Does it not seem like every week another pop-up advertisement is pushing a new “superfood” or diet trick?
How can we decipher which foods we should eat regularly when there are so many diet/nutrition plans out there? Browsing through the bookstore I have found numerous books on paleo plans as well as plans that eliminate or cut down sugar intake. Studying these books as well as researching additional nutritionists guidelines, I have narrowed down to what seems to be the most popular trending three foods in each category for health and weight management.
Everything below needs to be non-GMO & organic:
This is hard because there are so many great vegetables that you should consume to your heart’s content with no limit (see my link on top 10 vegetables). Try to eat one of these three for at least 1 serving daily:
Dairy or Dairy substitutes:
Yogurt or a non-dairy source of probiotics
Raw goat’s milk
Nut milks (almond, cashew, etc.)
Wild caught fish
Organ meats (reminder – free range, grass-fed only)
Hemp seeds or powder
Tempeh or Tofu (non-processed, of course – this is different than soybean oils and processed soy in GMO-laden fast-foods)
Grains or grain-substitutes:
Almonds or Walnuts (tie)
Olive oil (for drizzling, not cooking)
Baking (added one extra item for flavoring in this category)
Local Honey or molasses
So, how many of these foods do you eat each week? If you counted five or less, try to add a couple of these each week and see how you begin to feel.
