How to start your journey to uncomplicated food.
Here’s some simple steps you can take to improve your family’s health.
Drink quality water
- Consider purchasing a water filter system for you drinking water.
- Tap water is tested when treated chemically by your municipality.
- It’s not tested at your tap after travelling through miles of lead pipes
- Nor is it tested for residual pharmaceuticals
- Bottled water contains leached BPA from the plastic which can be linked to many types of cancer
Drink more water
- Your entire digestive process depends on water to absorb the nutrition of the food eaten.
- From start to finish – saliva to urine – you need it!
Read the label
- Can you pronounce the ingredients – or do you need a science degree?
- Unnecessary chemicals listed on the label are used as artificial flavours, stabilizers, colour enhancers, thickners, and for other dubious purposes.
- Chemicals slow down the digestive process, making your body work harder and possibly damaging organs.
- Dehydrated fruits include several extra chemicals
- Alive food doesn’t have a date stamped on it.
- Expiry dates = chemicals = reduced nutritional value (dead food)
- These chemicals can negatively impact the good bacteria in your digestive tract, weakening your body’s defenses
- Think fresh baked bread – will last 3-4 days while store-bought bread will last 7-10 days because of the chemicals
- Think cold cut meats – compared to freshly cooked meat. Why all the extra chemicals?
Eat Vegetables – all colours
- Great source of fibre, minerals and water
- Seasonal will have the best nutrition
- Local vegetables have higher nutritional content because they are fresher and harvested at their peak, rather than those that are harvested early and traveled on a truck for a week.
- Try to shop at a farmer’s market for more varieties you don’t see in your grocery store.
