Dr. Joel Fuhrman uses the acronym G BOMBS to signify High Nutrient Dense foods (HND) that support the body to heal and thrive. What we like about this acronym is that it keeps all the main categories of HND foods easy to remember. It stands for Greens – Beans – Onion (family) – Mushrooms – Berries – Seeds.
We decided to make a salad that represents the power of G BOMBS that tastes delicious and is really satisfying. Join us as Connie demonstrates making it:
Yes, Greens, Beans, Onions, Mushrooms, Berries and Seeds are key to great health. Add more of them to your daily eating and notice how your body responds. You’ll be surprised at how it thanks you for eating these foods.
The salad is delicious and you can add beans or lentils for the Bean category, both work great. If you have difficulty digesting beans, lentils are much easier. Some times it can take a few weeks building our microbiome with lentils for us to digest beans easily.
To Your Amazing Health,
Connie and Bill
