PANTRY: 3 STEPS FOR A HEALTHY PURGE

 

It's February 1st.  How are you coming on those health resolutions?  If you're finding the same ol' behaviors creeping back into your daily routine, or you're still seeing signs of inflammation and sickness, there is a simple solution: Reboot your pantry!

 

Processed and packaged foods, canned goods and, yes, grains contain few nutrients and many empty calories. Taking action to purge the most offensive foods in the Standard American Diet is a worthwhile goal for anyone. 


The first priority is to eliminate the greatest health hazard in today’s food: Chemically altered fats - canola, vegetable, corn, soy, sunflower and safflower oils . These are found in an array of heavily processed snacks and meal products, including frozen items.

Second in priority is to eliminate or at least drastically cut back on the consumption of sweet, sugary foods and beverages. Sugar offers no nutritional value, compromises immune function (sugar competes with vitamin C), and has a pro-inflammatory effect on the body.  A pattern of high sugar intake leads to excess body fat and elevated disease risk.  

Processed food takes little effort to eat, making it attractive for mindless eating.  It is also way too easy to digest.  No wonder processed food isn't very filling.  The energy required to break down whole foods is twice that of processed food! 

The third priority is to transition out of a grain-based diet and replace it with a diet based on more nutrient-dense, less insulin-stimulating foods, like vegetables, proteins, good fats, seeds, nuts and fruit.
