So, it's time for me to go on a diet again, soon, this time of year.
Last year, I tried the paleolithic diet http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paleolithic_diet and the year before last it was Gandhi's diet. http://health.india.com/topics/mahatma-gandhi-diet/
What to try this year?
I asked a friend and she mentioned the unprocessed food diet, which suits me just fine.
We are what we eat, and there's a lot of unprocessed foods to choose from, such as:
Avocado, azuki beans, broccoli, chia seeds, coffee, dal http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dal , dates http://www.datesaregreat.com/health-nutrition/ , eggs, feta cheese (natural sheep and goat milk cheese,) figs, garbanzo beans (hummus,) hemp seeds, honey, kiwi, lemon, lime, milk, mushrooms, nuts (Brazil nuts, almonds, walnuts,) olive oil, onions, papayas, pears, polenta, quinoa, rhubarbs, salmon sashimi, snow pea shoots, spinach, tea, tomatoes, ugli fruit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ugli_fruit , unprocessed raw sugar, vegan cheesecake, wild rice, Xmas soups http://mubi.com/lists/twelve-days-of-christmas , yam, yoghurt, zabaglione http://h2g2.com/dna/h2g2/alabaster/A10357661 http://www.emikodavies.com/blog/zabaione-sweet-and-easy/ http://www.emikodavies.com/blog/zabaione-sweet-and-easy/
Detoxing http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/detox-diets/AN01334 is the idea, I guess. The list is not exhaustive, of course, and I may have to adjust recipes keeping in mind that what's good for your heart is also good for your brain. (Exceptions allowed for birthday cakes!)
