Since weve had a tremendous amount of rain and wind the last few days, I've had a lot of time to do research, go to the gym and rest up (When I am not biking to work trying to survive a full on rain storm haha)
However. Todays topic will be one of latest obsessions and favourites. Mono-meals!
For those of you who are completely new to the term I will quickly explain:
As I am mainly a raw vegan at the moment (meaning obviously no animal products, but also not heating anything you eat above 48 degrees celsius) I came across mono-meals a little while ago. People who eat mono meals eat one typ of food for a meal. or example only bananas for breakfast, only mangos for lunch, only orange juice for dinner etc etc. You get the deal. I have been trying it for a little bit, and oh lordy do I feel amazing! Its not recommended to do it all the time, or every single meal, but I find it so good for my stomach to do it every now and then. The benefits are so many!
- Easiest meals to digest (kind to your tummy)
- It forces you to eat better quality foods
- Its a lot harder to over eat
- Optimal absorption of nutrients
My stomach has never felt better! Since going vegan I am barely ever bloated or have stomach pains, not even after BIG meals. With a mono meal every now and then, I feel even better!
I do prefer to have breakfast as a mono meal, but occasionally I do lunch too. You just have to find what work for you! And when I say I only eat bananas for breakfast (like I did today) I do not mean 2 bananas. I mean a lot. Eat to you are fully satisfied and full. Your body will tell you when to stop. Even the taste and texture in our mouth when you are eating will change and you wont be enjoying it as much after a while, and thats your body's way of saying, thats enough :) trust your signals! I devoured so many mangoes for lunch today. Best lunch ever! Let me know what you think!
