The #1 way to eat well and get healthy is to take inventory of your pantry and your current meals. What do you find yourself eating more of: fresh whole foods or dead packaged foods? Do your current eating habits lead your body to be riddled with disease or to ultimate health?
So what is the difference between live and dead food?
Living foods are fresh, whole foods such as fruit and vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes, and grains. These are the foods that create a life of ultimate healthy without heart disease, stroke, cancer, obesity, and diabetes. These are the foods that will increase energy, extend your life, and make you feel awesome!
Dead foods are those foods out there that are not whole. They are packaged and processed with chemicals and preservatives added with expiration dates. They lead to disease and death, not a fulfilled life! They shouldn’t even be labeled as food! They don’t have the necessary nutrition to sustain a quality filled life.
Michael Pollan in his book “Food Rules” has a great quote regarding dead foods: “Avoid food products containing ingredients that a third-grader cannot pronounce.” These ingredients you would not recognize as food if you saw what goes into these products. Stick to actual food, not chemicals labeled as something resembling food!
So, today take inventory of your pantry, refrigerator, and freezer! Which road are you taking: disease or ultimate health?
