Healing Foods and What They Replace

Most people agree that how you eat can definitely affect how you feel. Food can be your friend or food can be your foe.  When you eat a healthy variety of organic fruits and vegetables, grass-fed meats and dairy, sprouted or sourdough grains and healthy fats combined with lots of fresh, clean water you feel energized and full of life!

Consuming healthy, healing foods can actually detoxify and rid your body of many ailments.  On the contrary, when your diet consists mainly of processed and high sugar foods along with fast food, soda pop and supercharged drinks, you feel bloated, lethargic and often times downright sick.  Over time, this unhealthy way of eating can be very damaging to your health.

If you tend to eat on the run with little thought to what goes into your body and the bodies of your kids, start with just a few changes by mixing in these healing foods as much as possible.  As you start to feel better, you will want t

Try these healing foods (instead of…)

Raspberries, Blackberries, Strawberries and Blueberries (organic is best) – [replace jello and fruit snacks]

Berries are great sources of anthocyanins (bioflavinoids) which boosts insulin production and helps lower blood sugar levels. Other excellent sources include grapes, cherries, eggplant, red cabbage and green tea.

Sourdough Bread, Sprouted Whole Grains and Beans  [replace processes whole wheat and white breads and baked beans]

Increasing your fiber intake not only improves regularity but it helps detoxify your body, reduces cholesterol and boosts your immune system and reduce the risk of breast cancer in women.  Shoot for over 30 grams/day.

Olive Oil (or coconut/sesame/peanut/flax) – [replace canola and other vegetable oils]

Olive oil is particularly high in antioxidants and have been shown to improve heart health by raising HDL and lower LDL Cholesterol.

Grass Fed Meat and Dairy [replace commercially raised beef, chicken and dairy]

Animals raised on pasture vs corn and grain have much less total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, and calories. They also have a plethora of healthy fats, including omega-3 fatty acids and CLA, and more beta-carotene, vitamin C and E.  Animals unnaturally raised on corn and grain and commonly injected with hormones and fed growth-promoting additives definitely compromise your health.

Wild caught, cold water fish  [replace farm-raised “feedlot” fish]

Wild fish from cold, clean waters that live on marine and plant life are packed with vitamins, minerals, protein and omega-3 fatty acids.  In contrast, “feed lot” fish swim in concrete tanks and feast on man made pellets that they were not designed to eat.

Red, Yellow, Orange and Dk Green Fruits and Veggies  (Organic is best) – [replace fruit chips and dehydrated fruit with added sugar]

These colorful healing foods contain carotenoids which is what give them their bright  pigments. Carotenoids can help prevent vitamin A deficiency, protect body from free radical damage and macular degeneration, enhance immune system.  They have also gotten a lot of attention as potential anti-cancer and anti-aging compounds.

Dark Chocolate (the darker the better) – [replace milk or white chocolate]

Like green tea and berries, Dark Chocolate is full of natural antioxidants which  as mentioned before,  help prevent cardiovascular disease, premature aging and cancer.  Another benefit…because it has a low glycemic index, dark chocolate does not send your blood sugar spiking.

Although there are hundreds of naturally healing foods to choose from, these provide a very good and simple starting point. The more you healthy choices you make, the better you will feel and the easier it will become.
