What is healthy food these days? If you listen to commercials, it’s everyone’s product. We know that isn’t true don’t we? The solution is to STOP watching commercials! They are designed to lie or at least manipulate the truth to sell you a product. We should be eating mostly what God or nature made not what man makes for a profit. Here are some tips even for non vegetarians:

  1. Meat should be the smallest portion on your plate not more than once per day
  2. Substitute fish for meat. Tuna looks and tastes like a steak
  3. Substitute veggie burgers for hamburgers. There are a large variety of veggie burgers out there. Try them and choose one you really like. Load it up with tomato, onion, lettuce but avoid ketchup (it’s high in sugars)
  4. Try veggie hot dogs. Whole Foods has some great ones that you can’t tell from meat versions.
  5. Vegetables should be a large portion not with butter or salad dressing and slightly cooked so they are crunchy
  6. Fruits should be eaten often as a snack or breakfast
  7. Nuts and seeds are very good for you, mix up the types but avoid peanuts
  8. Avoid bread but if you do eat it then buy artesian type multi grain
  9. Avoid desserts at all costs eat fruit
  10. Don’t eat a lot of potatoes or corn
  11. Mix up your vegetables and fruits. Try new ones. Pick from a wide variety of colors.
  12. If you must eat dessert choose something not very sweet or make bananas in a blender with ice until it is ice cream consistency. It is sweet and delicious but it contains only fruit and water
  13. Don’t over eat! Eat 5 small (very small) meals instead of 3 larger ones
  14. Limit alcohol to one glass of wine a day
  15. DO NOT EAT FRIED FOODS
  16. DO NOT EAT FAST FOOD
  17. DO NOT EAT MOSTLY PROCESSED FOODS FROM A CAN, BOX or FROZEN PACKAGE
  18. DO NOT EAT SAMPLES AT SUPERMARKETS
  19. DO NOT EAT OUT OF A LARGE BAG OR CONTAINER! YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO STOP
