All of these foods should come from organic, responsible sources. If they aren’t, then you should be VERY afraid of these foods.
1) RED MEAT. Grass fed of course. Although I don’t recommend eating it every day, red meat is packed with protein and healthy (yes healthy) fats. Also a good source of magnesium, calcium, omega 6 and 3, and vitamin B and E.
2) SALT. Unrefined from untainted waters. AKA: Not the stuff in the salt shaker at a restaurant. That’s sodium chloride. Real salt from the sea is essential to the body for electrolyte balance. It’s also important for regulating blood pressure and carrying nutrients in and out of cells. Plus, if used correctly, it can bring out the flavor in food.
3) NUTS. Raw. Yes, nuts are high in calories and fat. But they’re also packed with protein and will keep you full for hours, which usually leads to eating less calories throughout the day from poor sources. They’re also rich in antioxidants, fiber, and vitamins.
4) HONEY. Unprocessed, raw, and local. True, honey is high in sugar, and at the top of the glycemic index. However, if your diet is clean, you can afford some healthy sweets. Honey is one of them. It’s loaded with antioxidants, supports immune function, and is essential in treating allergies. It’s also a great substitute when recipes call for sugar.
5) EGGS. The whole damn egg!!!! Free range/Pastured. If it’s high quality, eat the whole damn thing. Everything good about the egg is in the yolk: more protein, omegas, choline, and antioxidants. Eggs do NOT give you high cholesterol. Even if they do, Cholesterol is NOT linked to heart disease. That’s a lie.
