All organic produce. Its much more expensive, but if you can get stuff from farmers markets its usually reasonable. Locally grown is also best if possible. I researched and read all kinds of plans, and there are a million websites out there with recipes.. but I’m a helluva cook already, I love fruits and veggies already.. so for me I just bought what I know is nutritional and tastes good. I didn’t follow any recipes, just created my own. I’ll be sharing some of them with you as we go on.
They say to not buy more than about 3 days worth of food.. thing is, with this being my first time I didn’t know what I would go through. This lasted 5 days with some left over.. mainly fruit. I decided early on that I didn’t want to be drinking too much fruit juice. I know what that much sugar does to the system and that would be counterproductive to be saturating myself with sugar and upsetting my natural flora and messing with my glucose levels.
The greens that I use are black kale, red kale, green kale, rainbow chard and spinach. There are more leafy greens you can use.. wheatgrass, spirulina (which I bought powdered as a supplement) broccoli, etc. But I love the kales and chards and spinaches. And surprisingly they go so well with the fruit and don’t overpower the taste in the way that broccoli does.
Staples for me are:
kale (red, green and black)
carrots (large 25 lb juicing bags)
tomatoes (green, yellow and red) - as firm as possible!
apples (all colors)
fresh young coconut
I also bought some kombucha tea, coconut water.. I already have a hellafied tea stash so I didn’t buy any more but you’ll want green teas and white teas and black teas.. all kinds of teas. :)
