I eat a primarily raw, whole food, plant based diet and that is the type of food I recommend for optimal health. I typically eat raw for breakfast with a warming tea, lunch and snacks are a combination of raw and cooked, and the same will go for dinner.
These are the fresh fruits I typically have in my kitchen during all seasons. Bananas and apples especially are a staple when it gets cold in Canada because they’re always really affordable and they are always the same quality year round. In the summer I eat a lot of raw fresh fruits that contain higher water content like melons, peaches, plums, apricots, mango, pineapple and berries. My favourite fruits are bananas, mango and blueberry so that’s typically what I will always have on hand regardless of the season. Cucumber and tomato are always stocked as well for salads and snacks.
I always like to have fresh spinach in my fridge to throw into smoothies in the morning. I also like to have celery, romaine and bell peppers to make salads with, and mushrooms to add to grain bowls. Potatoes are also a huge staple especially in the winter to create warm hardy, low fat meals.

FROZEN FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
When fresh is too expensive or goes off too quickly, frozen is the next best thing. I like to keep a variety of frozen fruits and vegetables in my freezer for smoothies and quick and easy meals. It’s also a great way for me to keep food stocked in my house while I’m away travelling. If I know I have a ton of ripe bananas available but I’m not going to be home for a few days, I will cut them up, put them in little freezer safe bags and freeze them. I also like to do this with greens such as spinach and kale because they tend to go off fairly quickly, especially if you buy them in large quantities and can’t eat them right away.
