I felt the need to list the important elements of how I know I should be eating, and reinforce my axioms of eating for nutrition.
Michael Pollan: Eat food, not too much, mostly plants
Dr. Fuhrman: Eat a pound each of raw and cooked veggies a day, 2 or 3 oz of healthy fat, at least a cup of beans and three fruits. Eat from the top of the list of nutritionally dense foods. Use G-Bombs as a daily reminder when preparing meals. (Greens, Beans, Onions, Mushrooms, Berries and Seeds)
Common Sense: Stay away from processed foods, which thereby eliminates artificial sweeteners, high fructose corn syrup, all other added sugars, high sodium intake, and a weird assortment of chemicals, 'food products' and GMO crops. Buy organic whenever reasonable because, again, GMO's are everywhere and I have enough challenges without subjecting my body to more foreign substances.
HYDRATE: We are "ugly bags of walking water" Star Trek, and need to replenish our water often for optimum health.
FOCUS ON THE POSITIVE: Look for health, do not despair over denial. Think about eating healthy instead of fighting about crap you are not eating.
