Can you feel the heat? What can I eat?
What in the world can I eat?
Over the past many years of convenience eating/foods, we have gotten far from clean eating and whole foods.
God made our bodies and He made food. Our bodies were made to process foods with ingredients that come in their natural state. Going through a factory and having artificial ingredients is harder for our bodies to process. We end up with low energy, weight gain and feeling generally crappy.
I work with diabetics in my practice in the medical field. Time and again they will tell me that they had been putting sugar-free, no-carb creamer in their coffee and didn’t understand why their blood sugars still shot up. Once they removed the chemically-laden creamer and only used natural sources such as stevia or milk in their coffee, their blood sugars settled down.
Our bodies don’t know what to do with those chemicals so don’t put them inside of you!
The solution is to get back to basics.
Eat real food.
I look at labels and try to buy very few things that come in packages.
More vegetables, more fish/low-inflammation protein sources, fruit, healthy fats.
Fats: avocado, coconut oil, olive oil, nuts & seeds
Protein: eggs, fish, collagen, bone broth (especially for digestive issues), tofu, edamame, occasional poultry and beef, dairy if you tolerate it
Veggies: all (some are higher in natural sugar—again, Moderation!)
Fruit: all (some are higher in sugar—again, Moderation!)
Carbs: best sources come from root veggies (potatoes, sweet potatoes, beets, carrots, turnips, jicama, etc) and fruit
Start by eliminating processed foods and anything with chemicals.
Watch how your body reacts.
