READ THE LABEL
The next time that you go grocery shopping at your favorite super market and make the decision that you want an item packaged in either a metal, or glass, or plastic, or paper, or other type of container, read the label—-especially the section that lists the ingredients.
For illustration purposes, let’s assume that you pick up a container of spinach whose label is quite appealing. Now, on a small piece of paper, write the ingredients on it. After doing so, walk around to the fresh vegetable section and pick up a hand full of spinach. Compare what’s written on the piece of paper to what’s in your hand.
Keep in mind that on certain days you feel good and certain days you feel horrible. Could it be that certain ingredients that you eat do not agree with your personal metabolism?
This kind of exercise can go a long way in helping you figure out what’s in your best interest. Once you determine which ingredients are the culprits in causing you to feel bad, you’ll want to stay clear of them. When you know better, you do better.
Let me know what your favorite ingredients are—-those you’re eating with your favorite food/dish.
To Your Better Health,
