The foods that we choose for each meal are based on the rules of eating 40% Carbohydrates, 30% Lean Proteins, and 30% favorable fats. Within those categories, we focus on foods that are low on the Glycemic Index and/or have an overall low Glycemic Load. In addition to using only fresh, all natural ingredients, we cut out all chemical preservatives and added sodium that lead to hypertension, high blood pressure and increased risk of heart attack and stroke.
By eating 40% Carbohydrates that are low in glycemic load, you experience the feeling of being full, while not overwhelming your body with simple sugars that can be broken down and stored as fat. These foods include: melon, apples, kiwi, asparagus, green beans, and others that can be found by researching low glycemic fruits and vegetables.
We choose high quality, lean proteins which are all natural and do not contain any added hormones or chemicals. These include all white meat chicken and turkey breast, pork tenderloin, flank and top sirloin beef, salmon, tuna, and many others. Whenever possible and available, we buy free-range chicken and grass fed beef from our local farmers.
We use mono-unsaturated bases such as olive oil and sesame oil. You will find them in our homemade sauces and dressings, as well as our cooking oils. Other sources of favorable fats include the natural fats found in the proteins, soy butter, and dairy items. One of the main reasons we use mono-unsaturated fats is due to the fact that they help increase HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) and decrease LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol).
