Pink Radishes & Parsnips

Radishes are one of my newest food obsessions. They are great for detoxing the liver, and helps with weight management. They are loaded with vitamin C, folate, fiber, riboflavin, and potassium. If you haven’t tried parsnips, they’re delicious as well! They’re a member of the carrot family, but have a sweeter flavor. I love the smell of them baking in the oven. They too are loaded with vitamins and fiber and have many health benefits.

JUST EAT REAL FOOD – Stop focusing on calories & focus on what you’re eating and how it makes you feel. Your body is always giving you signals, but many times we ignore them. Pay attention if you develop nausea, gas, bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, headaches, joint pain, rashes, sinus problems, or cold sores. If you develop any of these things after eating, it’s a good indicator that your body is giving you a clue to stop consuming something in your food. Many times these symptoms come from consuming chemicals, artificial coloring, and preservatives. Other times these symptoms can occur from a food allergy or sensitivity. Pay attention. Creating a food diary is a really great way to help you figure out what your triggers are. Food elimination diets are a great way to figure out what your triggers are.
