So I am sitting here sipping my banana, strawberry, almond milk smoothie and thinking I should have added some spinach to this. This is a process and I am not perfect by any means...but I am slowly moving to health.

I am a Nutritarian....
A what? A Nutritarian. In my quest for optimal health I am going to do my best to eat only those food that provide me the best nutrients. Eating a nutrient dense diet (Diet is the Latin term for "Way of Life", not a temporary practice to lose weight.) is what I strive for. I am trying to view food as fuel for my body and not entertainment, not out of boredom and not what the multi-billon dollar food industry tells me I should be eating. Here is Dr. Joel Furhman's food pyramid that I am doing my best to follow. I am still heavy on the whole grains and potatoes and trying to incorporate more green and less starchy vegetables.
