How do you eat good, clean food without all the processed foods and sugar?!

Healthy Grocery Shopping

We often run into questions about healthy eating. This is a popular question for anyone who is just getting started on their Health and Wellness journey:

How do you eat good, clean food without all the processed foods and sugar?!


An answer from one of our fans:

Fill up the cart exclusively in the produce aisle. Pretend the rest of the store doesn’t exist. Use the front of the cart for the final touches: meats, condiments, salsa, feta cheese.

Load up on:

  • potatoes
  • celery
  • tomatoes
  • eggplant
  • zucchini
  • onions/shallots

These items can be used in place of many typical ingredients, or can get a meal going.

Examples of substitutes:
Spaghetti = zucchini or eggplant
Lasagna = eggplant

Think: Beyond America

  • Mediterranean meals
  • Chinese meals
  • Japanese meals
  • Thai meals
  • Mexican meals

America is about the only country stuck on sugar!

Steel cut oats

Leftovers from last night, please!
Nuts, hummus

Stir fry
Steak + potatoes!
Beans!! Chili!

Tim Ferriss’ 4 Hour Body has the easiest, most effective food plan if you want to try something easy. But cutting out sugar (and sodium) is an amazing experience! Cheering you on!!

If you find that everything tastes bland, cut out sodium for a week to get your taste buds back!!!
