The world of food is very confusing and overwhelming with so many choices! I made a little break down of Best and Worst choices to try and help make it easier. You can substitute healthier choices into ANY recipe! Your body will love you for it!

~Meat and Other Protein~ (1 serv of meat = 4-6 oz)
BEST Choices
WORST Choices

White lean meat
Fried meats, Red meat
Lower-fat cuts of meat, Buffalo
Higher-fat cuts of meat
Turkey bacon -Nitrate free, uncured
Pork bacon
Raw unsalted nuts and seeds, almonds, cashew, peanuts, brazil nuts, walnuts, hazel nuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, Chia seeds, Flax Seeds, Hemp hearts… (Make sure seeds are ground up so the body can absorb them).
Roasted, salted, flavored nuts

*FYI: Peanut Butter is considered a roasted nut… Unless you buy raw peanut butter or make your own.. Roasting nuts changes the molecules in the oil and it is no longer beneficial for your body, leading to weight gain, and contributing to clogged arteries…….
