I forgot to write about another little quote from Primal Feast that I just loved. Someone was writing about some centarians in Japan, asking what was their secret to their long lives. Their reply was something like, "Everyone knows you should eat 31 different foods everyday." I'm actually shooting for this. Although currently, I have cold and all I want is broth and orange juice.
So far, today's variety has been:
bread (nut based...sprouted)
That isn't nearly enough...mmmm...
If you count the whole food supplements I take... they would boost my count -- blueberry, turmeric, 3 or 4 different kinds of mushrooms, basil, and several other whole food based anti-oxidents. Does wine count? I'm drinking a glass of red wine right now with dinner (a salad with roasted root veggies...) The salad dressing has olive oil, balsamic, maple syrup, mustard and garlic in it... Do those count?
IF everything counts, then I'm up to 30 or 31. But, for those interested in this topic and wishing to encourage variety in our omnivorous diets, help me establish some ground rules and we can move forward from there.
