As we all know lunch is the second most important meal of the day. It should be are biggest because that is when our digestive system is working the best .We should also have small snacks depending on our activity level.Remember to wait to have something to drink with your meals ,as this contributes to fermentation in the stomach .Also we need different gastric juices in order to assimilate our food so we should try not to combine several different foods at one time .
whisk 2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice, 1/3 cup olive oil, 1 tbsp. fresh oregano, and 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper;
