The Only Food List You Need To Feel And Look Healthy – Finally

Last week I posted a question on our Facebook page and asked you to state your least favourite part about aging. Not surprisingly, the number one answer centered on your aches and pains and was followed quickly by weight gain.  Once you cross 40, the “you are what you eat ” phrase becomes the  Bible truth. To prevent pain, disease and the fat from piling on requires a rethink of what we put into our bodies.  I know a lot of people struggle with the idea of going vegan but whether you add meat to the food list below or not, this grouping of super high nutrient foods that are also budget-friendly staples is just plain god for you.

If you are not a vegan,  add lean meat or fish if you must. If you are vegan,  please focus on legumes, greens, and omega 3  as they tend to have the most of the hard to get nutrients. Whatever category you fall in, there is always a  need to be mindful of what you eat and the portions you consume.

Happy shopping and please check out the video below!
