Make sure you shop around the periphery of the grocery - that is where all the fresh foods are sold. Frozen is next best and avoid canned whenever possible, especially for vegetables. Use organic foods whenever possible to reduce the amount of toxins coming into your body from pesticides.
Healthy Cooking Tips
Do not use aluminum, Teflon or iron to cook in. Use stainless steel or glass (Corning or Pyrex). Use a variety of spices instead of salt. If you do use salt, use Vega Salt, Mrs. Dash or Sea Salt. Always serve fresh vegetables. Use low fat dressings for a dip or dressing. Use a variety of fluids for cooking, lemon juice, lime juice, tomato sauce, olive oil, macadamia nut oil, canola oil, salad dressings.
Rotate your diet! Our body becomes sensitive to foods we eat all the time. Don't eat the same food daily. Rotate food every four days. Example: Fruit - Day 1 apples, day 2 orange, day 3 berries, day 4 bananas, day 5 have another apple. Eat foods compatible with your body. Find out which foods are compatible with your body by having an Alcat food sensitivity test and a blood type diet list.
Healthy Carbohydrates? Fruit, vegetables, grains and beans and potatoes are all carbohydrates. How much fiber each carbohydrate contains makes the difference between a good carb and a bad carb. Folks with diabetes, hypoglycemia, hypoinsulemia, and weight control issues need to limit the amount of carbohydrates. Count your fiber grams. Eat foods allowing you 25 grams of fiber daily. Block cravings with protein to maintain challenged blood sugar levels.
