Diets come and go. Trends do the same. What doesn’t come and go is healthy eating. Yet, with all the hype of the latest diet craze, one is left to wonder what is healthy.

Enter The Food Codes™. The Food Codes is all about eating according to what your body requires.

A Change to Plant-Based Eating

Over the last decade, there has been quite a shift to plant-based eating. Many are choosing this way of eating because of their love of animals. Others choose plant-based eating strictly for health reasons. And still others, for both reasons.

Regardless of why one chooses a plant-based eating protocol, the number one concern is getting enough minerals, protein and vitamins.

Amazingly, you can get a sufficient supply of everything you need when you eat a variety of plant-based.

Variety is the Spice of Life … and your Health

If you only eat one type of green vegetable and one type of fruit, you are headed for trouble.

However, if you have a variety of foods in your diet, you will do great. Although I use the word diet, it’s best not to view a plant-based protocol as a diet per se. The people who choose this type of eating see it as a lifestyle rather than something they do for a short period of time to lose weight.

What is Plant-Based Eating?

Let’s start with what a whole-foods, plant-based diet actually is. The emphasis is on whole, minimally processed foods which mean you avoid animal products. It emphasizes whole, minimally processed foods. This protocol severely limits or avoids animal products.
The focus is on plants, including vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, seeds and nuts, which should make up the majority of what you eat.

How Does Plant-Based Fit Into The Food Codes?

Like any food you choose to eat, you can simply muscle test the various choices available. As you dig deep into plant-based eating, you’ll find you have a lot of choice. The best part is, if you do want to lose weight, you likely don’t have to count calories unless you are consuming a lot of avocados and nuts.

It’s best to limit your nuts to one or two ounces a day of raw, unsalted nuts. When adding avocados to your menu, a half is plenty for the day.

Choose Organic When Possible

Due to the way foods are grown, it’s best to choose organic if possible. Organic minerals are obtained from plants, and are more easily absorbed by the body’s cells than inorganic ones. This is one of the reasons why good fruits and vegetables are so beneficial for our bodies.

Of course, if organic is not available, don’t let that stop you from consuming fruits and vegetables. Just make sure to wash everything well.

The bottom-line is this, you can eat according to The Food Codes while eating a plant-based protocol. You’re likely to feel incredible when you respond to what your body needs when it comes to vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, seeds and nuts.
