OMS Cookbook by Lotte Wild – Switching to the OMS Program Diet

Switching to The OMS Program Diet

Switching to a new diet can be a challenge. If you decide to give up certain foods because they pose a health risk for your body, often nobody really tells you how to do it. Many times you don’t know what to eat instead. This is one story of how it can be done.

When I switched to the OMS Program Diet I decided to go for a clean cut from one day to another. I decided to give up all the foods that were deemed unhealthy. I decided to make such a radical change because I knew, if I didn’t empty my kitchen, hunger (or cravings) might tempt me to go back to eating the things I needed to give up in order for this diet to work. The biggest change for me was giving up all those saturated and unhealthy unsaturated fats that are hidden in ready made foods, snacks etc. I became an avid label reader. The first thing I did was to go through all the things that were in my cupboards. I looked at the labels (and cleared out) all those handy pasta sauces, pestos, thai spice mixes, biscuits (cookies), chocolates, muesli bars, muesli, crackers, most of the pre-baked bread products, canned soups and sauces (if they contained any fat). I said goodbye to the cheeses, yoghurts and other dairy products in the fridge. What I was left with were some staple basics like canned tomatoes, some chickpeas, a few beans, rice, pasta, a bottle of cold pressed, extra virgin olive oil and a lot of empty space. read more

Vegan Gluten Free and Dairy Free Breakfast Recipe OMS Diet

What can you eat for Breakfast that is Gluten Free, Dairy Free and ensures you stick to the OMS Diet Program?

The OMS Diet Program is a diet that is mainly plant based and free from all dairy products and saturated fats. It also avoids most other fats that are in any way processed or heated. The diet avoids omega 6 fatty acids as much as possible too. Seeds and most nuts, like almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts etc are fine to eat on this diet with the exception of coconuts as they have a very high saturated fat content.

What you eat for breakfast or what you have been eating for breakfast before you started a diet like the one recommended by the OMS Program probably depends quite a lot on where you live. Breakfasts can be hot or cold, contain cereals, protein, fruit and vegetables, can be sweet or savoury. read more
