I’m not sure if you’ve ever noticed, but when it comes to making informed food choices there is enough information out there to make your head spin.
- Should you follow the Atkins, Paleo, South Beach or Zone diet?
- Should you go gluten-free, keto, or buy everything organic? What about intermittent fasting or detoxing?
- Should you go high carb, low fat (HCLF) OR low carb, high fat (LCHF)?
When did eating become so complicated? How do we make sense of it all? Don’t you wish someone would make it simple and straightforward?
Don’t mind if I do…
Eat. Real. Food.
Whole food. Food that’s close to the source. Food with few ingredients on the label, or better yet … no label at all.
Because real food has a high nutrient-density — meaning there are a lot of nutrients per calorie — which leaves you pleasantly satisfied and well nourished rather than hangry and craving more.
Real food regulates your hormones, helping you work with them rather than against them.
Real food fosters a healthy gut bacteria and immune system, both of which are integral to feeling your best.
Remember the simplicity of real food at your next meal. What will you put on your plate?
