Starting the Kaufmann Diet can be a challenge for many people, because it is so different than the way most Americans are used to eating. Most people are accustom to eating lots of breads, cereals, pasta, potatoes and foods with added sugar, and on The Kaufmann Diet, all of these foods are excluded. In many ways, The Kaufmann Diet forces people to relearn how to eat; so what does a balanced Kaufmann Diet Plate contain?

Because The Kaufmann Diet is a low-carb diet, many people default to obvious choices, like lots of bacon and eggs; hamburger patties; lots of nuts for a snack. These options are perfectly fine on the diet, but surviving exclusively on meats, eggs and nuts not only gets old really quickly, it is likely not the best option for your health, either. 

The Kaufmann Diet encourages plenty of health-promoting foods, including many vegetables and some fruits, that should definitely be included in your diet. There really is not ever any reason to be hungry, because the diet does not place limits on the amount of food you can eat, nor is there a lack of variety or options.

Vegetables such as carrots, broccoli, zucchini, and brussels sprouts can all be delicious when prepared properly. Sautéed vegetables in olive oil and butter with plenty of onions, garlic, herbs and spices are a great, delicious and healthy compliment to dinner or lunch. Greens like spinach, romaine, kale or arugula can easily be tossed with a simple dressing of olive oil, lemon, garlic and apple cider vinegar for a side salad, tossed with olives, tomatoes, onions, avocado, cucumbers and toasted walnuts. 

As far as fruit is concerned; green apples, grapefruits, and berries are encouraged. These make great snacks or sides and provide abundant fiber, phytonutrients, antioxidants and good fats––all nutrients that encourage good health and are beneficial on an anti-fungal diet. Other snacks like carrots or celery with almond butter are also great, nutrition-pack snacks.

When you think about breakfast, eggs are a great place to start. However, why not add in some fruit, like grapefruit or sliced apples? Smoothies with avocado, berries, spinach and a bit of liquid stevia are a great, nutrition and fiber-packed addition to eggs and bacon. Having a balanced combination not only provides more nutrition but keeps you fuller for longer. 

Kaufmann Diet Guide

For lunch and dinner, mixed bowls with vegetables and protein or salads with lots of greens and veggies topped with roasted chicken or fish are great options. These can be preassembled and carried easily and are infinitely customizable, which is beneficial if you have picky eaters in the house. 

Ultimately, your Kaufmann Diet Plate should always be diverse, full of color and a blend of vegetables, fruits, lean protein, eggs, nuts, and healthy fats and oils. There is never a reason to be hungry or bored with what you eat on The Kaufmann Diet. For more ideas, check out our cookbooks.
