The beginning of eating healthy is to “Stop the Poison!” We can spend a great deal of time, money, and willpower to eat more fruits and veggies and other healthy habits, but sabotage our efforts by eating toxins — even if it’s only “every once in a while.”
These are substances to eliminate… zero tolerance!
- Transfats or Partially Hydrogenated Oils
- Refined Sugar (includes sugar and high-fructose corn syrup)
- Artificial Sweeteners
- Chemical Additives — artificial colors, artificial flavors, preservatives, dough conditioners, etc.
- White Flour
