Eating Basics

We have all heard that we are what we eat and we all know what the bad stuff includes but let's discuss it just a little further and talk about the good things to eat as well.

Foods to restrict or eliminate entirely:

White Sugar
White Flour
White Rice
Iceberg Lettuce
Dairy Products (including cheese, milk and yogurt)
Nitrates, Flouride, Caffeine
Carbonated Drinks
Artificial Sweeteners including NutraSweet, Aspartame
Processed foods
Soy Products

Ok!  So what should we be eating?

Raw fruits & vegetables
Dark Leafy greens (Romaine lettuce, spinach, kale, broccolli etc.)
Organic Meats
Whole Sprouted grains (our bodies do not process grains preoperly unless they are sprouted)
Organic/Raw nuts and seeds
Sweeteners (Raw Honey, Raw Sugar, Maple Syrup or Stevia)

Is Food Cmbining Important?

Eat Meats with vegetables
Eat Starches with vegetables (not with meat)
Eat fruit alone and preferable on an empty stomach
Fruits and vegetables can be combined in smoothies without interupting digestion.

What about Fats?

Avoid hydrogenated oils (these are low fat products and trans-fatty acids which cause your cholesterol to go up.  Hydrogenated oil have been heated to extremely high temperatures that changes the oils so the body cannot break them down.  Hydrogenated oils are found in most packaged  & processed foods.

Fats that are good to eat!

Organic Coconut oil
Olive Oil
Fats that are found naturally in whole vegetables such as avocados, nuts and seeds is also good!
