Erin Lovell Verinder is not only one of my dearest friends, but she has also personally nursed Arran, Marley and I through many a health challenge. I love her as she weaves together her no-nonsense approach, her deeply spiritual personal path, with decades of clinical experience as a naturopath, herbalist, and nutritionist to deliver for me, the perfect combination of what I want when I put my health in someone’s hands. And she’s kind and warm and so loving, should you be having a crisis and seriously need genuine guidance and maybe a shoulder to cry on that gets you. In a nutshell, I love her. She was very kind in contributing a huge amount to the High Vibrational Challenge with recipes, ideas, and philosophy, as she is truly aligned with the purpose within this challenge for us all to raise our vibration. There’s way more detail within the Challenge, but I wanted to pull out some key messages for you! In particular, I love Eat The Rainbow as a message, as too often I find that I am eating a few tones only, and it reminds me to get broader on my vegetable front!
From Erin; “High Vibrational Foods – three words for you as a golden guide through this challenge. EAT THE RAINBOW! Pump up plant-based foods. Vary your choices, try new things! The highest vibe foods are the cleanest and simple. Fruits and veggies are rich in naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, fiber and a long list of antioxidant-rich elements. They are essentially nutrient-dense powerhouses!
Focus on lower fructose fruits and always weave them in the earlier part of the day, where you are more active and your body is more primed to utilise their energy-yielding goodness. Aim for 2 serves max daily. Berries, passionfruit, lemons, limes, apricot, firm bananas, rockmelon, kiwi fruit, pineapple, pawpaw, and pomegranates are all good options. Our bodies need to eat green veggies to thrive, and this is one of the simplest ways to supercharge your high vibe challenge. Focus on less starchy veggies and more alkalising greens as the bulk of your veggies. Think kale, spinach, rocket, lettuce, broccoli, celery, and cucumbers. Also include beets, carrots, cauliflower – they all have extra alkalising and super-powered impacts on our health.
Increase cabbage, leek, garlic, onions if well tolerated, they all bring a cocktail of goodness and speak to clearing the liver fluently via their sulphur-rich compounds. Pull down your more sweet starchy veggies in this challenge, it does not mean you have to eliminate your pumpkin/sweet potato/ potato but go easy on these. On the daily increase your veggie intake – if you are naturally a low veggie eater- aim to at least double it! Eat heavier to lighter! Breakfast should be hefty, lunch substantial and dinner the lightest”
