I’ve been binge listening to DeliciousElla podcast during my morning runs. There was an episode about gut health that got me interested. It says we need to consume 30+ type of plant source of food per week to have a diverse healthy gut. I wonder how many do I consume. So I think I’ll challenge myself to eat as varied food as possible for a week and record them to see if I can hit 30.
Yesterday I took day off from work and had a slow morning. While cooking lunch, I made breakfast waffle for the family.
We got fresh vegetable delivered on Wednesday so I had a large salad as part of lunch
with carrot ginger dressing. last time I made using fresh ginger but run out yesterday and used powder and it was not as good
a while after lunch I felt I need something more substantial, so had few of these pancakes with almond butter
had watermelon for snack and dinner was two parts. Part 1 was stir fry rice with mixed vegetables and tofu with tons of nutritional yeast and black pepper.
part 2 was baked pumpkin with cinnamon
after dinner, daddy make crab apple just for fun
Type of whole food consumed
- almond butter
- purple cabbage
- coconut flour (in pancake)
- green pea
- brown rice
wooo! 18 already! While a lot of these are my staples, I think hitting 30 won’t be too hard for a week challenge. Can’t wait to try new food tomorrow.
