1. Eat lighter to heavier throughout the day

Nicole practices food combining, which involves eating in a way that aids digestion and elimination. She typically starts with a fruit plate in the morning, includes foods like sweet potatoes, avocados, and cooked vegetables during the day, and finishes with heavier proteins and starches. This approach is about adapting to what feels right and easy for your body to avoid bloating.

2. Eat raw foods before cooked foods

Nicole stresses that feeling energetic is crucial for daily life. By incorporating raw foods such as fruits and vegetables before cooked dishes, she experiences improved energy levels throughout the day. Raw foods move through the body quicker, while cooked foods take longer to digest. Starting the day with raw foods can positively impact your energy levels.

3. Be flexible with yourself and check in with your cravings

Nicole highlights the importance of tuning into your body’s signals for hunger, fullness, and cravings. Instead of following generic dietary guidelines, she advocates for intuitive eating tailored to individual needs. This approach supports digestive health while fostering a positive relationship with food. Nicole recommends a blend of food combining and intuitive eating for optimal digestion and mental well-being.
