1. Carbohydrates

The carbs to LEAVE OFF your plate include processed cereals, chips, gluten-containing breads, soda, and refined desserts; these are the simple carbs that spike your blood sugar and burn up quickly, leaving you hungry for more.

The carbs to PUT ON your plate are grains like oats and millet, legumes such as lentils, and vegetables: sweet potatoes, beets, artichokes, peas, carrots, corn, and winter squash.

Carbs are great energy sources for your body, and they provide ample vitamins, minerals, and fiber, as long as you choose organic versions.

2. Fats

Healthy fats are essential for strong cell membranes and side effects of lack of include lackluster skin, brittle hair and nails, cravings, and weight gain.

Top-notch fats are plant-based, unsaturated fats like olive oil and grapeseed oils, coconut oil, wild caught fish and algae. We need omega fatty acids in our diet because our bodies don’t make them.

More examples: salmon, sardines, walnuts, chic seeds, shelled hemp seeds, ground flaxseed.

3. Proteins

If you want to grow strong collagen, elastin, and keratin then your friends are a variety of plant-based proteins, with the addition of some specific animal proteins like pasteurized eggs, wild salmon, sardines, and oysters.

Varying the proteins in your diet is the best way to supply your body with a well-rounded supply of amino acids, the components that make up proteins.
