I emphasize YOU (should make the decision) because everyone is different. There is no one diet that benefits us all. Everyone’s makeup is different and your diet should be tailored to your body’s needs, your lifestyle, etc.
The ideal/perfect diet that will benefit everyone doesn’t exist!
Because you might notice that even certain real foods cause digestive (or even other) problems for you. It’s important to listen to the feedback of your body so that you can avoid those foods until you have a better understanding of why they are causing such issues.
Yet, still, I have faith in REAL FOOD and I know that eating REAL FOOD that is grown in its natural environment without toxic pesticides, without being genetically modified, but as God intended is best.
I know one thing is for sure, everyone’s body is unique and we are all at different points along our health journey. Yet, there are so many foods within the entire REAL FOOD spectrum that anyone can find enough food to eat and enjoy to his or her full satisfaction.
The intent of this website is to help you add more whole plant-based foods to your current diet. This way you can make sure to nourish your body with what it needs and eat a more variety of foods that can supply you with vitamins and minerals that perhaps you are missing.
Only YOU can truly decide which REAL FOODS are ideal for your body at any point in time. Eventually, you will figure out what does and what does not work for you. The important goal is to focus on eating REAL FOOD.
Real Food (Definition):
REAL FOOD is prepared with fresh, non-refined, preservative-free and chemical-free, whole food ingredients — and it’s best when prepared by you.
Here are some examples of real foods:
- Fresh Fruits*
- Fresh Vegetables*
- Whole Grains (wheat, barley, oats, quinoa, rice: brown/red/black/wild)
- Nuts and Seeds (Dry roasted without added oils or salt, or better yet, raw nuts and seeds)
- Beans and Legumes (Soaked and cooked at home, or canned with no added ingredients)
- Meats/Poultry/Eggs** (Preferably, grass-fed, pasture-raised, and roaming)
- Fish and seafood** (Preferably wild caught and not farm raised.)
*If Frozen, chose those with only fruits/vegetables and nothing additional.
** Healthy (ideal) options for meats, poultry, fish, and seafood will be your most expensive choice of real foods. Real fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and nuts/seeds are more affordable options.
