Hello everyone. I’m so excited that you decided to join me in our 31 days to cleaner or healthier eating. Each one of these videos will have 1 simple concept for you to chew on. It’s your choice what you do with it. Try it for a day, a week, a month or implement for your entire life. My hope is it helps you open your mind to learning more about fueling your body more healthily.

Part of cleaning up what we eat is getting educated and alot of these videos focus on awareness. What you do with that is up to you.

When was the last time you cooked a meal from scratch? How many ingredients were in it? Did you know what these ingredients were? Eating as close to the whole food as possible guarantees a few things: we get all the nutrients available from that source and we are less likely to get any extra additives or chemicals we don’t need. The closer to the source, the more naturally nutritious. And then we are less likely to mess with our biochemistry or metabolism with hurtful chemicals.

Drink orange or apple juice or eat an orange or apple? Try to eat as close to the whole food as possible. Learn to cook if you don’t already. Start slow, 1 recipe a month. Make a large quantity, split into smaller and freeze them. Plan. We are all busy. But 2-4 hours a week spent planning, shopping, cleaning, cutting, cooking, packing and freezing can add years to your life. Plus you will find recipes and foods that you will like better than the pre-made ones. I can’t eat frozen convenience foods. Makes me gag. I can taste the added chemicals. It does not taste real. We’ll talk about this a little more in another video.

Thanks for your time. This is Coach Lana and I would love for you to join me at http://facebook.com/coachlana so we can connect.
