Our food choices should be a #1 priority..eating organic grown or home grown foods and avoiding the processed as much as possible.   So many genetically alterted foods are in our stores and the fall out in our health is becoming alarming!..

 

Although I'm not a fan of some of the fermented foods Dr. Mercola suggests, I guess if I was at a cross roads in my digestive health, I would at least give some a try.

I am a frequent shopper at local farmer's markets for my fruits and vegetables. There are 'winter' and 'summer' farmer's markets in most towns and cities now.  The best home grown and pesticide free produce can be found at these markets, along with many meats, cheese, honey, herbs, oats, etc.,  plus better pricing, not found in many so-called organic shelves in our stores...

You Are What You Eat, So Make Healthy Choices

The truth of the old adage that “you are what you eat” is becoming increasingly clear the more we learn about the microbiome and its intricate role in health. The best way to optimize your gut flora, and your overall health, is through your diet. Fermented foods are the best route to optimal digestive health, as long as you eat the traditionally made, unpasteurized versions.

Healthy choices include lassi (an Indian yoghurt drink, traditionally enjoyed before dinner), fermented grass-fed organic milk such as kefir, various pickled fermentations of cabbage, turnips, eggplant, cucumbers, onions, squash, and carrots, and natto (fermented soy). Fermented vegetables are an excellent choice to supply beneficial bacteria to your gut.

As an added bonus, they can also a great source of vitamin K2 if you ferment your own using the proper starter culture. Another wise choice is to simply swap processed foods for real foods, as described in my nutrition plan. People have thrived on vegetables, meats, eggs, fruits, and other whole foods for centuries, while processed foods were only recently invented.

Many of the top executives and scientists at leading processed food companies actually avoid their own foods for a variety of health reasons. If you want some ideas of delicious, healthy foods to get started eating right, here are 18 excellent foods packed with health-promoting compounds like antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals known to play a role in longevity.
