Eating for a Healthier Me
Fruits takes the least amount of time to digest, so I eat it first thing in the morning. Since I started doing this I have found that my digest system runs a lot smoother. After my fruit, I have a veggie sandwich, my favorite is cucumbers, tomatoes, greens, with Vegenaise on Ezekiel bread. I also enjoy bowls of vegetable soup, yes even in the summer.Vegetables also digest at a fast rate, and if you want to have a salad with veggies and fruit, you are good to go.
Now because I do love meat and refuse to give it up I eat it for the last meal of the day. I have also cut back on portion size, except for fish. Fish is the fastest digesting meat it only takes 30-60 minutes depending on the type. As a matter of fact on Sundays for breakfast the southern man cooks up a bunch of Swai. Swai is a catfish from Thailand and is more tender than the catfish from the States. We love it with capers, yeah we eat fish for breakfast, and it is so good.
Do you eat veggie sandwiches? What is your favorite?
