My Dinner at Home the Other Night

Written by Max Goldberg on February 15, 2012. Follow Max on Twitter: @livingmaxwell.

A few days ago I had a very late lunch, so I only wanted to eat a light dinner.

As you can see it was nothing more than organic tomatoes, avocado, walnuts and black sesame seeds. For a dressing, I took a biodynamic lime and squeezed it all around.

After having gone to see Dr. Joel Fuhrman recently, I have started to eat more nuts with my salads because he claims that they enhance absorption of micronutrients. Plus, nuts add a whole new dimension to the taste of a salad.

So, here it is. Easy to prepare, inexpensive, delicious.

I am a simple eater and don’t need or want heavy sauces, dressings or spices. A very basic dish like this makes me quite happy.

  2. Thanks Eli!

    If I were in your shoes, I would first add green juice to my diet to make my body more alkaline. Then, I would quit carbs/sweets at dinner. Once that was under control, I would then quit them at lunch. Then breakfast.

    I would start small and build from there. Good luck!

    Live well,

  4. re: Cutting sweets/carbs – getting extra leverage on it

    If you really emphasize nutrient dense foods for awhile (leafy greens, non-starchy veg, beans, intact whole grains, raw/unsalted seeds-Whoa!! Shades of Dr. Joel Fuhrman, M.D.!!!) it will make cutting out the sweets and carbs a lot easier. Do you ever eat until full and still feel “hungry?” Still are looking for “something? That is your body talking to you telling you it is in fact still missing something. And that something is all the micronutrients that are packed in the foods I just listed.

    You do have to exert will power because you need to retrain your taste buds and every time you eat something very sweet and or refined they will jump back to their most familiar setting as default. But if you do those two things, eat lots of nutrient dense foods and avoid all refined carbs and added sweeteners, within a couple weeks you will find just plain old fresh fruit to be sweet as candy and very very satisfying.
