Ten Golden Rules for Great Health


1. Drink plenty of clean (filtered or spring) water. Rule of thumb is to drink half your body weight in ounces of water per day. Make sure that your drinking water is free from chlorine and fluoride. Also, drink out of glass, ceramics or stainless steel, not plastic.

2. Eat small amounts of protein often. Eat approximately every three hours, or when you feel hungry. Rule of thumb is to divide your body weight by 15 to get the number of protein ounces you should eat per day--- eat this protein over 3-5 meals.

3. Get your carbohydrates from veggies and fruits- limit grains and sugars. Eat twice as many vegetables as fruits. Juicing is okay, but never juice your fruits-- eat them, don't drink them.

4. Eat real whole food. Don't eat anything that won't eventually spoil.

5.Try to eat local, "wild" produce and meats. The higher price is worth its value because of the extra vitamins and minerals you receive. And it tastes better too!

6. Avoid processed foods and artificial sweeteners. Avoid "diet" foods and foods that make health claims. Avoid foods with long ingredient lists and words you can't pronounce.

7. Eat healthy unrefined natural fats and oils like butter, coconut oil (for cooking) and olive oil (for dressings).

8. Avoid unfermented soy products like soy milk and tofu. Instead, eat fermented soy like miso, tamari and tempeh. Eat plenty of other raw fermented foods like sauerkraut. (From the refrigerated section, not the aisles.)

9. Use unrefined sea salt that hasn't been bleached white. Our favorite is Redmond's Real Salt, which we sell in the office!

10. Enjoy your food! Savor it. Eat slowly in a relaxed state, sitting down. Food is a source of joy, not a source of stress. Try to share your mealtime with someone else.

We hope this helps!
