Choose Non-GMO foods

GMOs are in 80% of processed foods, making them hard to avoid but not impossible. Companies often label food as “natural” even though they may be heavily processed. When avoidng GMOs it is crucial to always read nutritional labels and ingredient lists. Choosing food that is certified Non-GMO and USDA Organic will ensure that the foods you are buying are GMO free.

Whole Foods

Choosing whole foods is important when improving your health. Whole foods are foods that have not been stripped of any nutrients and they do not have any added sugars, salts, etc. It is food in its natural state as it should be. When choosing whole foods make choices like brown rice instead of white or making your own juice and choose fresh, local and organic foods such as fish, meat, veggies etc. Adding whole foods will greatly improve your health while also adding delicious flavor.

Organic Food

Organically grown food generally tastes better as well. Plus, you are getting more vitamins, nutrients, minerals, enzymes, and micronutrients all while avoiding GMOs at the same.

Raw Foods

Certain raw foods hold more nutrients than cooked foods. Heating food kills the vitamins and minerals you get from eating raw foods such as fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. Adding more raw foods into your diet will give you more nutrients such as antioxidants and vitamin C. Raw foods are a great addition for all diets.

More Water

Our bodies are 90% water and we need water for almost every function. Good hydration will reduce cravings for junk food and aid in weight loss. Drinking more water will help flush out unwanted toxins in our bodies and boost our immune system. Consider substituting soda and sugary juices for water this will keep you hydrated and increase your calorie intake.

Most of our food is highly processed and chemically treated making it nearly impossible for our bodies to properly digest. Avoiding those foods and adding these steps to your daily diet will greatly improve your health both inside and out. Remember, avoid GMOs, drink more water, and add more raw, organic and whole foods!
