“Breakfast Like a King, Lunch like a Prince And Dinner Like a Pauper”

   No Raw After Four                                               Chew, Chew, Chew

Working on the principle that raw                             You need to chew your food to

          Pure and True                                                          Eat Your Water

If an ingredient is changed fundamentally,              It’s important to stay hydrated. So

avoid it. Steer clear of processed foods,                    drink up your water, and eat it too:

which lose their nutritional value when                    foods with a high water content are as

heat processed or contain chemical additives.              effective. Drink up, eat up and

                                                                                                      restore your glow!

  Don’t Drink Your Calories

Fruit juices may be pure but they are also

high in natural sugars. Bootled smoothies

and low in nutrients, so high in empty calories.

                Fat Ain’t Bad                                                      Listen to Your Body

              be scared of good fats.                                                       spot a pattern.

                  Hands Off!                                                                  Tech-Free Diet
