It seems only fair that given the number of recommendations I have for others when it comes to their diet, that I would be willing to share what I eat regularly.
Being a naturopath has certain advantages – one being that I have a lot of knowledge about nutrition. In my case, I’m also lucky to be able to grow a lot of my own fruits and vegetables.
I tend only to eat high flavonoid apples. I don’t eat commercial apples because they are hybrids that tasteless and full of sugar.
The fruit I eat is organic. The only spray I use in the yard is neem oil. Apart from that, I use no other kinds of sprays.
I grow several other plants that make up an important part of my diet. I grow garlic, avocados, cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussel sprouts, bell peppers, and sweet corn. I also grow a wide selection of herbs. My garden includes about 15 different medicinal herbs and ten different culinary herbs. Berries are a regular part of my diet, and I grow a variety of species on my property.
When it comes to my diet, my philosophy is to cook from scratch. I’ve been doing that for forty years.

In the morning, I have steel-cut oats cooked in filtered water with Manuka honey and berries.
For lunch, I usually make a stir-fry with vegetables and either tofu or free-range organic chicken. In the afternoon, I’ll have avocado if I get hungry, but I don’t usually snack on any food during the day at all.
Our evening meal varies but generally includes a lean protein and lots of vegetables.
I drink about four glasses of water a day. I will typically have two or three cups of herbal tea in the morning. I grow teas as well, including lemon balm and peppermint. I love peppermint tea, so I’ll often have that.
I rarely drink coffee. I drink maybe one or two cups of black tea per day with some honey. In the summer, I drink fresh water that is chlorine and fluoride-free. I have an alcoholic drink a maximum of two times a week, but usually just once. I believe that alcohol should be used sparingly to maintain good gut health.
