Things We Learned From This Episode
- 90% of Americans try to eat healthy but have no idea what that means or where to begin and are confused in general about how to eat well.
- Most Americans eat 15 lbs of sugar a year and get 1400 chemicals through their food (processed food)!
- Sugar (not including natural sugar from fruit) is more addictive than drugs like heroine, and hit your reward center in your brain giving you a rush of dopamine (feel good hormone). It is not your fault if you are addicted to sugar and flour (flour also has the same sugar like effects on your body).
- The best place to start is by taking action and making a food shopping list, getting rid of processed items and cooking at home, preparing food for the week. Sharing homemade food with friends, family and neighbors also creates deeper bonds and social connections.
- Getting at least 3 servings of greens a day can add 11 years of healthy brain function to your life…kale, anyone?! 🙂
