Unveiling of new term

Micro-nutritarian.



That's what I am. Not vegan. Not vegetarian.



My nutrition goal is to eat my fill of micro-nutrients (fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, and on and on), which is all the stuff that doesn't have caloric value but it's where all the immune building and disease fighting power comes from. It's the stuff that helps you battle stress and keeps you at low risk of cancer, obesity, diabetes, arthritis, auto immune diseases, dementia, heart disease, high blood pressure and many other debilitating, nutrient-deficient diseases (which make up a huge majority of our causes of death).



I believe if your goal is to eat a plethora of micro-nutrients you don't have to worry about calories, protein, fat or carbs...all that will take care of itself.



So how do you get your micro-nutrients? Eating tons of green leafy veggies, a colorful assortment of raw and cooked fruits and veggies, a wide variety of legumes, nuts and seeds. Pretty simple.



What has little in the ways of micro-nutrient variety?

Meat, cheese, milk, processed foods, sugar, oils, dairy, white breads and pastas.
