The term mono-diet refers to a type of eating that eliminates all but one food. The originators of this diet professed that one food, to the exclusion of all others, can cure the body by virtue of avoiding all types of irritants or toxins that might be intolerable to our bodies. There is a very interesting article about this at Livestrong.com http://www.livestrong.com/article/509940-mono-diet/

A variation of the mono-diet is more interesting and better for you. Being healthy means eating a variety of foods. The modified mono-diet means that you find what works great for your body, food that you really enjoy, that is varied, and eat it over and over.

This is incredibly simple and you never have to think about food until you are hungry. You don’t have to spend any energy on trying to decide what you want.

I will share with you the modified mono-diet I am currently following. This would most likely be different than yours. The whole point is to find what your body thrives on. There will come a day when I may tire of the sameness, but I am months and months into this and I am enjoying the simplicity, predictability, and efficacy of this. If I do decide to change someday, I will do that naturally, possibly switching to a differently modified mono-diet. And so can you.

Every morning for breakfast I have one hard-boiled egg, a slice or small bowl of seasonal fruit, and a piece of multi-grain, flourless, seed/flax bread with almond butter and unsweetened blueberry or strawberry jam.

Every day for lunch I have a protein shake with fiber and fresh or frozen seasonal fruit. The meal replacement and fiber I prefer are called Nutrimeal and Fibergy respectively. I add unsweetened almond milk and unsweetened coconut water, and some ice.

For dinner, I make a variety of veggies and some protein in the form of nuts and seeds, beans, or tofu. That can be a fresh salad with some nuts, steamed veggies, and pesto. The variety is endless.

Your body might love you back for this stress-less approach to good nutrition. If you would like some assistance in identifying a good, sustainable, modified mono-diet, feel free to contact me or visit https://rosiebank.com/health-coaching/.
