General Nutrition Tips

  • Establish a diet based on real, whole, plant-based, and nonprocessed foods
  • Go organic whenever possible

  • Choose seasonal, local produce
  • Consume raw, steamed, or stir-fried vegetables
  • Graze: eat regularly throughout the day (5-6 meals)

  • Think “healthy” at the grocery store: shop along the store perimeter
  • Choose “Extra Virgin” olive oil and cook with coconut oil or hemp oil only
