Today at a Glance

Are you tired of feeling sluggish, weak, and unsatisfied with your life?

It’s time to take control of your health and happiness.
It all starts with what you put on your plate.

Say goodbye to processed foods and hello to a vibrant, energized you.

Let’s make a change today.

We’ll show you how to make the switch to real, unprocessed foods and provide you with a balanced lunch idea to get you started.

Let’s dive in…

Processed foods sabotage our health

When people start to look at their grocery shopping with the goal of eliminating processed food, they get discouraged. The most common thought is: “I am going to starve”.

That’s because most of the food we are eating every day is processed or highly processed.

Especially when we look at the typical American diet.

How many people are eating single ingredients on a daily basis? Unfortunately—not many.

(Even in Italy, the home country of the Mediterranean Diet, many people today consume mostly processed foods.)

The food industry succeeds by making their food taste so good that customers keep coming back for more.

Processed foods are designed to be addictive and create a cycle of cravings that makes it difficult to eliminate them from your diet.

What’s the REAL problem here?

These foods are often high in sugar, salt, and unhealthy fats, which can cause inflammation and other negative health effects.

Additionally, processed foods are often convenient and readily available, making them a go-to option for people with a busy lifestyle.

Processed foods can have negative effects on both the body and mind, which is the worst thing.

They often lack important nutrients and can be high in sugar, salt, and unhealthy fats. This can lead to weight gain, high blood pressure, and other health problems.

In addition, processed foods can impact mental health, leading to increased anxiety and depression.

The solution

Eating real, unprocessed foods can help improve both physical and mental health.

Today, we provide you with an example of a balanced real-food lunch. Take it as a reference when preparing your lunch.

Reducing or getting rid of processed food requires

• awareness,
• commitment,
• a change in mindset, and yes,

some education that allows you to create your intuitive food choices.

This weekend, think about which kind of rest you need to improve and commit to one little change toward a more balanced life.
