An episode of Wine About It, my weekly Facebook live show @Basically It Meals Thursdays at 5:30, had me on my soapbox!
When it comes to living your life, you are way better off listening to your body than counting points, calories or macros.
Listening can be a challenge when most of us have been tuned out to what is happening in there since we hit puberty. It all starts with slowing down.
We don’t even realize how important what we put in our bodies is….
I am rarely so black and white about nutrition. For a lot of foods and lifestyle habits, there is a gray area; a lot of subjectivity.
But I also love it when things are super simple when they are really clear.
Ann Wigmore makes it really clear here; food is either medicine or poison. That’s it. No ifs, ands or buts. There is medicine, and there is poison.
Now, it’s ok to eat “poison” now and again. This isn’t the cyanide type poison that is going to kill you instantly, as you well know if you’ve had a Cheeto or a bowl of ice cream.
You don’t have to actively think before taking a bite of cheeseburger “my God, I’m about to eat poison!”, that would stunt your life, but you should have awareness around the food you eat. Acknowledge that a daily fast food run isn’t your medicine.
The message here is to really focus on our diets consisting...
There is definitely a hierarchy when it comes to food. Yes, some have more nutrients than others and will help you achieve better health.
What are the healthiest foods to eat?
Dark leafy greens
Richly colored berries
Nuts and seeds
Wild caught fish
These are all INCREDIBLY easy to get in your diet if you are cooking at home (or hire someone to cook for you).

This was one of the coolest things I learned while I was getting my nutrition degree.
The colors in plants mark the nutrients they contain. We can literally color ourselves healthy by eating all these colors,
COLOR is how we nourish our bodies!! Whatever you're eating day in and day out, it should be full of COLOR!
The nutrients in our foods are marked by color
More color means more variety of nutrients
Colors mean anti-aging and anti-disease
Do you think this is as cool as I do?
