The central idea of the SLIM eating plan is this: Eat unprocessed natural living foods and connect directly with nature, especially air, light, and water.

The list below should give you a good stock of ingredients for your ideal meals. Try to avoid getting things, not on this list i.e. processed food.

Meal Recommendations

These are my favourite suggestions.

In the morning: 
Choose a smoothie from our recipe page or try some fruit and yoghurt. You could have ‘rolled oats porridge’ or ‘eggs on raw spinach or toast’ both once a week. If you do get some bread, try and get the heaviest brick seed loaf you can find at your local bakery and only use 2-3 slices a week.

During the day: You could use leftovers from dinner, soups, curries, stir fry, or salads. You could add some tinned fish, avocado, tofu, or chicken breast, but it’s best to keep it vegetarian if possible. Snack on fruit as you feel the need for energy. You can always make a cup of tea or another smoothie as alternatives.

Dinners: It’s good to stick to soups, curries, stir fry, or salads and avoid white rice, pasta, buns, or other alternatives to bread like naan, pita, tacos, tortillas, nachos, etc. Try to only have meat 2-3 times a week or less, and stick to chicken or fish if possible. It’s easier to digest. Increase the spiciness of your meals, as this helps boost metabolic rate.
