Why aren’t you eating the meals that you love?
There are many healthier options for making the meals we grew up on without sacrificing taste, your waistline or your health.
- 2 slices of Ezekiel raisin bread (buy gluten free bread if you have issues with wheat or gluten. One of my favorite brand is FOOD FOR LIFE)
- 1 tbs Ghee or purified butter (organic, grass-fed, pasture-raised is the best for you)
Did you know? Ghee that is made from grass fed cows is higher in CLA. It also contains butyric acid a short-chain fatty acid that acts as a detoxifier and improves colon health. It’s been shown to support healthy insulin levels, is an anti-inflammatory, and may be helpful for individuals suffering from IBS, Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Vitamin K2 is another great fat-soluble vitamin in ghee that helps to protect against tooth decay, supports proper growth and development of bones, and protects against the calcification of the arteries. There are many more studies of the benefits of ghee, to many to mention here.
- 2 slices of Smoked Gouda cheese alternative (dairy, lactose, casein & soy free)
- 1/4 Avocado
Avocados are a great source of healthy fats as well as vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium and potassium. They also provide lutein, beta-carotene and omega-3 fatty acids. Avocados improved digestion, they are high in fiber, with approximately 6-7 grams per half fruit. Eating foods with natural fiber is a natural detoxifier that can help to prevent constipation, maintain a healthy digestive tract and lower the risk of colon cancer. Recent studies have shown that dietary fiber may also play a role in regulating the immune system and inflammation. Oh, and! Lets not forget how they help your skin glow. 🙂
