Eat for Life

Good morning! I would love to share a day in the life of Dr. Christy with you. Let’s start with an easy and tasty breakfast you can relax on the patio with or grab and go before your busy day. Pasture Raised Eggs, 21- Day Sauerkraut, Organic Cucumber and Tomato with Earl Grey Tea and Gerolsteiner.

Preparing Dinner before you head out the door in the morning ensured a quick and easy, nutrient dense school night dinner that slow cooks all day in the crock pot.

Homemade Split Pea Soup
1# split peas (soaked with 1TB vinegar the night before)
1 ham shank
1 onion, chopped
1 bunch rainbow chard, chopped very fine
2 c. bone stock
2 c. water (or to cover peas)
Sautée onions & chard (soooo easy with the instapot ) and then put everything together and slow cook all day.Salt to taste after cooking, but depending on your preference the ham shank may add enough flavor without added salt. *The bone stock and swiss chard add a little extra nutrition. Tonight this will be creamy, rich, and delicious. The best part: dinner is ready & waiting for us!
Lunchtime on the go or at the office can be healthy and delicious. Sardines are what’s for lunch today! They are a very easy way to eat “nose to toes” and get your Omega-3’s from food.

I enjoy using bread from Food for Life Baking – gluten free 3 seed bread. 1/2 mashed avocado on the bread, broccoli sprouts, and sardine salad:

Cottage Cheese, Green Onions, Shredded Carrot. Seasoned with Herbamare and kelp granules.

Snack time favorite – granny smith apple with peanut butter! #yum

Dinner is hot and ready waiting at home for you and your hungry family. We enjoy grilled cheese with our split pea soup. Use the same gluten free 3 seed bread you used for lunch.

Before bed I have a nightly habit of preparing my morning lemon water so it’s ready to drink first thing in the am. I bring it into my bathroom, this ensures it’s right there, ready to go and I chug it down first thing in the am. My body REALLY likes it and it keeps me hydrated and is a gentle (natural) cleanse.

Good night, Dr. Christy
