I get asked what kinds of foods I eat and what I feed my family. Those who follow me know we eat a diet with LOTS of organic fruits and vegetables with fish, some chicken, and very little meat- only a few times a year at holidays or weddings with family.

So today, I’d like to share what’s in my pantry with you. I am such an advocate of REAL food from the produce section that we rarely buy things shopping down the isles at the store.

I am so impressed with the organic section at Kroger, though! You really can find almost anything you need there, even organic turmeric!

Everything is in moderation, right?! If you need sugar, please just eat natural sugar. I take just one teaspoon of my coffee. So you are probably saying to yourself, now come on, Dr. Nandi, You have a snack on something? What about your kids? Honestly, I just snack on nuts and cut up veggies, but we do buy things like Organic Pretzels and organic fishies. We put peanut butter on them for some protein.

You can find all of these items and their health benefits on my website.

Now you know you don’t have to starve to be healthy, and you don’t have to spend a fortune either! Just focus on staying as close to nature as possible. Fresh foods and foods with short, simple ingredient lists. 

To your health and happiness!
