What I’m eating and not eating much of these days…

The Black List:

  • Red Meat. Basically I’m only eating lean, organic turkey or chicken, fish and shellfish.
  • Dairy Products. This is a tough one, but it’s so worth it in the end!
  • Gluten. I recently added this to my list. It’s another tough one…
  • Saturated Fats… as little as possible, which is much easier without the dairy and red meat.
  • High Fructose Corn syrup
  • Trans Fats, also know as Hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils found in many processed foods! Please do your homework on these!

The Green List… Eat more:

  • Omega 3’s! Good fats found in Salmon, Tuna, hemp seeds, flaxseed and more!!
  • Olive oil, flaxseed oil
  • Kale, spinach, avocado
  • Fruits high in antioxidants
  • As many Raw Foods as possible!
  • Healthy herbs and spices.
  • Take your supplements
