Step 1/ Drink 1 pint of plain water daily. Step 2/ Add a healthy fat to breakfast. Step 3/ Cooked vegetables in the evening. Step 4/ Lunch vegetable.
Eat a raw vegetable at lunch.
Again, there are benefits to both cooked and raw vegetables, but for this step we are sticking to raw. Raw vegetables can be tougher to digest because the full fiber is intact, however, that is also one of their benefits... That fiber, once mixed with the rest of your lunch in your stomach, slows the digestion down, stabilizing blood sugar for a 4 to 6 hour window. This will easily get you past that late-afternoon energy slump.
In addition, the nutrients cleaved to that fiber have not been muted by cooking... (As an example, vitamins B and C are sensitive to heat)... Eating both cooked and raw vegetables makes sure you get the full spectrum of nutrients that vegetables have to offer.
