Choose foods that honour your unique body.
I am a logical and science-minded person. I know that every human being is bio-chemically individual; and to take it even further, at different points in a person’s life, they are bio-chemically different. When choosing foods, we’re better off to always listen to what our body is telling us.
Using plant-based, whole foods as the base of any diet is paramount. I believe (based on science) that a gluten-free diet benefits humans; and I believe that refined sugar is unnecessary, and natural sugars should be limited. However, we should adjust out from there.
I have eaten in a vegetarian way, and felt fantastic while balancing my hormones; I have eaten in a paleo fashion, and thrived; I have undertaken an elimination diet, and learned amazing things about my body and my daughter.
In short, many elements influence our nutritional needs. We are blessed to live in a place and time where we have the resources to decide what we put in our bodies. I think as a culture we should be less concerned with the label we may put on our diet, and ourselves, and more concerned with the benefits our diet offers our body.
