5 Healthy Alternatives to Everyday Foods and Additives.

As I have learned about all the benefits of eating healthier and making small changes in my diet to promote better immunity, fight against cancer, lower cholesterol, keep blood pressure within normal ranges... I have learned all it takes is simple changes in everyday foods.  (Stay tuned to my personal story and how cleaner eating has changed my life)

Here is a list of 5 Things you can do to add additional nutrients to you and your child's diet


Organic Butter is free from hormones and chemicals.  Regular Butter stores much of the chemicals that animal was exposed to.  Organic Butter has nutrients rich in Vitamin A, E & K which are vital for Adrenal and Thyroid Function.  Organic Butter contains Linoleic Acid vital for bone growth, immunity and good bacteria.

2.  Replace Table Salt with Unrefined Sea Salt

Table Salt is bleached, refined and stripped of all nutrients.
Sea Salt has Alkaline agents for cancer prevention, helps with asthma, eczema, healthier for the heart in moderation, and builds immunity

3.  Raw Organic Cheese 

Great for Homemade Macaroni and Cheese

Free of Antibiotics & Growth hormones.  Enriched with Vitamin A, E & D.  5X Higher in Linoleic Acid.  Contains Omega 3 for healthy heart and immunity.

4.  GO GLUTEN Free 

Replace All Wheat Enriched Breads, Pastas and Cereals with Certified Gluten Free Products.  (SO readily available and at many Grocery Stores).  Eliminating Gluten will help with stomach aches, diarrhea, eczema, skin issues, inflammation, bloating, headache, fatigue, and improves concentration levels.

There are so many reasons to go Gluten Free.  There are so many resources out there that explains why you should go gluten free.  A great read is the Yeast Connection Book.

5.  Replace Bleached Refined Sugars with Stevia, Raw Sugar, Agave Nectar, Honey, Organic Maple Syrup, or Especially Molasses

The first thing they tell cancer patients is to eliminate sugar.  Cancer feeds off of sugars.  Begin to switch to healthier alternatives to help with immunity.  Molasses has Vitamin B 6 and has 20% of Iron. Raw Cane Sugar has calcium, magnesium and riboflavin.  Use Molasses to help with kidney function, helps reduce fevers and boost protein levels.

Cheers to Healthy Living!!!
