and fish
- Drink lots of water
Really not too hard. I’ll post the recipes to help you along!
Try bone broths, eggs, soups, salads, and ferments, like kombucha, tibicos (water kefir), kimchi and yogurt.
