Leaky Gut Syndrome – Part 4

Foundation for Health Food Plan

A basic diet of vegetables, fruits and whole grains provides a foundation that can be applied to any health condition. It promotes healing and offers good balanced nutrition.

The following guidelines can be used for food selection:

1) Emphasis on natural, whole foods from the plant kingdom. These foods promote health by providing:

  • Plant proteins
  • Vegetables that give vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and fiber
  • Essential fatty acids
  • Herbs and spices for seasonings and therapies.

These foods should be included in every meal.

2) Natural organic fruits. Enjoy the fruits of the season in bundance. They provide many vitamins, minerals and enzymes. They make an excellent snack or light meal to be eaten in the afternoon or early evening.

3) Whole grains provide fiber, B vitamins, minerals, and carbohydrates and will support and give energy to the body. These are best eaten in
the afternoon or evening.

4) Animal proteins are to be used sparingly. Emphasis should be given to fish, chicken, eggs, cottage cheese and yogurt. Red meats are a high stress food and should be eaten no more than once a week.

5) Food combining to optimize digestion. The CWS Five Lifestyle Classes teach how to combine foods in meal plans. Proteins and carbohydrates should not be eaten at the same time. We recommend eating
various types of vegetables and proteins in the same meal.

6) Proteins should be consumed early in the day. A high protein
breakfast provides great fuel for the body before a long days work. Lunch can be either a protein meal or a complex carbohydrate meal to sustain energy through the rest of the day.

7) Light foods are recommended in the early evening hours and include complex carbohydrates, vegetables and fruits.

8) Avoid late night eating
(after 6:00 pm)
