To Eat, and Not To Eat – Day 5

To Eat

All Natural Ingredients

I make it a point to eat foods with natural ingredients that have not been modified or processed. Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, lean meats, and low-fat dairy that are fresh and in their natural state are the best options.

Not To Eat

Artificial Ingredients/Chemicals

It was during my junior high and high school days that we were in the “low fat” diet era. In order to lower fat intake, we ended up eating high processed, chemical-filled food. From Diet Coke, to Snackwell cookies, to Lean Cuisine meals, we were filling our bodies with artificial junk. (Confession- I do love a Diet Coke with a good slice of pizza 🙂 )These products still fill many of our grocery store shelves.  Check out Dr. Oz’s article on artificial sweeteners and other substitutes.
