You are what you eat: Educate Yourself Here on Food and Recipes

Basic Guidelines: Do not eat things out of boxes or cans.  Eat as fresh as possible.  If you must eat something out of a box or can, make sure it is not a processed food.  Eat fresh, simple, proteins, vegetables ad libum and whole fats.  Do not eat things that have been broken apart into partial foods--like low fat, or pasteurized.  Eat raw, organic, pesticide free whole foods.  Go light on grain.  If you eat grains, eat unprocessed whole grains. Strive to have about 5 colors of food on your plate except for white.  Stay away from the whites: white flour, white sugar, potatoes, etc.
