Eat real food

The more real food I eat the less I want that comes in a box or carton or can, and the better I feel! Real food comes from trees and chickens, the ocean and rivers, from vines and shrubs and other plants. And the less processed the better.

1. If you take daily medication, drink a glass with each pill you take.

Healthy Eating Starts with Healthy Shopping

NEVER shop for food when you are hungry OR when you are stuffed. Shop around the perimeter of the store, that's where most of the fresh food is found, and avoid the middle aisles where you find the processed stuff. Try one new fruit or vegetable every week.
