I can, however, summarize my number one step to better health in one sentence. From my course of studies at The Institute for Integrative Nutrition and with all of my own personal trials and research, I can reduce my main recommendation to one key point.
Drum roll……it is so simple but oh so hard…..just EAT REAL FOOD!
Real food is what our bodies are meant to process and what our bodies excel at processing.
Processed foods eaten only very occasionally will not affect us terribly, but over a lifetime, our bodies will start to moan and groan and heavily complain.
I am sure you have heard the buzz about inflammation? Yes, as Dr. Barry Sears so well explains, our bodies and organs with inflammation catch fire. Then, the chronic problems begin.
So start in a simple way. In the afternoon, instead of grabbing for a chip or cookie to get that late afternoon boost, eat a carrot or an apple. Even high quality, dark chocolate is a great option. Any takers?
I promise, if you start to replace processed foods slowly and listen to your body, your cravings will shift over time.
It is not bad news. It is GREAT news. Look at the myriad of colors in these fruits and veggies that can nourish all the cells of your body! They will make you feel healthier and more vibrant.
