Why Is What We Eat So Important?

Good health is about being able to fully enjoy the time we have living. It is about being as functional as possible throughout our entire lives and avoiding crippling, painful and lengthy battles with disease. There are many better ways to die, and to live. ~The China Study

The most important thing we can do for our health is EAT REAL FOOD! Stay away from processed food and know where your food comes from. If you’re eating meat choose grass fed, pasture raised organic meat. Grass fed meat has much better fats than grain fed meat. If you’re eating chicken, buy organic chicken, free of hormones and antibiotics.

Eat a variety of fruits and vegetables, 8-10 servings daily, limiting fruit to three pieces a day, due to their high sugar content. If you think you’re eating enough greens, eat more! Vegetables are one of the keys to a healthy diet, they have a wide range of vitamins and minerals that our bodies need including protein, iron, calcium and vitamin K.

Eat healthy fats in moderation. Healthy fats are omega 3 fats found in cold water fish, extra virgin olive oil, nuts and seeds, avocados, grass fed meats, grass fed butter, eggs and coconut oil.

Stay away from sugar, white flour and anything processed! These so called ‘foods’ cause a spike in our insulin levels, making our blood sticky, causing havoc in our bodies!

Limit dairy products.

Every single food item we eat effects every single cell in the body!

Learning to enjoy the taste of eating right, takes time and perseverance.
