So the other day on Instagram I saw a post from one of the healthy living bloggers I follow about the concept of eating a monomeal. It’s intrigued me, so I decided to do some research.
A monomeal is a meal comprised of one food, usually raw fruits or vegetables. Simple as that! For example, a bowl of fresh pineapple chunks or six oranges or a smoothie of just bananas and water or half a watermelon or a medley of bell pepper slices.
Basically, we have complicated our lives and our food. More is not better.
Think about a smoothie. Smoothies with 10 ingredients are usually unnecessary – try a smoothie with only 3-4 ingredients. Your gut will thank you.
I’ve been trying a monomeal for breakfast a few days a week for about two weeks. Last week, I had a bowl of pineapple one day and then three apples on another day.
Digest fully everything you eat. If there is gas or bloating, then you are not digesting your food properly. Simplify and see what foods work well for you.
While I don’t think this is some life-changing idea. I do like the simplicity behind it. I feel like it’s helping my gut and it’s easy to fix in the morning. Basically a win-win.
What do you think about eating monomeals?
