Did you know that bread is highly processed and lacks nutrients? It is also difficult to digest, gummy, and clogs your intestines. Instead, make a Body Ecology "sandwich" using a romaine lettuce leaf or nori seaweed as the "bread" and a variety of tasty fillings, like fresh cut vegetables or artichoke paté. Wrap it up for a healthy lunchtime treat that is more nutritious than your standard sandwich - not to mention more delicious...
Want to boost your energy for a long day or work OR for improved sports performance? Instead of an energy drink that robs your energy in the long-term, try InnergyBiotic. InnergyBiotic builds your health, immunity and energy from the inside out. Drink to your health with InnergyBiotic.
When you truly need a crunchy snack, Donna Gates, the founder of the Body Ecology diet, suggests: Blue corn chips (the brands that do not use refined canola and DO use high oleic sunflower oil) with a serving of cultured vegetables. Tangy and full of probiotics to populate and heal your intestines, cultured vegetables should be a staple of your diet. Serve them with chips, and you won't miss your old snacks.
Arico Foods offers a gluten-free, casein free chip made with palm oil called the Cassava Chip. Cassava has twice the fiber and 40% less fat than the common potato chip.
Pasta is made from flour and eggs that are mucus-forming in your intestines. They are gummy and sticky and create an environment that feeds pathogenic yeast and bacteria. As an alternative, try konjaku noodles (also known as shirataki), a calorie and gluten-free option that is high in fiber and helps create a healthy gut. Konjaku/shirataki noodles also absorb the flavor of the food you add to them. You can make them taste great by adding your favorite seasonings. This Shirataki Miracle Noodle combines with proteins or starches to make a variety of tasty and healthy meals.
Just because you eat a healthy diet doesn't mean that you have to give up delicious foods. Follow our guide and slowly begin to substitute healthier options for your typical fare to enjoy greater energy and vitality than ever before, one meal at a time. Bon appetit!
