WHAT TO EAT or My New List of Go-To Foods

Joy of Joys.... to be healthy! What foods will get me there?
For starters, some foods just don’t agree with me: dairy, garbanzos, possibly the nightshade family, and yes, even corn products. To get me a list, I’ll search anti-inflammatory foods and the Blood Type O diet.
2/3 of diet should be from fruits, vegetables, whole grains.
1/3 of diet from low fat dairy and lean protein (grass fed! for vit.K2)
Sodium brings in fluid and nutrients to the body.
Potassium flushes toxins out!
Limit Carbs to 15 grams a day, during weight loss, of sugars and grains

Seasonings: Celery seed (potassium, antibacterial!),
Cinnamon, Cloves
Ginger, Turmeric
Mint
Marjoram, Oregano, Thyme,

    BonnieRandall, I'm jealous. What do you hunt?
    I'm in Southern California and not sure there is much to hunt nearby.
    However, we are somewhat rural here, and I do have cottontails on property.
    I've heard they tend to be wormy though. Not sure if it's a rumor to keep us from hunting them or not.
