One of the most popular questions I get asked is “what do you eat?”
I’m not sure why this is, but people tend to think that naturopathic doctors are saints when it comes to dietary habits, and this really couldn’t be further from the truth. Naturopathic medical school is a gruelling, 4 year program that really doesn’t give you the time, money, freedom, or opportunity to live the healthy, balanced life that you should be preaching to your patients. I do the best I can when I can and I learn to listen to my body, to be better in tune with it, so that I know when I can and can’t afford to “splurge”.
Not too long ago I wrote an article discussing my thoughts on diets. I talked more about moderation and the actual relationship we should all strive to have with food. In this article, I would like to highlight some of the things that I do my best to have in my fridge at all times.
These 7 items are ones I do my best to have in my fridge at all times. Remember to buy organic when you can and stay tuned for part 2: What’s in an ND’s pantry?
