WHAT WHOLE FOOD LOOKS LIKE, YES!

SUMMARY: Learn what whole food looks like. Such are anti-inflammatory and nutrient dense; the key to reducing, managing and even reversing chronic disease.

Seems in today’s lifestyle, what whole food looks like is confusing.  Is it the steaming hot prepared buffet luring you with it’s smells and convenience such even appearing at Whole Foods grocery stores?

A check of ingredients will show if it is pure, clean, delicious, and properly prepared real nourishing whole food.  Such is anti-inflammatory and nutrient dense. I am excited that you are learning this concept!

Adhering to an anti-inflammatory diet is the answer to reducing, managing, and even reversing chronic disease. 

Through diet we  increase anti-inflammatory Omega-3 fatty acids, decrease inflammatory (Omega-6 fatty acids, and food intolerances), and increase fruits and vegetables to increase antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. High quality meat, grains, and diary have a place in a nutrient dense diet but learning food quality and individual tolerance is critical for optimizing health.
