Please remember to eat three healthy meals a day around the same times each day. This is important so your body has a continuous flow of energy. Please do not eat anything after the sun goes down. Night eating can cause kidney and liver stones, insomnia, a weak immune system and nervous disorders.
I have listed some healthy meal suggestions below. This is not a comprehensive guide. Feel free to use my suggestions as a “starting point,” from which you can either add or subtract, depending on how you feel. A great book to check out if you want to maximize nutrients for each meal is Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon and Mary Enig.
*Fruits and Vegetables – There is no limit on fruits and vegetables that you can eat during the course of the day. Feel free to juice them, eat them raw, or cooked. Just be aware that it is best to eat fruits alone. Fruits digest a lot quicker and should be eaten ½ hour prior to a large meal or 2 hours after a meal.

**If you like having your main or heaviest meal at lunchtime, switch the dinner with the lunch suggestions.
***If you are extremely busy and do not have a lot of time to cook, invest in a crockpot. This way, you can put everything in it before you head out the door in the morning and come home to a home-cooked meal. There is no need to be Susie Homemaker……
