Focusing on getting as much nutrient dense food as possible leaves less room for stuff you shouldn’t be eating! Adequate protein, vegetables, and healthy fats provide energy and decrease cravings.
Nutrient Dense Foods to Consume:
Eggs (from pastured chickens)
Dark green leafy vegetables (organic whenever possible)
Sugary, in-ground vegetables such as beets and carrots (organic whenever possible)
Fruit, especially dark berries (organic whenever possible)
Ferments (kombucha, yogurt, sauerkraut, kefir)
Meat from Pastured Animals (grass fed beef, bison; pastured pigs and chicken)
Low Omega-6 saturated fats such as Coconut Oil, Grass Fed Butter, Olive Oil, Avocado Oil
Bone broth from Pastured Animals
Wild caught fish (like salmon)
Iodine rich seafood (shrimp, scallops)
Safe starches (white potatoes, sweet potatoes, yams, plantains, white rice)
Including at least a few healthy habits every day can drastically improve your overall health!
If it doesn’t go bad, or if they advertise it on tv, it’s probably not good for you.
Toxic Things to Avoid:
Grains (unless sprouted or fermented… and only occasionally)
Processed Foods (including but not limited to commercial breads, crackers, tortillas, snack foods, store bought mayo, store bought salad dressings)
Vegetable Oils (like canola, corn, safflower, soybean, sunflower)
Refined Sugar (including but not limited to soda, baked goods, candy)
Most importantly, don’t worry! A sandwich is not going to kill you… right away 😉
