Avoid preservatives, color additives and toxic binders, stabilizers, emulsifiers and the fat replacers.Consume healthy fats (essential fatty acids) everyday. Learn about portion sizes and work toward eating within them. Reduce your carbon print. Eat produce that is seasonal and local. It is less taxing on your wallet and the environment. Consume humanely raised, local meats and ocean-friendly seafood. Practice mindful eating. Never rush through a meal. Food tastes best, when savored. Enjoy every bite. Take it to go. Pack a cooler for work or outings so you always have clean eats on the go.
