Micki Rose’s low glycaemic load, gluten-free, dairy-free diet!
Fed up with having to ‘cobble’ bits of diets together for her food-sensitive patients, naturopathic nutritionist Micki Rose decided to write a diet plan herself. You can get the full plan as an e-book on her website, www.purehealthclinic.co.uk, but here’s enough to get you going.
Your diet should be based around organic meat, fish, eggs, nuts, seeds, fruit, veg, salad, sprouted beans and seeds, gluten free grains and pulses.
There are no gluten or dairy foods and sugar is very limited. It’s a medium protein, lowish carb, non-allergenic, blood sugar balancing healthy and nutritious diet.
Foods to eat lots of:
• Fish, especially deep sea and oily. Not tuna unless organic. (At least three times a week.)
Foods NOT to eat lots of:
• Dairy foods: anything from another species like cow, sheep, buffalo or goat. No milk, cheese, yogurt, cream, butter or dairy spreads.
One-Week Quick Start Plan
This plan is not calorie-counted or measured in any way so you can mix and match meals or swop anything you like; it’s simply here to give you a place to start if you need one. All the meals are taken from the ‘Meals To Enjoy’ section of the E-Book and I have tried to make the meal plan realistic to fit in with daily life. It’s probably not perfect, but it’s good enough – and that’s how your attitude should be. You don’t have to let it take over your life – and you should enjoy your food.
Start the day with a glass of hot water and lemon, drink pure filtered water through the day and other drinks of your choice. Eat slowly, preferably with no distractions and chew well.
