My Evolving Nutrition Guide to What’s Healthy, Accessible, and Affordable

I took a lot of this from the Bulletproof diet, mixed in a few other of my favorite resources, and then took this out into the streets to grocery stores and health markets to find what was actually available. The goal is to create a simple baseline of what’s healthy, accessible, and affordable.

The basics:

  • coffee
  • wine
  • soda water
  • coconut water
  • wheatgrass shots
  • low sugar fresh fruit juices
  • tomato / veggie juice
  • lemons & limes
  • produce
  • fresh spices (mint / parsley)
  • hummus dip
  • eggplant dip
  • salsa
  • legumes
  • beans
  • kimchi
  • olives
  • raw nuts
  • coconut oil
  • grass fed butter
  • grass fed eggs
  • grass fed chicken & meats
  • fresh caught fish
  • apple cider vinegar
