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)
