What to Eat, When to Eat it, Where to Buy it and How to Cook it

Passionate about good food and its importance to optimal health, I’ll help you navigate the treacherous waters of our toxic food environment and keep you up to date on the latest research and developments in the food industry. I’ll tell you what to eat, when to eat it, where to buy it and how to cook it!

My nutrition philosophy is very simple: Eat fresh whole food in its most natural state, most of the time. What does “most of the time” mean? It means that 80 to 90% of the time you pay strict attention to what crosses your lips. Perfection is overrated. You have to live a little.  That said, I do have some parameters.

Here are the main points of my nutrition philosophy:

1. Pick your poison

2. Be only as restrictive as is necessary to get to your goal

3. If Mother Nature didn’t make it and you can’t pronounce it, don’t eat it!

4. No weapons of mass destruction:

  • a. high fructose corn syrup (HFCS)
  • b. hydrogenated fats
  • c. artificial sweeteners, dyes, flavorings, etc.
  • d fast food
  • e. soda

5. No GMO’s as best you can. GMO’s are not labeled so try to avoid the major GM crops which are corn, soy, cotton and canola. Cotton (as cottonseed oil) and Canola oil are most often found in packaged food. Corn and soy are also found as oils but corn and soy derivatives are found in numerous forms in packaged processed foods as well. Soy lecithin, hydrolyzed yeast extract, textured vegetable protein, dextrose and maltodextrin are just a few. If you don’t recognize it, don’t eat it!
