Includes fatty fish like salmon, sardines, mackerel 2 to 3 servings every week. Another great super food is beans, peas, lentils at least 3 to 4 servings every week. Beans help in the stabilizing of female hormones and a great source for protein and fiber. Make sure to also include tomatoes, watermelon, red grapefruit and the red navel oranges eating at least 3 to 5 servings daily. The powerhouse nutrient packed in these fruits is lycopene.  Lycopene may fight breast cancer and a great antioxidant for women with heart disease. Super food vitamin d or orange juice taking daily. You want to get at least 400 IUs of vitamin d daily.

Healthy Cooking

Cooking feeds your body, mind, and soul. It allows you to control the food you put into your body, connect with your family and friends over a home cooked meal, and save the money you might otherwise spend in restaurants or on processed, prepackaged foods. Believe it or not, making simple and satisfying meals from scratch doesn’t have to be hard. Here are some of my favorite easy, healthy recipes. You’ll find that eating well can also be delicious!

  • Use extra-virgin olive oil as a main cooking oil. If you want a neutral tasting oil, use expeller-pressed, organic canola oil. Organic, high-oleic, expeller pressed versions of sunflower and safflower oil are also acceptable.
  • On a 2,000-calorie-a-day diet, your daily intake of protein should be between 80 and 120 grams. Eat less protein if you have liver or kidney problems
  • Try to eat 40 grams of fiber a day.
  • Choose organic produce whenever possible. Learn which conventionally grown crops are most likely to carry pesticide residues and avoid them.
