This month I am talking about SIMPLE steps you can take to get – and stay – on track with your healthy habits.

One of the BEST steps you can take is to avoid these foods if at all possible.

I’m talking about ULTRA-PROCESSED FOODS – factory-made cookies, chips, breads, boxed meals, frozen meals, etc.

These foods activate your brain’s reward centers – making you crave them, and even causing you to overeat.

The difference between PROCESSED and ULTRA-PROCESSED FOODS is that when you do anything to a food – like cooking it – it’s technically a form of processing. So that means sauteed greens and roasted chicken are “processed” foods.

BUT ultra-processed foods are made from low-quality, highly inflammatory ingredients (unhealthy fats, added sugar, and highly refined grains). 

As a result, they’re low in fiber, protein, and valuable plant chemicals and other micronutrients your body needs to function at its best!

If you eat these foods, you will be doing your health a major favor if you take a big step away from them.

Instead, make SMART SWAPS to whole, nutrient-rich foods whenever possible:

  • Nuts
  • Fruit
  • Veggies
  • Whole (unrefined) grains
  • Lean proteins

And healthier homemade versions of those ultra-processed foods as “treats”

It can be an adjustment for your taste buds to get used to non-ultra processed foods … but you will be absolutely AMAZED at the difference in how you feel. 

Just some of the changes you might notice: more energy, fewer cravings, fewer aches & pains, better sleep, improved workout performance and concentration, and so much more!

→ Try it for just ONE week and see for yourself.
