Eating Clean Whole Food Nutrition
The quality of food we put into our mouths determines most of the quality of our health. 75% of our concerns can be reduced when we are eating better quality, cleaner foods. It is the reason many are developing health issues and food sensitivities or allergies today.

Clean nutrition is choosing foods to eat that are:
- Organic or above organic (free from chemicals in growing or processing) is what you want to choose. Many foods are sprayed with chemicals and added hormones (meat and dairy) that we eat are not meant for our bodies even in small amounts. Yes, these foods do cost more up front but the payback in better preventive health pays you back with less health issues that cost way more later on to treat in my opinion.
- Choose Non-GMO (genetically modified organisms). Foods that scientists, consumer and environmental groups have identified with many health and environmental risks. Be aware of what these foods do.
- Avoid processed foods (pre-packaged/premade, especially desserts, breakfast cereals) with preservatives, added sugars, high fructose corn syrup, high sodium, colors, and more.
- Be educated about ingredients. Read package labels before you buy them at the store. To help you, a grocery app you can try is “fooducate” to help make better buying decisions.
When you look at the food on your plate, 65% should be foods of color (red, green, yellow and orange. Not all brown). This means food that is alive and has good quality nutrition. What colors are your meals?
Choose palm size portions. This helps from over eating or when your eyes are bigger than your stomach.

3. Always use organic or pesticide free, non GMO, home grown fruits, veggies, etc. ingredients if possible. I buy most of my fruits. berries and veggies, greens organic from Costco. To prevent them from going bad before I can use them up, I freeze them.
4. Be aware of the top dirty dozen fruits and vegetables that should always be organic and the clean 15 that are less pesticide free in your smoothie.
5. If you like your smoothie creamier use organic rice or almond milk, banana or doTERRA protein powder (chocolate, vanilla and orange cream) are very good!.
