Modern day foods and poor diets have left Americans today struggling with digestive issues, nutrient deficiency, blood sugar imbalance and lots of systemic inflammation.
Fortunately, with a change in our nutrition we can change these things. Here are some things to focus on:
1) Keep you blood sugar Levels balanced - The best way to do this is to ensure that you are including healthy fats and protein in every meal. This will help slow down the release of glucose after you eat. Choosing high quality carbohydrate sources will help as well. Think sweet potatoes, oats, sprouted grain breads, and fruit.
2) Limit Omega - 6 fats and consume more Omega-3 fats - By decreasing high inflammatory omega-6 fats such as highly processed grains and polyunsaturated oils and increasing the number of Omega-3 fatty acids from foods like salmon, eggs, and grass fed meat, we can start to reverse the damage caused.
3) Avoid Fake Foods - It is best to eat foods in their natural forms. Avoid processed foods and anything with preservatives, fake sugars and unnatural chemicals.
4) Boost Micronutrients - Every time you eat be sure to load up your plate with lots of brightly colored fruits and veggies. This will help increase your vitamin and mineral intake.
Be sure to use these tips when choosing foods to consume regularly and choose healthy, all natural ingredients for all meals.
