Notes from my Nutritionist Friend

I thought I’d better share with you some of Siew Mei’s notes. I was quickly jotting them down as she helped explain to me what I can eat. Earlier on in my journey, I was troubled when many told me what food to stay away from. But I was constantly hungry and I wasn’t sure what I could eat. Even white bread is bad. What about Gardenia brown bread then? Pray tell me, “What CAN I eat?”.

Needless to say, I was so pleased that there is so much that I can eat after she briefed me. She also brought over so many types of organic food that I have never seen before because prior to my condition I have never walked into an organic shop. Forgive me for the messy notes!


Adventis bread (don’t buy bread off the shelf). You can store loaves of bread in freezer until you need them. Siew Mei buys 10 at a go. Our fridge is not so big! :)
Go on juices
Take raw food – enzymes help in digestion
