Food as Medicine
Medical student on an endeavour to transform reactionary approach to medicine to a more proactive approach
I am a third year medical student with a masters in psychology, certification in nutrition and a bachelor’s in business.
I believe more times than not, we should be prescribing our patients with a healthy lifestyle over prescribed medications. And I believe a healthy lifestyle starts with a healthy diet rich in whole plant-foods.
On this website, I will be sharing with you evidence based nutrition and covering what a healthy diet looks like, how to incorporate a healthy diet in your lifestyle and the role of diet in prevention, treatment and in certain cases reversal of chronic lifestyle diseases.
I also believe in living a sustainable and conscious life that involves reducing our carbon footprint on the planet and living with compassion and kindness.
Focus your diet on whole foods and minimally processed foods.
Incorporate foods from these six categories daily: Fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, nuts and seeds.
Work towards building a healthy relationship with food and intuitive style of eating.
