My food philosophy is real simple: eat real food—feel real good. When you eat chemicals, preservatives, sugar alcohols, food additives, food coloring, high fructose corn syrup, genetically modified ingredients, trans-fat, monosodium glutamate, and refined sugars, chances are real good you probably aren’t going to feel real good. When you feel your best, you can be your best. I want you to be the best and healthiest version of you.
So what does it mean to eat real food? It means that you
-Eat foods naturally full of color (forget the florescent colored cheetos)
-Avoid foods that are highly processed (steer clear of the packaged stuff)
-Eat foods that are from the earth (foods grown in the ground, not a test tube)
-Avoid foods with scary sounding chemicals (scary chemicals do scary things)
Now while it’s easy to know that the food coming directly from the earth (can’t really go wrong with fruit, veggies, lean proteins, whole -especially sprouted- grains) is real food (and yes, I am fully aware of the whole GMO debate but let’s save just that for a later date/newsletter), the stuff that comes in boxes, bags and cans (that tend to be quicker, more convenient and super tasty) tend to be full of those test tube ingredients—read those labels, YouAnewers! Here are a few fun brand favorites that I generally (they may produce a few “junky” health foods) find I can trust: Just Tomatoes Etc., Food for Life, Way Better Snacks and Emmy’s Organics. Of course this list is by no means exhaustive, it’s just a few of my favs. I am always on the lookout for fresh, hot, new, clean, whole foods brands.
Alright now, it’s go time! Eat real food—Feel real good. (and hey, if you need help figuring this whole what to eat, when to eat, how to eat thing out, come and spend some time one-on-one with me by enrolling in a YouAnew Core Program…). Let’s do it.
