Healing for the Body, Mind, Emotion, and Spirit

Let’s hear it for UltraWellness!

Monday will be the first day of our three-week eating plan, based on Phase I of Dr. Mark Hyman’s UltraMetabolism diet.  The initial three-week, detox phase of Dr. Hyman’s diet is designed to reduce inflammation and food allergies, which results in the body losing weight naturally.  Looking on pages 243-247 at the food choices listed as the “Foods to Enjoy” during this phase, I have decided on the following grocery list for the first week:

Apples
Avocado
Banana
Grapes
Olives, Black
Pear
Strawberries
Watermelon

Bell pepper
Broccoli
Cabbage
Carrots
Celery
Cucumber
Garlic
Kale
Romaine Lettuce
Mushrooms
Onions
Parsley, flat
Pumpkin
Radishes
Spinach
Tomatoes

Amaranth
Brown rice
Wild rice
Oats (*Dr. Hyman warns that oats may be cross-contaminated with gluten, so I’m buying only Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Whole Grain RolledOats from the health food store.)

Black beans
Cannellini beans
Great northern beans
Kidney beans
Navy beans
Tofu

Salmon, wild
Striped bass, farmed bay
Chicken, skinless white breast meat
Turkey, skinless white breast meat
Cornish hen
Lamb (loin)

Almonds
Cashews
Coconut, fresh -or- Coconut, unsweetened dried
Pecans
Pine nuts
Pumpkin seeds
Sunflower seeds
Walnuts
Almond butter

Coconut oil
Flaxseeds (ground)
Olive oil (extra virgin)
Sesame seed oil (plain or toasted)

Filtered water
Green tea, decaffeinated
Herbal tea

Broths, low-sodium organic (vegetable and chicken)
Chocolate, dark, minimum 70% cocoa
Cocoa powder
Pepper, black and white
Salsa
Sea salt
Soy sauce, low-sodium and gluten-free

Dr. Hyman’s list of “Foods to Enjoy” during the three-week detox phase is more than twice as long as what I have listed here.   These are simply my choices for week #1.

Tomorrow I’ll list my menus for Monday of Week #1.

If you have decided to join me, happy shopping!  :-)
