Eat. Real. Food.

May 19, 2020

If you’re reading this blog, there’s a good chance you care about your health, have health concerns that you want to improve, or are simply trying to learn more about nutrition. 

You have come to the right place if you also want to:

I have a simple solution.   Ready?  Drum roll please…….

Eat. Real. Food.

Yup, that’s really all it takes.  There’s no need to stress over anything else except making sure your food is REAL.  Instead of obsessing too much about calories vs fat vs carbs vs portions, make it a priority to pay attention to the TYPES of food you are consuming.  This could mean the difference between success and failure. 

There are alarming reports that show the health decline of civilizations with the introduction of processed foods.

Think simply.

Real Food grows and dies. It isn’t created.
Real Food rots, wilts, and becomes generally unappetizing, typically rather quickly.
Real Food doesn’t need an ingredient label (and probably isn’t in a package either).
Real Food doesn’t have celebrity endorsements.
Real Food doesn’t make health claims

Let’s take a look at some food options to see if they pass the Real Food test:

Broccoli – yep, real food that will rot
Steak – mmmm, most certainly real food from a real animal (and if that cow ate grass, even better!)
Cookies, Muffins, Coffeecake, Donuts – have you ever taken the time to read the long ingredient list??
Eggs – last I checked my chicken coop for eggs, I’m pretty sure those eggs came straight from the chicken, so…yes, real food.
Almonds, Walnuts, Pecans – bingo!
Pop-Tarts – kidding….just making sure you’re still paying attention.

When you eat real food, your body begins to function as it should and digestion will improve significantly. Forget about glycemic indexes (no one gets fat eating carrots!) and concentrate on eating simple, real food. People get fat by eating fake food, food that is created. Instead, choose food that does not come from a factory, but simply exists.

Eat real food and you will no longer need vitamin supplements. Your body is much more efficient at utilizing, absorbing, and retaining vitamin and minerals from real food as opposed to laboratory-produced pills – which end up being excreted more often than you realize.

Ok, so maybe some of you have lived the convenience-food lifestyle for some time (and perhaps your health is showing the effects of such a lifestyle), but if you follow the suggestions and recipes in this blog and choose food that is whole and unprocessed, I can tell you that in no time, you will begin to shed excess fat and resolve nagging health issues.

It really is that simple.

There you have it! We hope this helped you think about the food your consuming. We would love to hear from you! If you have any questions or comments let us know on instagram at @saluslifestyles.
