“Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food” – Hippocrates
Help design Phi Bistro’s new menu! We are creating a menu that highlights ingredients that are cooked on low heat, high on the ORAC value scale, offers proteins with high biological value, and meals that are built on the 40:40:20 ratio of carb, protein, and fats. The colour of our ingredients also matters.
- Cooking high heat destroys the nutrients in our food. More here: https://authoritynutrition.com/cooking-nutrient-content/
- Oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) is a method of measuring antioxidant capacities in biological samples in vitro.
- Biological value (BV) is a measure of the proportion of absorbed protein from a food which becomes incorporated into the proteins of the organism’s body. It captures how readily the digested protein can be used in protein synthesis in the cells of the organism. Proteins are the major source of nitrogen in food.
- Millions have found success with the 40:40:20 meal plan: https://www.404020.com/science
- The colour of the food matters. Each colour reflects what chakra we are nourishing. Red peppers for the root chakra, oranges for the 2nd, and so on and so forth. Purple is the highest (crown chakra). Foods that are brown also have a tint of purple (cacao, chaga).
When we eat meals with these points in mind, stay hydrated, and keep our minds light and happy, we begin to tap into higher levels of enlightenment.
- Research the above listed healthy eating principles.
- Write an article on each above bullet point to share with others (ie, one on how we cook, another on ORAC, BV, the 40:40:20 meal plan, the colour of the food)
- Find high-end bistro recipes that use low heat, high ORAC ingredients, high BV, are constructed into 40:40:20, and use colours at the high end of the rainbow.
