Eating for Immunity
A lot of you have reached out to me and asked for my recommendations on eating, cooking and all things food related. I wanted to share a few tips to help you stay healthy and make your life a bit easier when shopping and prepping food.
I’ll divide foods into basic categories.
Frozen Wild Shrimp – Whole Food’s brand
Frozen Sea Scallops- Trader Joe’s
Whole Chickens- great for roasting and then cook the bones to make stock for soup
Ground Beef or Turkey- I don’t like to freeze it so I cook in batches with it. Bolognese is a favorite and you can freeze it once it’s prepared. Serve over steamed veggies, Gluten Free or Grain Free Pasta or Cauliflower mash.
Frozen Burger patties- Applegate Farms, etc.
Eggs- Make a veggie scramble, omelets, deviled eggs, etc.
Pea Protein powder- great for smoothies with frozen berries. https://samfgrant.ehealthpro.com/products/organic-purepea-vanilla-450-g-1-lb
Vegetables and Fruits
Some have a longer shelf life than others and most stores have lots of fresh produce. Most people are buying canned and frozen.
Zucchini and other types of squash keep well in fridge. When choosing them, go for the firm ones as they are fresher.
Brussels Sprouts tend to keep well in fridge.
Broccoli and cauliflower can be lightly steamed and then frozen.
Fresh cauliflower is delicious steamed and them mashed with butter and salt- a great low carb mashed potato sub.
Frozen Cauliflower rice is one of my favorite versatile side dishes. I use in in stir frys, soups and other rice dishes like Spanish rice.
Frozen Spinach/kale- great to use in a marinara sauce or stir fry with garlic and onions.
Salad Greens- store in airtight containers and use quickly
Fresh Carrots will last for a few weeks in the fridge
Fresh Asparagus- store standing in fridge in a small vase or dish of water
Fresh Celery- cut of bottom and store standing in fridge in water
Frozen organic Berries, cherries and other fruits
Fresh Oranges last a while in the fridge
Kind Bars- Look for the ones with 5g of sugar (or less)
My favorite bars:
DF Chocolate Mocha bars: https://samfgrant.ehealthpro.com/products/mochanrg-df-bar
Paleo Chocolate bars: https://samfgrant.ehealthpro.com/products/pure-paleobar-chocolate
Baby Red Potatoes- keep in fridge- I know, not a vegetable but can keep a teenager full for a couple of hours! I like roasting these with fresh garlic and dried herbs like basil, rosemary and thyme.
Cappello’s frozen pasta- almond flour based
