Looking For Important Food Nutrition
“ You are what you eat” Or so somebody once said. Napoleon Bonaparte said that his army travels on its stomach. The bottom line of these sayings and others like them points to the direction of the important food nutrition choices you and your family make.
Your overall health and diet program is determined by what you are putting in your stomach.
Your common sense will always lead you to a balanced diet of quality proteins, complex carbohydrates, healthy fats, and a good portion of fiber. Well, we hope you are thinking in that direction.

Read the ingredient labels, if you can’t pronounce a word there, stay away.
Try avoiding pasta, bread, and other starchy foods.
If you are looking for the all-important food nutrition code…..look no further than food our ancestors lived on: lean meat, fresh fish, fresh fruit, seeds, and nuts. Plenty of garden produce and the avoidance of processed foods and sugar.
