Each Family should have a family diet plan.
The goal I have for my family called the “Family Diet” or Hugiano Diet Tray would be: whole Grains, Legumes, Vegetables, Raw Nuts, Vegetables, Raw Seeds, and Fruits. These constitutes 80% of our calories intake.
Cooked Fish and Poultry is 10% while cooked lean meat is 1%, which I rarely eat. The other 9% calories intake would come from raw seeds and raw nuts (5%), fats and oils from veggies (3%), soy milk and yogurt dairies (1%). As we age and monitor our general well-being and medical data such as cholesterol levels, we could become more radical and move towards the perfect Genesis Diet outlined in Go Natural.
This is our health plan which we have started on, mine being more radical. For example, we now stock our fruit and veggies tray on the counter for everyone to pick as they pass by making us to be less hungry before our major meals. I keep a plate of it in my office and even in my car keeping me from visiting fast foods restaurant during my afternoon commutes in the city. I am still working on drinking the right amount of fluids to cleanse my system because of the frequency of urination that had troubled me in the past.
Personally I hope to reduce my beef consumption to near zero, or monthly only edible sparingly at home or at social events. I have substituted regular dairy product with soy milk (although my other family members sometimes use lactose-free milk). In all these changes, I first experiment them on myself for a week or two and then explain to them the benefits I am getting from them. They usually follow my advice and thereafter we are all on board.
My modified Family Diet tray (or “Dunamis-Hugiano Diet” tray for a healthy lifestyle) in calorific terms based on the Genesis Diet and Meat Diet (Gen. 1:28-29; 4:4; 1 Tim. 4:4-5; Col. 2:16).
- Fruits 10%
- Vegetables 30%
- Legumes 20%
- Whole Grains 20%
- Raw Seeds 2%
- Raw Nuts 3%
- Veggie Oil including Butter 3%
- Soy Milk/Yogurt 1%
- Fish/Poultry 10%
- Meat 1%
- Total 100%
You need to design your own family diet plan in line with the Genesis diet. Pray and ask God to give you ideas for a healthy food plan which greatly affects your daily lifestyle.
