Whole Foods, Fractured Foods & Junk Foods
Nature provides the perfect balance of nutrients to support health in all whole foods. They include whole:
- Leafy Greens
- Anything you can make with the whole ingredients above
Fractured foods include all the rest. Avoid these if you want to be as healthy as possible:
- white flour
- white sugar
- white rice
- extracts of anything
- corn syrup
- soy protein isolate
In other words, anything made from part of a food while discarding the rest. (Of course, that also includes meat products, because people rarely consume a whole animal.) While these are not as bad as junk foods, be sure to limit your consumption to rare occasions.
We all like to splurge now and then, or celebrate with foods and drinks that we know are not very good for us. That isn’t a big problem as long as you are already healthy. Then you can feel free to eat these foods once in awhile without much problem.
However, if you have any sort of chronic disease, or other health issues, these may be exactly the foods that are preventing you from healing. Give yourself a few months without them and see how you feel. You may find that you never want to go back!
Junk foods include outright toxins, as well as denatured foods:
- anything with the word “artificial” in front of it
- natural flavors
- citric acid
- MSG (including nutritional yeast)
- GMO foods (almost all corn, soy, beet sugar, plus non-organic small papayas, zucchini, and more)
- a whole list of chemical food additives
- canola oil
- fried foods
- anything made predominantly with fractured foods
- most packaged foods in boxes and bags
The more of these you include in your diet, the faster your health will deteriorate. Easy peasy!
