It’s no surprise that the majority of health issues today stem from the food we eat. The old cliché, “we are what we eat”, is true. Food is our medicine! Instead of thinking about what we shouldn’t eat, let’s think about what we should eat and why.
You are probably all familiar with the typical food pyramid. Well, I thought I would share with you the food pyramid that I choose to follow. The obvious difference – it’s full of real, whole food!
Now, I completely understand that everyone is different and what works for one, might not work for another, but I am certain that every single one of us can benefit from swapping out processed foods for real, whole food.
In summary, my food pyramid looks like this:
- Nutritious, satisfying, high-nutrient-value, low-insulin-stimulating foods.
- Low carbohydrate, moderate protein with ample nutritious fats.
- Free of grains, sugars and refined vegetable oils.
If your mind has immediately turned to restriction, then think again. A real, whole food diet is full of incredibly delicious choices including dark chocolate treats (in moderation)!
