Seems easy....right?


Mindset: Supportive vs. Unsupportive foods

What are supportive foods?

❤️ Supportive foods move you closer to your health goals

❤️ Unsupportive foods can impair your progress. Individuals have different goals and unique bodies, so everyone’s list of supportive foods might be a little different.

For example: for me, I'm sensitive to dairy: Therefore, dairy isn’t a supportive choice for me or someone who is lactose intolerant and wants to improve their digestion. Also, I find that dairy hinders or slows my weight loss efforts

❤️I like to coach my clients to say “supportive” and “unsupportive” instead of “good” and “bad.” Labeling foods as “bad” leads to guilt and shame if you slip up by eating those foods. Shame isn’t part of the Primal eating plan. Also, it can make them more tempting.

❤️~ can you relate ~❤️

❤️Likewise, we strongly prefer to say “supportive/unsupportive” instead of “allowed/not allowed.”

You are ALLOWED to eat whatever you want

❤️ You are CHOOSING foods that are consistent with your goals ❤️

❤️ Protein: meat, poultry, fish, eggs

❤️ Plants: Leafy greens, plentiful of vegetables

❤️ Healthy fats (organic dairy, avocado oil, olive oil) etc..

❤️ Dairy - if tolerated

❤️ Nuts in moderation
