"The cling and a clang is the metal in my head when I walk. I hear a sort of, this tinging noise - cling clang. The cling clang. So many things happen while walking. The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."
I see no tea on this list...shame!
I'd say a good quality tea, because tea is great
To take from your list, though, I'd probably default to dark chocolate because nom. Gelatin is also a good thing.
- some fruits
- some fish / shellfish / seafood ?
- a few nuts now and then ?
I like to vary my foods. Not everyone agrees. But the breaking down of nutrients is generally quite constant.
By the way, what is the deal with "pink Himalayan salt" ? anything magical about it ?
Not really, no. It has a bit of iron oxide in it, but it is otherwise just regular salt.
For me it would be "bone broth and/or gelatin". A subtle change, but just to indicate bone broth would be the optimal choice. Oh, and I'd put my home ferments on that list as well. I still have lacto-ferments from last years garden. I ferment ANYTHING that I can. I've got green peppers and carrots with onion and garlic in a ferment container for instance. Coffee is on my daily list as well, but I'm not really under any illusion that this is to promote optimal health. Only eat seaweed about once a week with my sushi, but I do eat a decent amount of fish and bivalves throughout most weeks. And a handful of nuts nearly everyday. Excellent with your breakfast (even if that is at noon )
Like you quality meat, eggs, and raw dairy are abundant at my house. I have a freezer with over 100lbs of beef in it right now along with 4 gallons raw milk and 5 dozen farm fresh free range eggs.
Also like you I plant a garden every year. My spring mix (I'll be putting seed down this week) is several types of lettuce, swiss chard, radish, carrots, onions, a couple of early herbs. This is my salad bowl plot. The summer plot gets peppers, tomato, more herbs, and some bush beans.

Consider Celtic salt rather than Himalayan.....a member of the iodine group I follow on FB reports that she tested several types and brands of anthrax salts, and Himalayan had the overall highest levels of fluoride and other toxins. Apparently it's hard to pinpoint the actual source. Celtic salt had the best mineral profile. I like Redmond Real Salt, myself.
That's supposed to say 'natural' salts....highly doubt any salt has anthrax ;-)
I'm not sure why chocolate and salt are on this list. I can see that they are enjoyable to eat, but as a list of healthy foods to remember to eat, I'm not sure they'll be forgotten, and if so, that there would be a loss of anything if you did forget to eat them.
If you really want to sleep well, heavy deadlifts and lots of them seem to do the trick for me.

As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
