Harness Whole Health
Nutrients are most heavily concentrated when foods are in their natural state. Though many processed foods have health claims on the box, whole foods usually offer more antioxidants, fiber and essential vitamins. Plus, processed foods pack unhealthy extras like sugar, fat, sodium and other additives.
Purify your diet this week by choosing whole foods over more processed options; replace apple- sauce with sliced apples, choose baked potato wedges with olive oil over French fries, or opt for whole grain oats over packaged granola bars.
