"Naturopathic medicine supports the body's innate ability to heal itself"
First there was the Food Rainbow of healthy eating, then followed the Food Pyramid. Both are failures at helping you achieve a balanced weight and a healthy body. Grains should NOT comprise the bulk of our diets! Ask anyone what the healthiest food group is, and most will knowingly say fruits and vegetables, and they're right - mostly. Vegetables alone should contain the bulk of our diets! Whenever possible add vegetables to whatever you're eating. If you're having eggs & bacon on the weekend - add some salsa, or some yams with onions and garlic. For snacks, lean towards vegetables and have a small handful of almonds, or some hummus as an easy and nutritious option.
Making little changes over time goes a long way in achieving a healthy body.
When you know better, you do better!
